Daniel Cormier is hoping to break the Conan curse after appearing on the late night talk show
Daniel Cormier was a guest on the Conan show on TBS last night and he looked pretty comfortable. He may have looked comfortable but he is well aware of the dreaded Conan curse. Ronda Rousey sat in that chair before she lost to Amanda Nunes. Conor McGregor sat in the chair and was bested by Nate Diaz. Nate sat there and lost the rematch to Conor McGregor. Long story short, it’s not a good idea to visit Conan prior to a big fight.
Conan said that despite his long reach, he’s no threat to Daniel Cormier. Cormier laughed and replied, “Conan, I don’t know if I’ve ever felt safer.” Good stuff, Mr. Cormier.
They also talked about his fight with Jon Jones and nerves before a fight. They spoke about what it feels like to win a big fight as well. It was a fun appearance and Cormier was a solid guest.
Daniel Cormier will meet Stipe Miocic in a super fight for the UFC Heavyweight championship on July 7th in Las Vegas. The card is stacked and in the co-main event, Max Holloway will meet Brian Ortega for the Featherweight championship. UFC 226 is the centerpiece of International Fight Week.
