Cormier is coming to the end of his remarkable career as he continues to be one of the most dominant fighters in the sport. It is looking ever more likely that he will face off against Brock Lesnar at the end of the year, which would certainly be a well-deserved payday considering how big a star Brock is. Here we cover the careers of each fighter.

Daniel Cormier

At 40 years of age, Cormier is still one of the leading fighters in the sport and is ranked number one in the pound for pound rankings by the UFC. He has long been fighting many of the leading names in the sport, so a fight with Lesnar is much deserved. Cormier fights out of the American Kickboxing Academy and has a professional record of 22 wins, 1 loss and 1 no contest. The loss and no contest, of course, each time coming against bitter rival Jon Jones.

Could we yet see the pair face off one more time? Cormier has a list of impressive victories over the likes of Anthony Johnson, Alexander Gustafsson and more recently Stipe Miocic. The victory over the latter was remarkable considering how dominant he had been for the last few years as the heavyweight champion. Cormier won via a knockout in the first round.

Cormier will be a strong favourite going into the fight with Lesnar and can be supported at around 2/5, with punters using a review of 888 to support him.

Brock Lesnar

Lesnar is a huge star of the WWE and always draws impressive numbers when taking to the cage. This fight would almost certainly be a bumper payday for each fighter, which is why it is most likely going to take place. Lesnar is 41 years of age himself, so is also coming to the end of his fighting career.

Lesnar fights out of Team Death Clutch and has a professional record of 5 wins, 3 losses and 1 no contest. The no contest came in his last fight against Mark Hunt, as the result was overturned by the Nevada Athletic Commission. Lesnar was also defeated in his previous two fights against Cain Velasquez and Alistair Overeem. Prior to this, he had won five of his opening six bouts. Lesnar has now not tasted victory since back in 2010, as has been very inactive as he continues to be a star of WWE. This means it would come as a huge shock were he able to defeat Cormier and this is also shown in the fact he has been made 11/4 to topple the champ.
