Following his impressive performance at UFC 200, Daniel Cormier believes Brock Lesnar should be WWE champion
Saturday night we were treated to UFC 200, an event that showcased a lot from the world of mixed martial arts, including the return of Brock Lesnar to the octagon following a five-year hiatus. Lesnar went in there against a top-10 heavyweight in Mark Hunt, and not only did he emerge victorious by decision, he looked dominant while doing so despite the long layoff from the sport.
After the win, speculation turned to how Lesnar will now be perceived at his other job, that being a WWE superstar. With such an impressive win in his return, some believe that he should be booked more dominant than ever now, and one of those people happens to be someone else who was victorious on Saturday night — UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier.
The question started out about Brock’s SummerSlam opponent in Randy Orton, but Cormier, a noted professional wrestling fan, took things a step further by proclaiming that Lesnar should be the WWE champion once again immediately, a title that’s currently held by his WrestleMania 32 opponent, Dean Ambrose.
Really, Cormier is not at all wrong to fantasy book something of that nature. Lesnar wasn’t in that octagon with a scrub on Saturday night, he was in there with one of the hardest punching heavyweights the sport has to offer and he came away with the win.
Cormier faced one of the greatest of all-time on Saturday night at UFC 200 in Anderson Silva and also came away with a decision win after three rounds.
