Former heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar is now the front-runner to share the Octagon with Cormier for the final time, while "DC" is also open to the idea of a rematch with Stipe Miocic or the realisation of a trilogy with Jon Jones at 205lbs.
After the fight, Cormier was asked about his expected bout against Lesnar and told the champion to bring the Universal title with him so he can feel like a "WWE Superstar".
Cormier slapped a pair of championship belts over his shoulders and celebrated UFC history, before calling out the UFC legend-turned wrestler, Lesnar.
Cormier called out Lesnar for a blockbuster heavyweight bout.
Lesnar has been looming for months as a future opponent for Cormier, who has stated he plans to retire when he turns 40 in March 2019.
Cormier landed four takedowns and was rarely troubled as he made the first defence of the 265-pound title he won off Stipe Miocic earlier in the year. The 41-year-old will be eligible to face Cormier once his drug-related suspension ends in January 2019, setting up a potential superfight. "I get to look at this again", Cormier said.
After the fight, however, we learned the UFC champ-champ can be just like us average folks when it comes to making a mistake with your phone.
"Everything he did had unbelievable power", he said.
Lesnar, the professional wrestler and former UFC heavyweight champion, is still with WWE and left the promotion's controversial Crown Jewel event on Friday in Saudi Arabia as the Universal champion.
"What a guy Derrick Lewis is. So there's no surprises with me", Cormier said. "It was an honour to share the octagon with him". I come in here and try to do my thing. They would see seen and be like, 'I know you saw it.' And I was like, 'No I didn't.' But they were like, 'Dude, screengrab. "You've got to be one of the best in the world to even compete". He's doing his WWE stuff.
