The Conqueror became the first ever two-time Universal Champion at WWE Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia last November where he defeated Strowman.

Lesnar and The Monster Among Men were initially supposed to battle in a Triple Threat Match against then title-holder Roman Reigns.

However, Reigns relinquished the belt last October after being diagnosed with leukaemia.

Lesnar still wrestles on a part-time basis and his most recent match took place at Survivor Series where he defeated WWE Champion Daniel Bryan in a stunning encounter.

Despite all the UFC speculation it seems like the six-time world champion will compete at WrestleMania even if he loses the title at the Royal Rumble.

And the ex-WWE Champion’s potential megamatch against Cormier could still happen at some point this year regardless.

DC is keen to battle the former UFC Heavyweight Champion and even urged him to bring the Universal Championship to the Octagon so he can win that too.

He said: "Brock Lesnar, when you come, bring that new WWE title.

"I feel like becoming a WWE champion too.

“Bring that belt with you if you come to my house."
