UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier has had issues with press conference stages before.
On Thursday, Cormier appeared to trip as he tried to exit the pre-fight press conference, hitting the floor hard. “DC” eventually was able to make his way to the back and later returned to face off against his opponent Saturday night, heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic.
