UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier has seen himself appear across pro wrestling’s media recently after he made some disparaging comments against The Young Bucks.
Cormier, who is a huge fan of professional wrestling has revealed that he would love to enter the 2018 Royal Rumble if given then chance. The UFC star recently spoke to Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso and stated that “I wish I could be in the Royal Rumble this year, don’t think they will invite me, but fighting against Oezdemir in Boston works for me, timewise. My fight is in January, which opens up WrestleMania for me this New Orleans–not to compete, but to go.” Cormier will be defending his UFC title in Boston at UFC 220 against Volkan Oezdemir.
The Light Heavyweight Champion also had some interesting comments to make with regards to one of WWE’s top stars, Roman Reigns; “Roman is the number-one star in the company right now, and I enjoy his work, A lot of people boo him because they think he’s pushed too hard, but WWE is smart. Now they’ve spun it–they’ve stuck Roman back with The Shield, and now people cheer him again. They’ll find a way to make him the good guy, and I believe that he will get the championship back in New Orleans, but not from Brock Lesnar. I think Braun Strowman will be carrying the belt by then.”
