Midnight Mania! Daniel Cormier’s before-after video reveals dramatic weight loss ahead of UFC 252


Welcome to Midnight Mania!

By all accounts, Daniel Cormier is working extremely hard to regain his heavyweight title against Stipe Miocic on Saturday night (August 15, 2020) at UFC 252 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The former two-time champion has spoken on several occasions about his commitment and intensity to prove that he is the best man, and we are only days away from this competition.

Also by all accounts – including his! – Cormier loves to eat. After all, he’s the man who earned the sponsorship of Carl’s Jr. after complaining that Derrick Lewis had stolen his Popeye’s opportunity. Because of these questionable eating habits, it’s not uncommon for the 5’11 ” heavyweight to gain weight during the offseason.

In fact, that was the case after his loss to Miocic. Cormier posted the following video earlier today, giving a little behind-the-scenes information about his fitness.

“Little preview of my trip from April to today,” Cormier wrote. “I was on this big boy diet, but today I feel ready to go. It was tough but we got back in shape and ready to fight.

Granted, we didn’t get side-by-side body comparisons, but the difference is clear. Cormier didn’t look healthy in the April flashback, let alone ready to fight for five rounds. Fast forward to modern times, and “DC” looks as fit as it ever was as a heavyweight.

For a high-level analysis, look at Cormier’s teammate Khabib Nurmagomedov, who simply replied to the message: “My big friend.”
