Daniel Cormier has made a name for himself in the octagon. Cormier has been announced as the referee for Seth Rollins vs Matt Riddle, Fight Pit match at Extreme Rules.
It was a surprise to everyone to see Cormier in WWE. Cormier and Brock Lesnar had a altercation in UFC couple of years ago. There were reports that Cormier vs Brock could have happen in UFC, but Brock retired from UFC. So the match never happen, so Daniel coming into WWE made fans excited.
Daniel Cormier on recent interview with Marc Raimondi of ESPN MMA, talked about rumours of facing Brock Lesnar in WWE
“I’ve not heard anything. That’s the thing, right? When something like this happens, and this was, honestly, very good for me because people started to talk. People started talking about, ‘Oh my goodness, I remember when him and Brock were in the octagon and they were supposed to fight.’ So, it seems to make a lot of sense. But as you know, just because something makes sense see, it doesn’t mean that it’s going to happen. So, no, there is no talk of me fighting Brock Lesnar.” (H/T: Fightful )
If Brock Lesnar vs Daniel Cormier match ever happen in WWE, it would attract large bunch of UFC fans to watch WWE. Lets see how Fight Pit match pans out, it would also be exciting if Brock shows up in Extreme Rules and challenges Cormier for a match at Crown Jewel.
