Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Daniel Cormier vs. Alexander Gustafsson Delayed Due to Injury Because Of Course It Is

Not too long ago, Dana White took American Top Team to task for their “stone age” ways of doing things, which he blamed for then-heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez‘s series of ongoing injuries suffered during training. And despite the fact that AKA actually ranked rather low on the list of injury rates among major fight camps, there was no denying that their historically brutal sparring sessions were playing a major role in their fighters frequent injuries.

Enter newly-crowned light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier, or should I say, exit Daniel Cormier. From his title fight against Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 191. Because he’s injured. Daniel Cormier trains at AKA.

That was a long walk, but I regret nothing.

Details after the jump

Yes, according to MMAJunkie, Cormier will not face against Lusty Gusty in September as originally planned due to an apparent knee injury suffered in training. As a result of this “slight delay,” Cormier is being tentatively-scheduled to return in October, although UFC officials have yet to confirm or even speculate as to where or when exactly the fight will transpire.

Injured before he can even make his first title defense. Daniel, you’ll fit in just fine around here. Juuuuuust fine.
