“I hear I’m not fighting on Wednesday and I’m all sad. The only thing that can make a Louisiana boy feel better is Popeyes. It was bad, it was horrible. I had four pieces of chicken and cajun rice, it was so good. I was laying on the ground I felt so bad because I hadn’t eaten anything like that in so long, how could it taste so good and be so bad. I was like oh, my stomach’s killing me, but I feel so good. I didn’t want to waste that training camp. I spent a lot of time away from my family when I’m training to, so I really didn’t want to waste that, but then the question of, what next? Do I take two weeks off and then prepare for another eight-week camp? Can my body hold up to another eight week camp? There were a lot of questions I didn’t have the answer to, so I said, you know what, I want to just compete now.”

While addressing the media in Las Vegas this week, UFC 170 co-headliner, Daniel Cormier, discussed the bucket of chicken that almost cost him his UFC 170 slot this weekend against Pat Cummins.

Popeye’s is pretty good and hard to resist though, right?
