Former champ champ Daniel Cormier plans to retire after a trilogy fight with UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic this summer, but the SAR-CoV-2 global pandemic could potentially upend that, too.
“I don’t think it’s shifted too much,” said Cormier to Stephie Haynes, as transcribed by Lewis Mckeever for BE. “I think that we were looking at the summer, late summer, anyways. I think by late summer we should be getting back rolling as a country, as an organization. It affects the ability to go into the gym right now as I would be, but I don’t know the effects of that with some of these other things.”
"This thing starts going to late fall, getting into the winter, there’s no way. I’d be done. Yeah, I think it needs to happen by the summer.”
