By FCF Staff
Due to the coronavirus, there’s a lot of uncertainty regarding the UFC’s upcoming schedule. But, recently Daniel Cormier hinted that he and welterweight champ Kamaru Usman could be fighting on the same card next.
Cormier, who recently turned 41, has repeatedly said that he plans to fight one more time, against Miocic in a rubber match. Recently the former light-heavyweight and heavyweight champ appeared with Usman during an Instragram, live chat, and Cormier said this (quote via MMA Junkie):
“I think the way things are falling, you and I may be spending more time together than most people,” Cormier said to Usman. “Obviously we can’t say a day and time yet, but it’s looking like you and I shall, and will, be spending a party together.”
In addition, the decorated wrestler also had this to say, while discussing plans for his next bout.
“I know we’re in a crazy time right with the world and the way things are, and it’s very up in the air,” Cormier said. “But I think for me with the way things are going and the discussions we had heading into all this, the way that the discussions and the terms of the fight was going, man, where I am going to fight this guy, for my last fight, it’s going to be as ideal for me as I could’ve ever hoped for. It’s going to be beautiful.”
Usman, meanwhile, is expected to face Jorge Masvidal in his next, title defense. The welterweight champ is coming off a stoppage win over Colby Covington in December.
Cormier, meanwhile, hasn’t fought since last August when he was stopped by Miocic. In their first encounter, in 2018, Cormier won via first round, knockout.
