Not even the mighty “Conan Curse” could keep Daniel Cormier from his destiny.
The reigning UFC light heavyweight champion returned to late night television on Tuesday — with the heavyweight strap in tow — to celebrate his big win over Stipe Miocic in the UFC 226 pay-per-view (PPV) main event last weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada (watch it again here).
There was some concern beforehand that his pre-fight visit to the Conan O’Brien show would result in defeat. After all, the “Conan Curse” has claimed the likes of Ronda Rousey and Conor McGregor, just to name a few.
“When I got to the back, the UFC PR came over and they said, ‘Great job, things are gonna get crazy.’ I said, ‘Nothing’s crazier than the fact that I just won this fight, even though I went to Conan.”
With Conan out of the way, I guess that just leaves us with the Frank Mir curse?
