Daniel Cormier has addressed reports that suggest he could be set to share the WWE ring with Brock Lesnar.

Cormier, a devoted fan of professional wrestling for his entire life, made his debut this week on a WWE program. Days after it was reported that he would officiate the event between Seth Rollins and former UFC fighter Matt Riddle at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view this weekend in Philadelphia, he gave a video promo on Raw.

After Lesnar defeated “DC” in the Octagon to capture the heavyweight belt at UFC 226 in 2018, speculation of another comeback increased. Despite a push that seemed to create the basis for a future fight, it never happened since Lesnar once more announced his intention to retire from mixed martial arts.

“This is honestly very good for me because people start to talk,” Daniel Cormier said. “People start talking going, ‘Oh my goodness, I remember when him and Brock were in the octagon (and) supposed to fight.’ So, it seems to make a lot of sense, but as you know, just because something makes sense, doesn’t mean it’s going to happen. So no, there is no talk of me fighting Brock Lesnar.” (h/t Sportskeeda MMA)
