Daniel Cormier Partially Tore ACL – Unsure of Surgery
Ariel Helwani tweeted earlier that Daniel Cormier suffered a partially torn ACL prior to his fight with Dan Henderson. MRI results show that Cormier (15-0) tore 50% of his anterior cruciate ligament, as well as a significant tear of his lateral cruciate ligament.
Cormier’s physician told Cormier that surgery would be up to him. Cormier has yet to make a decision, although that will be made more clear soon since Cormier is next in line to fight the winner of Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson, who will have their rematch September 27.
