Daniel Cormier says a UFC 252 win puts him in same sphere as Michael Jordan, Peyton Manning

  • Winning back heavyweight title from Stipe Miocic would rank him ‘with some of the greatest athletes that have ever competed across any sport,’ says Cormier
  • ‘When I win on Saturday, I will retire in that way,’ adds the former champ, who looks to ride off into sunset
