Cormier revealed this during a recent interview. The UFC Heavyweight champion also mentioned the possibility of Lesnar not being his next opponent.

“He’ll be the last one. He’ll be the last fight of my career. Will he be next? I don’t know. I hope so but I’ve still got a belt to defend at 205 [pounds] to think about,” he said. (via MMA Nytt)

Irrespective of how things turn out, Cormier is excited about the prospects that are lined up for him.

“It’s going to be difficult but as a professional, you have to approach every fight the same exact way, Cormier said about being excited to face a light heavyweight contender first before fighting Lesnar. I would prepare myself to win and to defend the title. Any time you’re in a UFC title fight it’s a big deal and for anybody to say they didn’t up for it is crazy. You’re a professional. You’re a fighter. You have to get up for these events,” Cormier added.
