It seems a bit premature now that he's finally gaining the kind of adulation that eluded him for much of his career.
American Cormier, 39, challenged former champion Lesnar to a fight following his title win at UFC 226.
"It's insane that people say me and Lesnar would be a mega fight when the reality is the mega fight is Jones and I", Cormier told FloCombat.
Sure, he promised his family he'd retire when he turned 40, but people break promises all the time.
The preliminary fights will be available to watch on the UFC's Fight Pass service. "I did it after three years". "Stuff like that means something to me, which is a bit unsafe because the UFC knows, if they dangle the carrot, they know they can get me to bite by putting all that historical stuff in front of me".
Is Lewis deserving of a shot at a UFC title? After regaining the title in 2016, Jones was stripped again, this time for failing a USADA drug test days before a scheduled rematch with Cormier at UFC 200. I think I have a wrestling tournament that weekend, but we will see.

RIP Kepler: NASA's Legendary Planet Hunting Space Telescope is Dead
Both missions, with their vastly distinct data sets, have given scientists here on Earth a lot to think about. Over the life of the mission, more than 100,000 of those stars were actively monitored by Kepler .
UK Brexit chief seeks elusive N.Ireland border solution
Four of the five parties expressed frustration after the meeting and they pressed Ms Bradley to convene multi-party talks.
"Me getting to fight Brock Lesnar - because I remember my partner, Cain Velasquez fighting him in 2010". But Jones was more popular and Cormier's reign as the light heavyweight champ during Jones' absences wasn't validated until he defeated Miocic. So, just to be standing opposite of him in an octagon is going to be insane, but once that bell rings and they yell fight, I am going to kill him.
"If my wife is in town I eat her ass", he said. It hasn't always been good. Some guys have to fight to make money, but I'm busy working TV and I'm still doing well and it also gives me the opportunity to spend more time with my kids and my wife.
"Isn't it unbelievable that it took 10 years (to get the recognition), but it is what it is", Cormier said Thursday from media day for UFC 230, which he is headlining with a heavyweight title defence against Derrick Lewis.
But Cormier has solidified himself as one of MMA's greatest fighters and most dominant wrestlers. I won the fight and I told Brock to get in here. "I also corner guys, I also coach, so there are ways for me to stay involved in competition". I like showing them there's a place they can go to in a fight that's so uncomfortable they won't truly push themselves anymore.
