Daniel Cormier, WWE commentator?

Hey, here’s an interesting tidbit from Mike Bohn over at MMA Junkie:

Cormier, the current UFC heavyweight champion, who has a fight scheduled against Derrick Lewis on Nov. 3 in Madison Square Garden, is a big professional wrestling fan who has flirted with WWE in the past. He’s also talked openly about his exit plan from mixed martial arts.

Assuming he beats Lewis early next month, he will fight either Jon Jones — perhaps pending the result of his fight against Alexander Gustafsson in December — or Brock Lesnar. After that, he will retire. He’s been doing commentary for UFC in between fights, and he’s done a hell of a job. He’s both informative and entertaining, excitable with a genuine passion for what he’s commenting on.

Perfect for wrestling!

Stay tuned.
