Daniel Cormier opens up on his absence

In a post on Twitter, Cormier stated that the reason behind his withdrawal from UFC Fight Night 197 was the amount of time he had spent away from his family. He revealed that he wanted to take some time off and spend some time with his loved ones.

Cormier was featured on several cards consistently and was eyeing to take a short hiatus. He also admitted that the talk about playing favorites while calling fights was only banter and jokes.

Cormier wrote the following on Twitter:

“Guys, I didn’t get removed from calling (Max Holloway’s) fight. It was a joke. I called Abu Dhabi and called New York. Was away from my family for 13 days. Needed some time home with my family. Will be watching for sure. Just got off phone with Max! Tune in early tomorrow.”
