Former UFC heavyweight and light-heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier took advantage of this weekend’s events to meet one of his heroes.

As shown in the below tweet, posted by MMA journalist Ariel Helwani, Cormier – in Jacksonville to provide broadcast commentary for UFC 249 – got to spend some time with wrestling legend and current AEW manager Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts with All Elite also currently operating out of the Florida city due to COVID-19.

Cormier is well-known to be a huge wrestling fan, and has been linked with a crossover to the squared circle many times in the past.

Who knows? Maybe the evil charm of Roberts will convince the prizefighter to join his efforts to take down Cody Rhodes…
