Daniel Cormier continues to be an integral part of UFC both as a commentator and an analyst. Cormier also starred in a special series on UFC Fight Pass and could be looking at fulfilling similar roles for UFC going forward. Dana White stated that Cormier will continue to work for UFC.
“It does. I had such a good time with him. But he is such a great commentator too. So he will still be around. He will be with this company forever. It’s not like we are losing him and I will never see him again.”
While we might not get to see Daniel Cormier battle it out inside the octagon. rest assured we would be seeing the former dual Champion in the UFC either as a commentator or an analyst.
