The preliminaries got bloody at UFC 238 in Chicago, Illinois.

In an exciting affair that saw up-and-comer Alexa Grasso defeat former strawweight title challenger Karolina Kowalkiewicz via unanimous decision win UFC heavyweight champion, Daniel Cormier was hit with a drop of blood from the fight while doing commentary for the card.

Cormier shared proof of his claims on Twitter, where he also claimed some blood to sprinkle over his notes, as well.

Currently on a three-fight winning streak after his No Contest 2017 bout against Jon Jones, Daniel Cormier (20-1-1 NC) defeated the likes of Volkan Oezdemir, Stipe Miocic and most recently, in November 2018, Derrick Lewis. The 40-year-old’s last and sole defeat happened in January 2015, when ‘DC’ dropped an unanimous decision to the aforementioned Jones.

Now, Daniel Cormier is expected to defend the heavyweight title against former champion Stipe Miocic at UFC 241, on August 17, in Anaheim, California.
