UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier said he would welcome a fight with Brock Lesnar because it would be a lucrative opportunity for him.

Per MMAFighting’s Shaun Al-Shatti, Cormier will fight heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic on July 7 to set up a potential clash with Lesnar, and the American is relishing that possibility.

Cormier said:

“That thing never happens unless I get past Stipe, but just hearing out loud was like, oh my goodness.

“Hey, 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 going to make even more money than I’ve ever made in [my] entire life. And ultimately, championships and money is why we do this. I don’t care for all the other stuff. I want to get paid.

“I’m almost 40, the door’s about to close on me, so why not ride out into the sunset with a massive payday? Truckloads of money. Back up Brinks truck to Gilroy, California, if you fight Brock Lesnar, I’m telling you.”
