Daniel Cormier Reveals He's In "Very Early" Talks With WWE

He recently retired from UFC...

Following UFC 252, Daniel Cormier announced he was retiring from MMA. 

The former UFC Heavyweight Champion has previously held talks with WWE and speculation immediately began about Cormier possibly jumping to professional wrestling. 

DC sat down for an interview with Justin Barrasso at Sports Illustrated recently and he revealed he has had "very, very early conversations" with WWE. He noted he wouldn't like to enter the squared circle straight away, though, and would prefer a stint on commentary. 

Cormier said: "We've been talking. We've spoken to some of the people over there in very, very early conversations. WWE is a company I've watched and loved my entire life."

"Put me at the commentary table. Let me call the matches for six months and tell you how great these wrestlers are in the ring. I would love that, and I wouldn't be faking it. WWE is something I've loved my entire life.

"Then, after those six months, what if I'm sitting next to Michael Cole, and Roman comes over and smacks the microphone out of my hand? But I'm an announcer. Will I hit him back? Then you're asking if this will happen or not. That's what I want, that slow build, the type of story you want to see, and your heart feels like it's going to explode while you're waiting for it. Give me the slow build, let it simmer."
