A fan asked Daniel Cormier how he’d fare against Anthony Joshua in a boxing match, and Cormier provided a very honest response.

The fantasy of pitting UFC fighters against professional boxers in the boxing ring seems to be the flavor of the month. Conor McGregor is obviously at the forefront with his never-ending quest to box Floyd Mayweather, but there’s also Jimi Manuwa wanting to fight David Haye, along with both Stipe Miocic and Junior dos Santos expressing interest in boxing current world #1 heavyweight Anthony Joshua.

UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier was asked on Twitter about how he would do against Joshua in a boxing match, and it’s safe to say that Cormier has a grip on reality and won’t be challenging boxers any time soon.

We can’t completely rule out Cormier’s chances against Joshua, who is coming off a dramatic TKO of Wladimir Klitschko. After all, DC is 2-0 against a knockout artist with the initials “AJ,” but I suppose the point falls apart on the grounds that you can’t win a boxing match by rear-naked choke.

Circling back to MMA, a sport where Cormier has proven to be one of the best in the world for years, he is expected to defend his belt in a rematch vs. Jon Jones at UFC 214 on July 29th.
