Bellator President Scott Coker is prepared to welcome Brock Lesnar with open arms.
Former WWE Universal champion and former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar recently became a free agent. The news peaked Coker's interest, who wants to book him against the legendary Fedor Emelianenko.
Ariel Helwani of ESPN, who spoke with Coker, revealed the news through Twitter:
Asked Bellator President Scott Coker if he has interest in Brock Lesnar, and he replied:— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) August 31, 2020
“Yes, if he’s truly available. Fedor vs. Brock is interesting. It’s the fight that never happened!”
Lesnar, who holds a 5-3-0-1NC record as a professional MMA fighter, has not competed since fighting Mark Hunt to a no contest at UFC 200 in July of 2016. Lesnar has not won a professional MMA fight in over a decade with that last win coming over Shane Carwin at UFC 116.
Emelianenko last competed in the main event of Bellator 237, defeating former UFC light heavyweight champion Rampage Jackson by first-round TKO.
