Daniel Cormier Reveals Bold Brock Lesnar Claim

The former two-division UFC champion Daniel Cormier recently revealed what the Olympic gold medalist Gable Steveson should do after his successful outing in the Tokyo Olympics.



Steveson won gold in the men’s freestyle wrestling competition after defeating three-time and reigning World Champion Geno Petriashvili in the final. Apart from winning the gold medal, Steveson is the reigning Pan American Continental champion, and was a three-time age-group World Champion. He became the first American heavyweight to win freestyle Olympic gold since 1992. John Cena Getting New SummerSlam Opponent?

Daniel Cormier suggests Gable Steveson to take Brock Lesnar approach

Speaking during a recent episode of DC & RC, the former six-time US World or Olympic Team Member suggested that if he was in Steveson’s shoes, he would step foot into the world of sports entertainment and follow the same career path as crossover sensation Brock Lesnar.

He said:

“If I’m Gable Steveson, I’m going to the WWE first. I’m taking the Brock Lesnar approach. I’m going there, I’m building my name, because the WWE wants him just as much as the UFC. I’m going to the WWE first.”

Cormier added that Steveson, whom “DC” knows well, can develop to the point where he can be main eventing UFC events as soon as he arrives on MMA’s biggest stage. He added:

“I’m (Steveson) getting built into a monster over there. And then, I’m coming to the UFC where immediately I’m at the top of the cards, and immediately I’m getting pay-per-view money, immediately I am the man, and I bring that fanbase with me. It’s right out there for Gable. He’s a tremendous athlete. I love the kid. We talk on the phone; we play video games. He’s a tremendous kid.”

Steveson had previously expressed his desire to join WWE as well as UFC down the road.
