Daniel Cormier has his eyes set on another belt. After dispatching Derrick Lewis, DC called our Brock Lesnar.
The two fights are slated to fight each other next. However, the new WWE Universal Champion is in an imposed USADA suspension through January 2019.
Lesnar became the new WWE Universal Champion on Friday after defeating Braun Strowman in Saudi Arabia. Yet, there’s already speculation that he may not fight again for the company until WrestleMania in April.
Cormier and Lesnar are expected to fight in January. DC also wants that WWE Universal Championship belt, as well.
“Brock Lesnar… when you come, bring that brand new WWE title, too,” Cormier said to Joe Rogan in the post-fight interview. “I feel like being a WWE Champion, too. Let’s go, let’s go Brock. Being that belt with you if you come to my house.”
Cormier defeated Derrick Lewis in the second-round at UFC 230 at Madison Square Garden in NYC. He ended the fight with a rear-naked child submission.
The 39-year-old Cormier has improved to 22-1-1 in his MMA career. He has 10 knockouts in his career with seven decisions. He also now has five submissions in his career.
Cormier won his first fight by rear-naked choke since April 8th, 2017. On that night at UFC 210, he defeated Anthony Johnson in the second-round by rear-naked choke.
The 41-year-old Lesnar is 5-3-1 in his MMA career. The Webster, South Dakota native — who now resides in Maryfield, Saskatchewan, Canada — has not fought in the Octagon since 2016.
Lesnar received the win initially, but it was later ruled a no-contest after he failed a drug test. His win over Mark Hunt at UFC 200 on July 9, 2016 was overturned by the Nevada Athletic Commission.
His previous two fights before the overturned decision were both losses. He lost to Cain Velasquez at UFC 121 on October 23rd, 2010 by TKO (Punches).
He also lost to Alistair Overeem at UFC 141 on December 30th, 2011. He lost his fight by TKO (Kick to the body and punches).
