WWE is bringing in former UFC Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight Champion to be the referee for the Fight Pit Match between Seth Rollins and Matt Riddle at Saturday’s Extreme Rules event.

Speaking with ESPN, Cormier was asked about potentially doing a match with Brock Lesnar in WWE as Cormier is a big WWE fan.

"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.' It seems to make a lot of sense. 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."

Cormier and Lesnar have a history with one another, having a brief confrontation in the octagon at UFC 226 following Cormier's KO victory over Stipe Miocic. The UFC was planning a fight between them in August 2019, but the fight didn’t happen.

"We laid the foundation, but we did not get the payoff,” Cormier stated about confrontation for the planned fight. “It was a slow build. The build was far too slow. Yeah. It was like a year build with no WrestleMania match.”
