Cormier On Gustafsson: He Made MMA Better

Alexander Gustafsson’s retirement from Mixed Martial Arts was a shock to many on Saturday, as the Swede would leave his gloves inside the Octagon following a loss to Anthony Smith at UFC Stockholm.

One person who spoke on Gustafsson’s loss was rival and current UFC heavyweight champion, Daniel Cormier.

Cormier, who beat Gustafsson by unanimous decision at UFC 192, praised the light heavyweight for helping to make the sport better.

 

“Alex, you will forever be one of the biggest players in my journey,” Cormier wrote on Instagram. “We’ve agreed, we have argued and bickered, but ultimately you made me better. You made the sport better. You are a warrior and will be truly missed!”

“I understand the motivation changes and for you it is now your family. I say now you’re starting to really live the good life. Congrats on a great career my man! You’re a hammer! See you around.”
