What is more certain is that the two MMA superstars are set to square off in the Octagon — just as soon as Lesnar is cleared to do so.

So do we — but we’ll watch anyway.

Ronda Rousey isn’t going to watch Brock Lesnar when he returns to the UFC to face off with Daniel Cormier. Or, at least that’s what she told TMZ.

“Both guys are friends of mine, so I don’t want to pick sides,” Rousey said. “I can’t get involved in that one, that’ll be hard to watch. I probably won’t watch it. I hate watching friends of mine fight, it’s heartwrenching. You’re not happy about anything, so I don’t want to do it.”

  Stipe Miocic criticizes UFC for handling of Brock Lesnar, demands rematch vs. Daniel Cormier The former UFC heavyweight champion is none too pleased with what transpired at UFC 226Miocic (18-3), who is the only UFC heavyweight champion to defend the title three consecutive times, pulled no punches while speaking with ESPN on Sunday about Lesnar's antics, which included entering the Octagon, calling Miocic "a piece of s---" and shoving Cormier.

Ronda Rousey probably won't watch Brock Lesnar vs Daniel Cormier . The first ever UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion has unfinished business with Bliss as she ruined her opportunity of becoming RAW Women’s Champion at Money in the Bank.

That’s one reason to not watch the fight. And a valid one at that.

Another is that, since Lesnar’s last official MMA victory, Cormier has:

  • Won the XMMA Heavyweight Championship
  • Won the King of the Cage Heavyweight Championship
  • Won the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix
  • Dropped to light heavyweight
  • Won the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship
  • Successfully defended that belt three times
  • Moved back to heavyweight
  • Defeated arguably the greatest heavyweight in UFC history to win the UFC Heavyweight Championship
  • Compiled a 19-1 record with 12 stoppage victories against a list of some of the greatest fighters in MMA history

There’s little debate Lesnar being launched into a title fight on the strength of a single no contest with Mark Hunt at UFC 200 — a fight which he dominated but popped positive in multiple drug tests — is garbage on a sporting level.

Jon Jones accused of bribing USADA to score early UFC return

  Jon Jones accused of bribing USADA to score early UFC return Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, is sitting on millions of dollars in cash, according to his own boasts, and could probably buy his way back into the Octagon. Not that “Bones” would ever scruple to stoop so low. But his “scumbag” management team, on the other hand, is probably not above bribing officials from United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) to help expedite the ex-champ’s return, according to longtime rival Colby Covington.

Still, the UFC is desperate for big fights. They have their shiny new TV deal and are far from “in trouble,” but they still can’t seem to create new stars. The promotion needs Lesnar and McGregor to step back into the cage to get some buzz going again.

Hell, Cormier’s fight with Miocic should have done monster numbers — and would have in previous UFC periods. Instead, the early indicators are the show did less than 400,000 buys. That’s an awful number for as marquee a matchup as that fight was.

So, why not throw Lesnar vs. Cormier at the wall and see what happens?

There’s too much risk in playing around with Lesnar “earning” a title shot. What if he gets knocked out by ... well, by anyone? What if there’s another failed drug test along the way? What if he’s only got one fight in him before he wanders off to do something else (a particularly Lesnarian concern)?

Ronda Rousey Having Fun At A WWE House Show Was Everything Great About Wrestling

  Ronda Rousey Having Fun At A WWE House Show Was Everything Great About Wrestling PHILADELPHIA — Everybody in the arena knew Ronda Rousey was coming out next. The delay seemed to stretch on forever as we waited. It had been 25 seconds since Nia Jax’s theme ended 26, 27, 28, 29 … and, finally, “Bad Reputation” played. Ronda Rousey made her entrance. She got the loudest cheer of the night. Rousey doesn’t wrestle much. Though the former MMA champ is a burgeoning star due to her success in her previous unscripted fighting career, she’s still new to the world of fixed fights. She impressed in her debut at WrestleMania and looked solid in her first singles match last month. But put aside her already-decent technical ability.

Do the fight now. Make your money.

It’s just a shame Cormier is going to wreck Lesnar and be ready to retire shortly thereafter.

I wonder how long it’ll take before fans are interested in a Lesnar go-round with the next champ? Will his broken face even be healed by the presser?

Rooney reveals reason for leaving Everton .
Wayne Rooney has gone into more depth regarding his Everton departure this summer for MLS outfit DC United. Having only rejoined Everton last summer after 13 years away at Manchester United, the 32-year old departed Goodison Park once again this summer to link up with Washington D.C. based DC United. Initially, the former England captain claimed that his reasons for leaving the club would be revealed in time, and now he has broken down the situation over his departure. Speaking to ESPN, Rooney had this to say on leaving Merseyside: “Everton made it clear towards the end of the season that they would be happy for me to leave, for what ever reason I still don’t know.” “I felt I had done okay, was top goalscorer, played most of the season from midfield, but that’s football.” “That gave me a decision to make, and I made this decision.” “I said to Everton, ‘I’m not a kid. If this is what you want, tell me. If you want me to stay, tell me’ and we talked about it.” “As an 18, 20 or 21 year old, I wouldn’t have been able to handle it as well as I have. They let me know and I said fair enough, I’m not going to disrespect the football club.
