UFC witnessed another scare ahead of UFC 226 as Light Heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier tripped and fell after the UFC 226 Press conference.
The incident happened just seconds after the press conference was wrapped up. Cormier apparently tripped on the speaker near his seat and was helped by Dana White and the UFC officials after the fall. He was seen limping off the stage after the fall. You can see the video below.
Cormier is set to make his return to the Heavyweight division this weekend at UFC 226. He will fight Stipe Miocic for the UFC Heavyweight championship. UFC 226 has already suffered a major blow when Max Holloway was forced to pull out of the pay-per-view.
Holloway was set to fight Brian Ortega in a Featherweight championship fight. The fight between Derrick Lewis and Francis Ngannou will now serve as the co-main event for the show.
