Daniel Cormier intends to end his career after fighting UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar.
After knocking out Stipe Miocic at the UFC 226 and winning the title of heavyweight champion, in front of Daniel Cormier, many doors opened to several very interesting fights. One of them will be a fight with Brock Lesnar, but after this fight that Cormier plans to end his career. "DC" made it clear, that he would only compete until March next year before he retired. This does not mean, however, that the fight against Lesnar will be the only battle he will fight. "DC" is also considering a fight to defend the title of light heavyweight before he will face Brock Lesnar. Several other fighters are demanding a fight for a light heavyweight belt with Daniel Cormier. The first candidate who talks a lot and loud about this fight is Alexander Gustafsson, who even demands a duel for the belt. The next competitors are Yoel Romero, and Ilir Latifi, and even Anthony Smith, who expressed their interest in the fight against Cormier. In turn, DC pointed his candidate for a potential fight for the belt and is the former champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua. "Shogun" will meet with Smith on July 22 at Countdown for UFC Hamburg - SUN. JUL. 22, 2018 - UFC Fight Night: Volkan vs. Shogun.
The trilogy with the biggest rival of Daniel Cormier, a duel with former champion Jon Jones, is still a big unknown. Much is said about this fight, which is treated as a fight that must take place. The only question is, will there be enough time for all these fights?
