Daniel Cormier Says Pat Cummins Will Learn Not to Make Fights Personal
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 02.20.2014

Daniel Cormier recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight with Pat Cummins at UFC 170 and more. Check out the highlights:

On the ups and downs of his week: "It goes up and down, and it's shaky and rough; you're reaching for the oxygen mask and strapping in your kids. It's been nuts."

On not being likely to get a title shot out of this fight: "I think it moves back now because I'm not fighting Rashad. If I was fighting Rashad and I was able to win that fight, I'd be very close to fighting for the championship. Whereas now, I think a win over Patrick doesn't move me any closer."

On Cummins: "If I lose to him – there's no reason to lose this fight. I can't lose this fight. If I win, all it does is it allows me to get down to 205, show everyone that I can make this weight and compete the way I'm used to competing, and show me that I can compete at the level that I'm used to competing at, and start to chase that belt."

On Cummins crossing the line in media interviews: "Why would you do that? I understand you're trying to make yourself real. I get it. But you knew what I was going through at this time. You understood my situation. You saw me sitting with a sports psychologist every day. Those are things that should have stayed in the room, among the people that were there to experience it."

On the fight being personal now: "[Cummins] will learn, and in his next UFC fight, he may win because he's a good competitor. He may go beat somebody down the line, and he'll learn on Saturday night that building a fight is different than making a fight personal."
