Cormier responded to the callout during his appearance on UFC Tonight.

“Here’s the deal: I never wrestled Yoel Romero, but in wrestling he probably would have served me up. He’s one of the great wrestlers of all-time. But, you don’t fail a class and then get moved up a grade to the next one,” he said.

DC also went on to note that he plans to defend the Light Heavyweight title as well if the right fight comes along.

“I don’t want them to take one of these belts. So I will defend it. I will defend the light heavyweight title if the right fight presents itself,” he said.

Cormier is expected to fight Brock Lesnar next for the Heavyweight championship even though no official announcement has been made yet.
