Following a busy couple of weeks, there seemed to be a lot of talk about The WWE Universal Title possibly appearing inside The UFC’s Octagon.
Lesnar reclaimed the title by defeating Braun Strowman at The WWE Crown Jewel PPV Event in Saudi Arabia and afterwards, UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier defended his title by choking out Derrick Lewis at UFC 230 at Madison Square Garden in New York.
After his win, D.C. spoke about Lesnar in his post-fight interview with Joe Rogan inside The Octagon and mentioned wanting him to bring his newly won WWE Universal Title Belt with him, as seen below:
“Brock Lesnar! When you come, bring that brand new WWE title too,” D.C. said. “I feel like being a WWE champion too. Let’s go! Let’s go, Brock! Bring that belt with you if you come to my house.”
At The UFC 230 press conference, UFC President Dana White then said that he doesn’t think Lesnar would bring The WWE Universal Title because WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon won’t let him, as seen below:
“I don’t think Vince [McMahon] would let him wear that into the Octagon, to be honest with you,” White said. “He can bring whatever belt he wants to bring.”
