What’s the first think a guy from Louisiana does when he finds out his big UFC fight has fallen through at the last minute? He seeks sympathy in the throws of Popeyes Chicken of course. That’s exactly what Daniel Cormier did when he found out that Rashad Evans had to pull out of their UFC 170 bout and the fight would be cancelled.
Cormier, at the UFC 170 open workouts on Thursday, talked about his breakdown and breaking his diet when his fight with Evans fell through. Then he had to rebound when he found out that Patrick Cummins had stepped up to the plate to keep Cormier’s 205-pound debut on this weekend’s UFC 170 fight card.
