After UFC 232 last night, UFC president Dana White provided an update on the future of Brock Lesnar in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Lesnar faced Daniel Cormier earlier this year at UFC 226 and many believed it would be his back fight, but he still has to overcome the required USADA re-entry period that will begin in early 2019.
Due to the victory of Jon Jones on Alexander Gustafsson last night, this also opens the door to Jones to fight Cormier for the third time instead of Brock. It will very much depend on whether Cormier decides whether or not to retire in March, because if he does, it is likely that he will resume between Jones and Lesnar over who gets the fight.
White also stated that if Cormier decides to fight three times more, what he believes is a possibility, then Jon Jones, Brock Lesnar and Stipe Miocic make sense for the champion.

About whether Brock Lesnar is out of the title image:
"No, it's not. It's not out of the picture."
About if the UFC could sign it:
"Absolutely. I think you are already in contract with me."
About its future:
"We were talking about that, and then it ended up signing a new agreement with WWE. What I think happens is that it is in a very special position, because it can play this between UFC and WWE. They come to the thread, and I think Vince throws so much money on him that goes well, I'll do it again. " Because here it is here, it does not matter what. When he's ready, he can come here and fight and he'll also make a burden of money here. So it makes sense. I guess that's what's happening. "
