Brock Lesnar has signed a new deal with WWE again – a deal that puts his highly-anticipated fight with UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier in serious doubt.

Lesnar showed up at UFC 226 and shoved Cormier, thus allowing Dana White to make their match official. However, the date was not announced as The Beast is still in the USADA testing pool and will be eligible to fight after early January 2019 provided he is able to deliver clean tests consistently for 6 months (from July 2018).

Dave Meltzer of MMA Fighting reports that although the length of The Beast’s new contract isn’t known, it’s expected to run through WrestleMania 35.

“Lesnar agreed secretly to the new deal, and won the pro wrestling championship again. The new deal is for multiple shows. But its length of time has been kept secretive. But it is known that Lesnar is scheduled as late as April of next year for WrestleMania.”

On the other hand, Cormier will retire in March 2019 on turning 40. If Lesnar isn’t able to make it to UFC before March due to obligations on part of WWE, “DC” will have to stay content with opponent Jon Jones in his last fight inside The Octagon.

It is to be noted that The Beast’s new WWE deal isn’t exclusive. This makes the reigning Universal Champion eligible to fight in UFC while still under contract with WWE. As of this writing, Lesnar is yet to sign a deal with UFC and that puts his fight with Cormier in a more doubtful state.

Lesnar went 1-on-1 with Braun Strowman for the vacant Universal Championship at WWE Crown Jewel. The Beast crushed The Monster with only a set of F5s to recapture the championship gold that he lost to Roman Reigns at SummerSlam.

Lesnar is currently scheduled to appear on RAW next week to hype his Survivor Series match against SmackDown Live Champion AJ Styles.
