• Roman Reigns Challenges Former UFC Heavyweight Champion

During a recent interview with Ariel Helwani, WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns said he can smash anyone in one-on-one competition, even retired UFC fighter Daniel Cormier (who is a former UFC Heavyweight & Light Heavyweight Champion).

Here’s what Reigns said:

“I like one-on-ones, to be honest. I’d smash anybody whether it’s Daniel Bryan one-on-one, Edge one-on-one, DC, I’ll smash him one-on-one. Get him from behind the table, get him back in the gym, maybe he could have a chance. I don’t know, it would be a short story.”

Cormier then responded the following to The Tribal Chief:

“Watch your mouth Roman Reigns! I’ll dance with the big dog!”

There have been talks about Cormier coming to WWE in the past, for either a match against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania (Lesnar vs. Cormier was teased at UFC 226, but didn’t happen) or for a commentary role.

Cormier currently does commentary at UFC events.
