Daniel Cormier may have exchanged verbal shots with Alexander Gustafsson in recent years, but following the latter’s retirement this weekend, “DC” praised his former rival.

After Gustafsson was submitted by Anthony Smith at UFC Stockholm this past Saturday, the Swedish star announced he’s hanging up the gloves. Since then, the former light-heavyweight champ and reigning heavyweight champ, Cormier, posted the statement below.

Cormier faced Gustafsson in 2015, and narrowly got by the longtime contender via a split decision.
