How Lesnar/UFC return was hidden & rumored fight date Submitted by Aaron Rift on 07/10/2018 at 10:01 AM
Mike Johnson of PWInsiderElite.com talked about how the UFC managed to keep Brock Lesnar's appearance at UFC 226 a secret:
“Brock Lesnar was brought to cageside during the UFC Championship match, where Daniel Cormier won the UFC Title. We were told that Lesnar actually arrived in Vegas while that pay-per-view was on the air and they did not bring him into the building until about 30 seconds before they brought him down to cageside. They did not want news that Brock Lesnar was returning to leak out."
Regarding a possible fight date, John Nelson of the No Holds Barred Wrestling Show said the following:
“From what sources have indicated to me, that UFC wants to have that match, Daniel Cormier & Brock Lesnar for the Heavyweight Title the night before the Superbowl in February.”
