UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier is preparing for the biggest fight of his life – figuratively and literally – as he gets ready to challenge Stipe Miocic for the heavyweight title at UFC 226 in July.
As big as that fight is, and as big as a third bout with Jon Jones would be, Cormier knows there is a bigger bout that has entered the realm of possibility: Brock Lesnar.
"I know that when I fight Jon Jones, I make a lot of money. I know that if I was to ever fight a Brock Lesnar, I'm gonna make even more money than I've ever made in my entire life," Cormier said in a scrum with reporters after the UFC on FOX 29 weigh-in. "And, ultimately, championships and money is why we do this."
Cormier is by no means looking past Miocic, which is the first stumbling block to Brock, and that's only IF Lesnar follows the rumors and returns to the Octagon.
