Former UFC Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier spoke with BT Sports for a new interview.
A clip from that interview was posted on BT Sports’ Twitter account where he talked about wanting to do something with WWE.
He revealed that he almost appeared at the press conference to hype the match between WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and Cain Velasquez, who Cormier is good friends with, at the Crown Jewel pay-per-view event in October.
“I’ve talked to WWE on a number of occasions, they want to work together. I almost came to the press conference for Brock vs. Cain to play a role of a fight builder but unfortunately, my schedule didn’t work. I had an offer to work the new WWE Backstage show on FOX. Obviously, it didn’t work with the new relationship with ESPN. We are constantly trying to find ways to get me involved in the product.”
He added that as a big fan of WWE, nothing makes him happier.
