During a chat with ESPN:
Daniel Cormier is the kind of guy to get some shine on ESPN and all of a sudden forget about the little people pic.twitter.com/aZvbeWgoCg— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) March 24, 2019
“I don’t have a fight exactly scheduled yet but I’ve got my eyes on Brock Lesnar. I may go to the WWE’s WrestleMania and I may go cost him his title over there so he can hurry up and get to the UFC so I can beat him here.”
Cormier and Lesnar have long been linked, both making clear they want a fight once Brock makes his way back to the UFC. They already had an in-cage confrontation after Cormier won the heavyweight title from Stipe Miocic at UFC 226 last July, and company President Dana White said he was interested in getting a deal done.
Vince McMahon has been using Lesnar as one of his top acts in WWE for most of the time since then. Now, he’s one of the top matches at the biggest show of the year, WrestleMania 35, and Cormier, still eager for the fight, is joking about showing up.
Jokes aside, that would probably make for one hell of an angle that would boost pay-per-view buys for their eventual fight.
