After losing to the current champion, DC published a text in a farewell tone. It was there that he thanked the fans, the organization and congratulated his rival for the victory in the fight that ended the trilogy between the two.
Thank you for the love and support. It was not what we wanted or expected, but that’s the way it is. Congratulations to Stipe Miocic for a fantastic fight. It was an honor and a pleasure to share in the Octagon with you for 50 minutes. Man we put on a show every time. For my team, I love them to death. You made many sacrifices. I hope it has made you proud ”, was what he began by saying Daniel, who will be remembered as one of the best in history.
After also thanking the family, Cormier he did not forget those who supported his work or UFC, where without a doubt he left his surname at the top of any statistic. “To all my fans, I love you. You motivated me to be better. To Dana White and the UFC, I loved all this time. Thank you for the opportunity. It was an amazing trip, huh? ”DC concluded. At 41 years old, Daniel leaves the sport with 26 fights in MMA. Former semi-complete and complete champion, he hangs up his gloves with a final record of 22-3 and 1 No Contest.
“I want him to retire, I’m not going to lie to you. I want him to retire anyway, but maybe not in these weeks. I just know how the system works and what makes sense. When Dana says, “I know I should retire and that guy shouldn’t retire,” I know she’s thinking about something happening. It is the correct decision, in my opinion, “said the DC coach at this time. UFC 252 will take place next Saturday, August 15 at UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“I loved every part of my career, but it’s better not anymore, if I kept trying my luck, eventually someone is going to hit me. I am 41 years old and I am having a baby. I faced everyone I could when I was starting out. Afterward, I fought all the people I wanted to face as a champion. I faced all of them. I got to face the best that UFC it already had, and I never thought to do what I already did, “DC communicated in an interview with Combate, before losing to Miocic.
