Daniel Cormier

While Jon Jones deals with his battle on the drug front, his last opponent Daniel Cormier is dealing with another kind of battle.

The battle of handling your first professional defeat.

And while Jon Jones has occupied most our thoughts, including D.C.’s, it’s not the drugs haunting Cormier today. It’s the loss.

D.C. tells

“It doesn’t make me feel better to have lost against a guy who was doing drugs… I don’t really know (If he would have taken the fight knowing of Jon’s drug problem). Again, this stuff is all so fresh, I really don’t know. I’m just kind of taking – there’s no thought or anything. I don’t really put much thought into it. I’m still kind of thinking about the fight.”

“It’s lay down in bed and think about the fight over, and over and over again,” he said. “It eats at me. I see everything he does; I see all of his social media jabs at me and everything. And I welcome them, and I will use them as motivation to rebuild myself.

“I’m very aware, but very disappointed, in the fact that I didn’t accomplish this goal.”
