Rumors have been spreading that former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar may make another run inside the octagon. Catching wind of the news, UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier has been voicing his interest in facing the former title holder in the heavyweight class.
Speaking to media, as seen within the video below, Cormier let his thoughts on the matter be known.
“That thing never happens unless I get past Stipe, but just hearing out loud was like, oh my goodness. Hey, I know that when I fight Jon Jones, I make a lot of money. I know that if I was to ever fight a Brock Lesnar, I’m going to make even more money than I’ve ever made in entire life. And ultimately, championships and money is why we do this. I don’t care for all the other stuff. I want to get paid. I’m almost 40, the door’s about to close on me, so why not ride out into the sunset with a massive payday? Truckloads of money. Back up Brinks truck to Gilroy, California if you fight Brock Lesnar, I’m telling you.
“He told me last time, right? When that thing broke that he was fighting at UFC 200, I said, ‘Big Brock, is it Christmas morning in the Cormier household?’ He goes, ‘Merry Christmas, DC. You’re welcome.’ That’s what he told me. He knows that the money’s coming. When he’s on your card or if you’re fighting against him, he knows that you’re getting paid.”
