    When the idea of a UFC heavyweight title title defense against Brock Lesnar was looming, many were wondering why champ Daniel Cormier was clear that it wouldn’t take place until the summer. For a man that was looking to get a few fights and happily retire, it didn’t make much sense.

    Later on, UFC president Dana White stated that DC was injured, but wouldn’t discuss the nature of the injury. Now, we have some answers.

    He would likely be higher in the discussion if he retired now rather than take a loss from Stipe and a third loss from Juicy J.
