Daniel Cormier's potential knee surgery has become more of a reality, but the light-heavyweight fighter is still uncertain about opting to go under the knife.
Cormier had recently mentioned that he had seriously injured his LCL ahead of the match-up against Henderson, and had actually considered withdrawing from the fight. While he had also mentioned that his ACL was troubling him, MRI results seem to find more issue with his LCL.
Now, MMAFighting.com's Ariel Helwani reported on Wednesday's edition of UFC Tonight that 'DC' had recently got an MRI done on the injured knee, and that results showed a significant tear in his LCL, as well as his anterior cruciate ligament, which is 50 percent missing.
It is unclear whether the AKA product will opt for surgery after these results. He was informed by doctors that the choice was up to him, as he could either have the surgery or continue competing in his current condition.
