Daniel Cormier to WWE?

08/19/2020

On August 15, 2020, Daniel Cormier fought his last competition in the UFC. He lasted for five rounds with Stipe Miocic. The unanimous decision favored to Miocic. Regardless of the outcome, Cormier made it known that he would retire after the match.

Cormier made his debut in the Octagon on May 20, 2012. He became the second fighter in UFC history to hold two-weight championships in the Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight. Only Connor McGregor became the first fighter to hold UFC titles in multiple divisions at the same time. Cormier's overall record is 22-3-0 (W-L-D).

Now that Cormier is retired from the Octagon, he has a desire to step into the WWE. The 41-year old is a devoted wrestling fan that has expressed interest in joining pro-wrestling. He went on Sports Illustrated to state that if he went to WWE, it would be like a vacation.

Should Cormier start a new career path to WWE, he would not be the first to do so. Here are a few WWE superstars (and former) that fought in MMA:

Dave Batista

Bam Bam Bigelow

Alberto Del Rio
