Daniel Cormier Says He Nearly Threw His UFC Title Belts Away

Current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier recently appeared on The MMA Hour and revealed that after his loss to Jon "Bones" Jones at UFC 214, he was so upset with himself that he almost threw away his UFC replica championship belts at home:

“I was pissed off, man,” Cormier said. “I just couldn’t believe that that happened. You don’t understand me, you know? It’s like this thing, I guess it’s like a wrestling thing, you get so mad, you don’t think about the the emotion and reaction, and then you regret it later. I would have regretted throwing those away. My wife wouldn’t let me.

“I had a fight party last week to watch Luke and ‘Canelo' fights and I have this movie room in my house,” Cormier said. “I have a whole bunch of pictures and fight stuff and memories and stuff of my fights and all my championships. And when everyone came over, they saw my Strikeforce title, and King of the Cage, and XMMA and they were like ‘hey, where are your UFC championships?’

“I still haven’t put those back up,” Cormier said. “I tried to throw them away but my wife wouldn’t let me. So I just put them away in my closet. I’m still not at the point now where I can take all these belts out and face them every day.”
