Daily Debate results: Will Daniel Cormier stick to his retirement timeline?

The date was set by Daniel Cormier at the beginning of the year, which he has since repeated on numerous occasions: March 20, 2019, his 40th birthday.

According to the UFC champ-champ, that’s the end of the road. He will retire from MMA by that date.

And so, in the wake of his history-making win over Derrick Lewis at UFC 230, it would seem Cormier has just one fight left in him: a big-money fight against Brock Lesnar, with a preferred date of March 2 to headline UFC 235 in Las Vegas. No trilogy with Jon Jones, just Lesnar. And that will be it.

Or will it?

That was our latest Daily Debate question: Do you think Cormier will fight beyond his self-imposed retirement date?

The results (via Twitter):

A slight majority believes Cormier fights on – maybe for Jones? Time will tell.
