One of the greatest fighters of all time, Daniel “Dc” Cormier has officially announced his retirement from the sport.
“I feel like I’m closing the door shut on this thing,” he said. “I got a text message yesterday from [my assistant] asking me if I’m getting out of the USADA testing pool, and I told her yeah, I just haven’t told them yet. I feel when you do that, you’re pretty certain of your decision. …
“Yeah, it’s over. And I’m not sad about it. I’m going to miss it, I’m going to miss the training camps, I’m going to miss the fights, there’s nothing like a fight week, but you have to understand when it’s your time. I feel it’s time.”
Well there you have it straight from the former double champ himself. If i were to put a percentage on Cormier coming back to fight again? I would say about 25-30%. If he had beaten Miocic a couple weeks ago, then i think that number would be 50-55%. But, most of the great champions in the sport have lost their last fight, its so so so rare to go out on top in this sport.
Here is the full interview from yesterday.
His career accomplishments are endless. One of the true great performers of all time. He will not be forgotten, and he will have a GREAT post fight career with media. Such a phenomenal human being.
Thank you DC! One of the greatest champions the sport will ever see.
