Daniel Cormier added the UFC heavyweight championship to his light heavyweight title four months ago in July, stopping Stipe Miocic in dramatic fashion during the first round of their super fight at UFC 226 and became only the second man in the history of UFC after Conor McGregor to simultaneously hold World title in two different weight classes.
After the post-fight interview, Cormier called Lesnar into the cage, and Lesnar shoved Cormier in the chest while the fighters traded insults to hype a potential future bout. However, Cormier recently appeared on Ariel Helwani’s MMA show, where he revealed that Brock Lesnar might be present cageside for UFC 230. Cormier’s coach Rosendo Sanchez also shoved Lesnar after Lesnar pushed Cormier. He further said that if Lesnar tries to push Cormier, it won’t end well for him.
“He [Rosendo Sanchez] told me when he pushed Lesnar, I had better be behind Lesnar to help him because, at that moment, he knew he was about to get his a** kicked.
Brock’s going to be there [at UFC 230] I guess. Brock’s coming to lay claim to [his spot]. But this time I’m not going to let him just push me.
If he comes up there, [motions a slap] right in the face. Slap him. [laughs]”
Cormier also revealed last week that he was going to try out for commentary position at WWE and said it was a lifelong dream for him as he has been a fan of pro wrestling for a very long time.
“It’s [working with WWE] a big dream. I’m a lucky guy to where I’m experiencing and getting a lot of opportunities. They reached out to me. Right now it’s in the backburner because I have to get through Saturday [UFC 230] but we’ll sew what happens after this weekend.
I’m not talking about me starting this [commentary for the WWE] right now, but to go and see if it works, of course. All these opportunities you can’t put on the backburner for too long. You have to kind of see how everything goes.”
