One of the brewing future matchups for UFC double-champ Daniel Cormier is a possible fight against former titleholder Brock Lesnar. The seeds of this pairing have been planted at UFC 226 last July, when the ex-WWE star stepped in the cage and engaged in a brief shoving match with Cormier.
Cormier says he was actually thrilled and giddy when that happened, calling it his very own “WrestleMania moment.” But should Lesnar choose to do the same at UFC 230 this weekend, “DC” promises a different outcome.
“I heard Brock Lesnar will be at the Garden for UFC 230,” Cormier said on Sirius XM’s Busted Open Radio. “If he tries to step in that cage again, I’m going to slap him in his face. I owe him one from last time.”

For now, Cormier will need to go through Derrick Lewis first, as they headline UFC 230 on Saturday. The event will be co-headlined by a middleweight fight between Chris Weidman and Jacare Souza.
