Daniel Cormier believes that he’s likely finishing his MMA career with his bout against Stipe Miocic at UFC 242. Cormier spoke with TMZ for a new interview and discussed his fight with Miocic, what he expects from his opponent and more. Some highlights are below:

On expecting Miocic to be at a new level for the bout: “I truly believe (Miocic) is going to be a better version of himself. I don’t think for a second that he’s going to make the same mistakes he did last time. I think it’ll be a much more difficult fight.”

On his fight with Miocic likely being his last: “I always said that I was gonna fight [until I was 40] which would have been March. I couldn’t make that one, so if I hold true to what I was saying, then this would be the final one. I don’t anticipate fighting much past this.”
