HILARIOUS: Daniel Cormier Misses Golf Ball by a Foot

Published 02/05/2021, 4:30 AM EST


Former two-division UFC champion, Daniel Cormier, is certainly enjoying his life post-retirement. Cormier currently works as an analyst for ESPN and the UFC. He has started making his mark in the world of media as of late, after establishing himself as one of the greatest fighters ever to grace the Octagon. And he seems to be doing pretty good in his media obligations.

But, one thing he is certainly not an expert on is the sport of golf. Recent footage from ESPN’s Brett Okamoto of ‘DC’ playing golf certainly proves that.

Cormier completely miscued his shot as he missed the ball almost by a foot, much to Okamoto’s delight. He even asked Okamoto, not to show that shot. But clearly, Brett had his plans.

“Don’t show that. Too much f**king pressure,” said DC. Ironically enough, he was feeling pressure while golfing with friends after competing against killers his whole life in one-on-one combat. But, that only shows how much Cormier cares about perfection and his level of dedication in life.

It is evident though that ‘DC‘ needs some help in his golfing skills.

Daniel Cormier will commentate in this weekend’s UFC Fight Night

As the UFC returns after a week’s hiatus, Cormier will be back behind the desk this weekend. A blockbuster clash in his former division is set to headline the UFC Fight Night card. ‘The Demolition Man‘ Alistair Overeem will fight against a fellow heavyweight, Alexander Volkov.

Overeem is looking for one final run at the UFC heavyweight championship-an honor that has eluded him in his illustrious professional career. His Russian counterpart ‘Drago’ will have other plans and will look to add to his 6-2 record in the promotion.
