Cormier goes on to discuss what could be next after this fight.
“You know I always said that I was going to fight until I turned 40, which would have been March at a card March 2nd, but I couldn’t make that one, If I hold true to what I was saying then this would be the final one. I don’t anticipate fighting much past this. I just want to go out there and do my thing.”
