It’s unclear what the future holds for Daniel Cormier in MMA, but he’s said he’s looking at one more fight and he wants it to be a rematch against Stipe Miocic. After that, he plans to retire.

So what then?

There were discussions with WWE for some kind of role within the company, possibly as an announcer. However, there would seem to be a lot more value there, what with the angle he shot with Brock Lesnar following a UFC event that was supposed to lead to a fight between the two. It never did. If he signed with WWE, though?

Oh, and Triple H has made clear the promotion is still interested, as he told TMZ Sports:

“I love Daniel. We’ve obviously talked a lot in the past. We’ve had conversations about him doing stuff with us in the past whether that’s in-ring or whether that’s commentary or doing different things. I think we’d love to do something with him if the time is right — obviously, respectful to UFC and to Dana and everything else. We’d love to chat with him and we have an open relationship as far as communication so I’m sure shortly we will when he figures out what he wants to do.”

The Cain Velasquez experiment didn’t work out particularly well, but Cormier has the charisma and wrestling skill to make things interesting. Why not give it a shot?

Triple H also mentioned WWE having interest in Conor McGregor but, well, of course they do.
