Brock Lesnar UFC challenge, Rousey WWE title and more in the Sunday Morning Rumor Mill

Sunday Morning Rumor Mill brock day

Happy Father’s day. Usually the holiday of Brock-tober falls during the month of October but it may have come earlier in the year of our Fight Lord 2018. A early heavyweight holiday means six more weeks of summer or six more weeks of the Sunday Morning Rumor Mill.

The fallout from UFC 225 rocked the MMA world to its core only it really didn’t. The Chi-town show saw one classic title fight, one meh title fight and a whole lot of deep CM Punk think pieces.

What is MMA? MMA is whatever you want it to be. 

As always these are rumors that have been talked about behind closed doors between MMA higher ups, so take them as MMA rumors.

Before you head down to the beach/lake/pool give your old man a fist bump, hug, high five, double middle finger or a kiss on the cheek then impress your dear old dad with talks of the Sunday Morning Rumor Mill.

  • Rumors is there has been talk within the WWE that Ronda Rousey’s match may be the main event of the their Money in the Bank pay-per-view/WWE Network special.There has also been speculation that Rouse’s title match with Nia Jax may go on earlier to allow ESPN and other news outlet to run with the results on Sunday night. 
  • Gearing up for the UFC leaving Fox Sports 1, rumor is the WWE is already working on a show that will replace UFC Tonight on FS1
  • Despite initially low pay-per-view buy numbers reported for UFC 225, news rumors have surfaced that the CM Punk-two title fight did slightly better at the box office. UFC 225 still flopped sources say but it looks the final PPV buy number will check in closer to 200k
  • Huge if true, but the latest Brock Lesnar has the former UFC heavyweight champion showing up at an UFC very soon. This feeds into the rumor that Lesnar will not defend his WWE title this summer. Rumors are swarming that Lesnar will appear at the end of UFC 226 and the challenge the winner of the main event; think old school post-fight /in-cage staredown.
