The UFC chief also had high praise for Cormier’s move to the heavyweight division.

“He’s such a unique guy in every way, shape and form. He’s so articulate. He’s a really smart guy. I love the way, when he’s commentating, how he can break down a fight and explain it to you. It’s almost like (Joe) Rogan. He’s so good. He’s great at interviewing people. Then you talk about him as a fighter, right? He definitely doesn’t look like a fighter. Looks out of shape, looks heavy. When you think about him going in there now with a heavyweight, if you notice in the beginning of the fight, every shot he landed on Stipe was busting Stipe up. Both his eyes, his nose,” he added.

Cormier had a showdown with Brock Lesnar after the UFC 226 Main event and they are likely to lock horns going forward.
