Daniel Cormier’s last big payday has been put down like an eight point buck that Brock shot with a crossbow. Should we feel bad for him? Maybe. DC is an admirable man who has been through more than one lifetime’s worth of tragedy, but hanging your financial future on a man who shares no allegiance to anyone but himself is a fool’s errand.
As for Brock, I’m reluctant to do a long form career retrospective right away, this retirement announcement feels premature. However I made this drawing not long ago as tribute to Lesnar, who at UFC 100 gave one of the greatest post fight interviews, and strangest metaphors for a beatdown you’ll ever hear.
Take care of yourself, enjoy the fights, and I’ll talk to you next week. Chris.
