The UFC and contention have constantly gone connected at the hip now and again, yet 2018 has seen some especially important minutes, to a great extent due to the reckless style of UFC President Dana White and the contribution of some overwhelming characters like McGregor and Brock Lesnar.
In this article, Allsportspk presents the five most controversial moments of of 2018.
#5 Brock Lesnar Challenges Daniel Cormier
One of the greatest pay-per-view draws in UFC history, previous UFC Heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar at first resigned from MMA following a misfortune to Alistair Overeem back in December 2011.
From that point he came back to WWE – where he at first turned into a hotshot in the mid 2000’s – and it appeared as though his time inside the UFC Octagon was over for good.
It came as an immense stun when the UFC declared an arrival for Lesnar in 2016, in the nick of time for UFC 200, and at first, it resembled ‘The Beast Incarnate’ would have a fruitful rebound. He vanquished Mark Hunt by consistent choice yet along these lines tried positive for a prohibited substance – the estrogen blocker ostarine.
Because of this, Lesnar was suspended for a year by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, fined $250,000, and the consequence of the Hunt battle was changed to a No Contest.
In mid 2017, it was accounted for that Lesnar would resign from MMA for good, and from that point he immediately came back to WWE.
That is the reason it was such an unexpected when Lesnar showed up out of the blue at UFC 226 – where Stipe Miocic confronted Daniel Cormier for the UFC Heavyweight title – and burst into the Octagon present battle on test a successful Cormier for a title battle eventually in 2019. The move lit up the MMA world but on the other hand was massively dubious.
To permit Lesnar to get a title shot after long stretches of inertia – while dynamic warriors had been climbing the step – appeared to be quite out of line, yet when you tossed in the way that he was falling off a PED suspension – when the UFC was attempting to tidy the game up utilizing USADA testing – the entire thing fell off pretty seriously.
We at present do not have any affirmation of the Cormier/Lesnar battle, yet from all reports, despite everything it has all the earmarks of being likely for 2019. Anticipate that the discussion around this issue should proceed.
