Daniel Cormier is on top of the UFC world right now, and there's only one huge fight he wants before riding off into the sunset this year.

Ever since their confrontation at UFC 226 in July 2018, the world has been expecting the return of Brock Lesnar to try and take the Heavyweight title off DC, but as of yet that hasn't occurred.

It seems as though right now Lesnar is comfortable with his WWE schedule and the money he makes from it, or else he would probably be preparing to take on Cormier right now considering he supposedly has a passion for Mixed Martial Arts.

With retirement expected later this year, or 2020 at the latest, Cormier has been trying his hand at commentating in the last few years, and revealed a few months ago that he was invited for a tryout at announcing with WWE but had to postpone that due to his fight with Derrick Lewis at UFC 230.

In a clip posted to social media by journalist Ariel Helwani, Cormier was talking to ESPN's Sports Center following UFC's show in Nashville last night, and when asked on the next defence of his title, there was only one man he wants to face and he even hinted at a WWE appearance in the process.

“I don’t have a fight exactly scheduled yet but I’ve got my eyes on Brock Lesnar,” said Cormier.

“I may go to WWE’s Wrestlemania and I may go cost him his title over there so he can hurry up and get to the UFC so I can beat him here.”

We all know WWE love cross-promotional angles, and Ronda Rousey's appearance at WrestleMania 31, which planted the seeds for her feud with The Authority some three years later, was well-received and given approval from Dana White.

Brock Lesnar and Daniel Cormier are widely expected to compete against each other in UFC in the near future

Even Conor McGregor has hinted at pairing up with Becky Lynch in the future in a WWE environment, and surely Cormier will get a huge reaction should he make an appearance at Metlife Stadium.

His statement could be foreshadowing an actual appearance to build up hype for the event, which takes place two weeks from today on April 7.

And with Cormier being good friends with none-other than Lesnar's WrestleMania opponent Seth Rollins, wouldn't it be fitting if he was the one to cost Brock his Universal Championship.
