It was back to work at Fox Sports Studios for Daniel
Cormier, as the two-division champ returned to his gig at “UFC
Tonight ” on Wednesday.
However, it wasn’t just any average day, as Cormier received a
hero’s welcome upon walking in the doors at the Fox Sports studio.
The newly crowned UFC heavyweight champ was showered with cheers,
applause and confetti, and former NFL star Tony
Gonzalez and personalities Curt Menefee, Colin Cowherd and
Jason Whitlock were among those in attendance to greet “DC.”
Cormier captured heavyweight gold with a knockout of Stipe
Miocic 4:33 into the opening round of their headlining about at
UFC 226 on July 7. The American Kickboxing Academy product received
reception from his colleagues after vanquishing Anthony
Johnson to claiming the vacant light heavyweight strap at UFC
187 in May 2015.
The 39-year-old Cormier hopes to defend his light heavyweight crown
this year before setting up a blockbuster showdown with Brock
Lesnar for the heavyweight strap in early 2019. “DC” has said
that he plans to retire in March 2019 regardless of how the
remainder of his fighting career plays out.
