Kvällssvepet: Se en förvirrad Daniel Cormier sekunderna efter brutala förlusten
Efter den brutala knockouten syntes en bestört Cormier förvirrad – något som påvisades i intervjun med Joe Rogan direkt efter matchen, vilket ledde till att UFC-kommentatorn bad om ursäkt till Cormier efter galan.
UFC-presidenten Dana White förklarar situationen under presskonferensen efter galan:
”He was telling me that the fight was stopped prematurely, and he was freaking out on the referee (Big John McCarthy). The reality is that Cormier was out of it, and didn’t really know what had happened until he saw it on the replay,” säger White.
”He was saying it was stopped prematurely, but it could’ve been stopped four or five punches sooner than it was. So i was just trying to get him to calm down and relax. And then he kept saying ‘Why is Dana Yelling at me’, and then when he saw it on the replay, that was when he found out that he had gotten knocked out,” säger White.

First off, thank you all for the kind words. I have felt the support. Congratulations to Jon Jones and his team. They did a phenomenal job and got the victory. Also, to Big John McCarthy, I would like to apologize for acting up with you. I am thankful for the time you gave me to try and defend myself and stay in the fight. You are the best in the business for a reason. I also wanna thank my team and my coaches. I love you all from the bottom of my heart. Your time and energy is greatly appreciated. You guys did a wonderful job, I was ready. It's a fist fight and things happen. Dana White and the @ufc, thank you for being the premiere organization in all of MMA. Again, congrats to Team Jones and JacksonWink. Love you all. I'll see you soon. DC 📷@layziethesavage
Joe Rogan ber om ursäkt för intervjun med Cormier direkt efter matchen.
My apologies to D.C. And to everyone else upset at me for interviewing him after the fight. In all honestly I was kind of in shock and I don't think I realized what I was doing until I had a mic in my hand and I was talking to him. I've said that I don't want to interview fighters after they've been KO'ed and then I did it to someone that I care a great deal about. It was 100% my fuck up and no one pressured me to do it. I posted a series of tweets about it on twitter but I know some of you folks only use instagram or Facebook so I thought the right thing to do is post it here as well. I was beating myself up about it all night, and whenever something like that happens it's always my sincere intention to apologize and express my honest feelings. It'll never happen again.
Flera hyllningar till den forne mästaren.
You won't see any DC memes or GIFs from me. If he retired right now, he'd still be the 2nd best Light Heavy of All Time.
