Daniel Cormier Demolished Dan Henderson on 1.5 legs, almost literally.

Think about that for a minute…

Last night on UFC Tonight, we learned that top UFC light-heavyweight contender, Daniel Cormier has been gallivanting around two-divisions with a severely damaged knee. To top it off, he may opt out of surgery.

The AKA fighter underwent an MRI last week and doctors recently informed him that 50-percent of his anterior cruciate ligament is missing and a significant tear to his lateral collateral ligament is also present in the right knee.

Cormier’s medical team said if the pain isn’t too much of a factor that surgery is optional.
