Daniel Cormier Has Had Early Conversations With WWE


Daniel Cormier is no longer a pro-MMA fighter as he retired from the sport last month following his third fight with Stipe Miocic at UFC 252. 

The former UFC Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight Champion confirmed to Sports Illustrated that he’s had talks with WWE. He also mentioned that he would like to be brought in as a commentator at first. 

“We’ve been talking. We’ve spoken to some of the people over there in very, very early conversations. WWE is a company I’ve watched and loved my entire life.

Put me at the commentary table. Let me call the matches for six months and tell you how great these wrestlers are in the ring. I would love that, and I wouldn’t be faking it. WWE is something I’ve loved my entire life.

Then, after those six months, what if I’m sitting next to Michael Cole, and Roman comes over and smacks the microphone out of my hand? But I’m an announcer. Will I hit him back? Then you’re asking if this will happen or not.”
