Daniel Cormier could end up in WWE after his MMA career is over.
During today’s media scrum to hype his upcoming fight at UFC 230, Cormier told reporters that he postponed his WWE commentary tryout in Orlando so he could train for his fight against Derrick Lewis. The fight is scheduled for November 3, 2018, at Madison Square Garden so I would presume that more news will get out after the fight.
Cormier is a hardcore WWE fan and has attended many WWE events. He is also a great talker and seems like he would be a great fit on the commentary team.
Cormier says the tryout will take place after his fight.
Daniel Cormier just said he postponed a WWE commentary tryout in Orlando to train for UFC 230. But he’ll do it after the fight. It’s something he wants to do and he’s excited about.

Cormier is tentatively scheduled to face Brock Lesnar sometime in early 2019 but the fight contract has yet to be signed. Cormier said recently that he would also like to fight Jon Jones. If he ends up fighting Jones then the fight with Lesnar is unlikely o happen because Cormier has said that he plans on retiring before he turns 40 in March.
