Dana White On When He Expects Daniel Cormier To Retire
Daniel Cormier initially said he wanted to retire by the time he turned 40, but Father Time, and Dana White don’t adhere to someone else’s plans. Cormier’s last fight against Derrick Lewis did not last long, and Cormier wanted to fight Lesnar in March this year. However, it’s safe to say that the fight with Lesnar is still some way away.
And the UFC President doesn’t see Daniel Cormier retiring any time soon.
“I don’t think he’s on a timeline, DC’s hurt,” White told MMA Junkie after the UFC 234 pre-fight press conference. “He was talking about retirement, you know me, I’m the first guy to say when somebody needs to retire. That guy doesn’t need to retire, he’s the man. I think he’s probably got three fights left in him.
“In a perfect world, which we know this isn’t a perfect world, I think you see Brock [Lesnar], I think you see Stipe [Miocic], and hopefully Jon Jones. And those are his three [and] he’ll go out with a bang, man. Then he’ll probably retire.”
