Cormier was asked about his forthcoming fight and for his thoughts about Seth Rollins and Brock Lesnar's WWE Universal Championship match at SummerSlam.
Seth Rollins defeated Lesnar for the second time this year and Cormier expressed that he feels Brock elevated Seth during that match. The UFC Heavyweight Champion said that Brock's matches are usually a mix of suplexes and F5's and that SummerSlam bout was one of Brock's best in the eyes of Cormier.
"I watched Brock at SummerSlam and he did the job clean for Seth Rollins. Brock really elevated Seth. That’s one of the best matches I’ve seen him do in a while. It’s usually suplex, suplex, suplex, then the F5 and the match is over. I thought Brock really did a good job of selling Seth’s offense and making it a good match. It was one of the better matches I’ve seen him put on in a while, I enjoyed it." Cormier expressed.
