Daniel Cormier has made it known that he wants a rematch with Stipe Miocic or he’ll just retire. Things haven’t changed on Stipe’s part.
Despite the unknown, DC thinks walking away on top is the right thing to close out his retirement.
“I believe I can [walk away],” Cormier told MMA Fighting. “It will be the hardest thing I’ll have to do but I believe I can and I think it will make everybody pretty happy in terms of my household, my wife and my kids. As much as they love watching me compete, the chance to see me go out on top would be a fairy tale. I believe I can.
“I’m probably one of the most competitive people you’ve ever met and that’s always going to tug at me. But I will have to put that focus to something else. I’ll have to work on my craft in front of the television in order to make up for that.”
