UFC champ Daniel Cormier compares himself to Roman Reigns

During the UFC 210 post-fight press conference last night, UFC Light Heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier compared himself to WWE’s Roman Reigns when it comes to crowd reactions.

When Cormier was asked about getting booed by the crowd, the champion did not mind and said as long as the crowd isn’t indifferent, it’s fine. “So as long as you’re booing, I’m fine, it bounces off of me,” Cormier said.

“I was telling a story earlier about how I was watching WWE WrestleMania last weekend and I said wow, it would be great if Roman Reigns pins The Undertaker, clean. It’s how the old school guys do business,” Cormier explained during his press conference. “And Monday night Reigns walked out to the ring and they booed him for 10 minutes, they did not allow him to talk. It was the most organic crowd that they’ve had in a very long time. He said ’This is my yard’ and he left. It was perfect.”

Cormier said that that’s pretty much him in the UFC and that is his Octagon, stealing off a page from Reigns’ script. Cormier is a huge WWE fan and has attended quite a few WrestleManias.
