UFC Light Heavyweight champion and WWE enthusiast Daniel Cormier spoke with TSN in Canada to promote his upcoming fight at UFC 206. During the interview, Cormier compared Conor McGregor to WWE Hall of Famer Steve Austin.
“He brings more eyes,” Cormier said. “I think he’s the anti-hero. He is ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin from 2000. The guy that you’re kind of supposed to root against but you want to root for. Everything that he does, before would have gotten people to boo you, but they’ve taken to it. It’s something different than what they’re used to seeing that people love it. I think its fun.”
