Daniel Cormier has revealed that he's not above coming to WrestleMania to cost Brock Lesnar his title if that's what it takes to get him back to UFC.
In a world where almost everything about the lives of anyone even remotely famous is online for all to see, Brock Lesnar remains something of an enigma. The Beast lives on a farm with his family in the Canadian wilderness and keeps his private life as private as he possibly can. That means when it comes to the future of his career, there is always an almost endless amount of wild speculation.
There have been rumors that Lesnar would be done with WWE for a while. Every time it seems as if he is on his way out the door, Vince McMahon appears to drag him back in by throwing money at him. He even let the Universal Champion compete in UFC while remaining under contract with WWE back in 2016. Many are eagerly awaiting a repeat of that, but this time for a match against Daniel Cormier.
No one wants that match more than DC himself. Cormier has always said that he would leave the octagon behind when he turns 40. Well, that milestone came and went last week. However, Cormier is still left waiting for that dream match against The Beast. This weekend on UFC Fight Night, Cormier revealed that he is not done yet and he is still very interested in squaring off with WWE's Universal Champion.

In fact, the former UFC Champion joked about going to WrestleMania and costing Lesnar the title if that's what it takes. "I may go cost him his title over there, so he can hurry up and get to the UFC," Cormier joked. That only seems fair after Lesnar jumped into the octagon after Cormier's win over Stipe Miocic at UFC 226 last year.
Cormier doing business with WWE isn't entirely out of the question. There has been a lot of talk recently that DC will make the jump from UFC to pro wrestling once he's done fighting. Not as a wrestler, but as an announcer on SmackDown Live once the show moves to Fox. Cormier is also good friends with Seth Rollins, so it would make sense to see him at WrestleMania cheering on The Architect when he battles The Beast for a number of reasons.
