Now, I know the answer, I’m the new endorse !” said Cormier( 21 -1 ), who was the UFC’s No 2 heavyweight when he descent down to light-footed heavyweight in 2014 rather than challenge his best friend, heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez.” I am 39 years old and I’ve been second many times but today I have accomplished everything I ever wanted.
