Cormier has been such a dominant force with his grappling throughout the course of his career that it's hard to see how that doesn't become a huge factor in this fight.
As noted earlier, MMA reporter Jeremy Botter cited multiple sources saying that the plan is for Lesnar vs. Cormier at UFC 230 in Madison Square Garden. Afterward, Cormier invited former UFC heavyweight champion and current World Wrestling Entertainment superstar Brock Lesnar into the cage.

Bisping has been one of the most outspoken fighters in the sport when firing back at athletes who use performance-enhancing drugs, so he certainly believes that harms Jones' case to be considered the greatest to ever step inside the Octagon.
"It's another fight for me", he said.
While the event has taken a big hit with Max Holloway's removal from his title fight with Brian Ortega after showing concussion-like symptoms during fight week, the card is still stacked with star power. "(Gustafsson's) going to have to do something very special to earn a fight for the 205-pound belt".
Sporting a splint courtesy of an injury to his finger, Cormier's first order of business is to heal up from a damaging training camp. White had previously said Lesnar would be returning to the company later this year.
