The former UFC light heavyweight and heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier has often been touted as the successor to the current UFC President Dana White. Now, Cormier, has himself commented on this and revealed that he would one day love to be the UFC President and had also revealed the reason why he just loves working for the company.
Cormier was recently in a conversation with MMA Fighting. Here’s what he had to say on being asked why he loves working for the UFC and will he consider taking over the leadership of the organisation from White:
I think anybody in the world in their right might would [take the job], To be at the head of an organization that does so many great things in terms of entertainment, and not only that, but community help. I think what people don’t see is the type of influence that the UFC has in the community. The work that they do with youth programs and programs around the world. I think if you ever have an opportunity or anyone has an opportunity to do a job like that, they would be insane not to hope to have that opportunity. But Dana’s going to be here for a long time. Dana’s the man.
Absolutely, I would love any job with the UFC, I love this organization. I think since I came over from Strikeforce, I’ve made some good relationships with the people in the company. I’ve started to learn. I’ve just really learned about this company and the one thing that really stands out the most for me is how much time, energy and effort the UFC puts into helping the youths. That stands out to me because that’s something I do. I know how important it is for Dana and the UFC to support local programs and support athletic clubs, support academic clubs. There’s just so many things that they do to try and help people around the world, it really makes me appreciate who I work for.
