Daniel Cormier: I Want To Wrestle Seth Rollins And Kevin Owens


Current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier spoke with FightFul about his upcoming title defense against Anthony Johnson at UFC 210 this Saturday night. Here are the highlights.

On who he would like to wrestle in WWE:

“Go fight Kevin Owens. That would be cool. I like KO, man. I’d like to go put some work in with KO—a hard-hitting match. I may get to punch him a couple times and he might be durable enough to not fold over. If the UFC would let me, I’d do a one-off, yeah,” Cormier said. “I think Seth Rollins is the best worker, and he’s my friend.

On if WWE is competing with the UFC:

“I don’t know if there’s necessarily competition because, WWE, they’ve changed their business model. They’re not in the pay-per-view business anymore,” Cormier said. “That network’s killing it, though. I heard they’ve got about a million and a half subscribers, though.”
