The official Instagram page of ESPN MMA has posted a recent photo and exposed Daniel Cormier‘s Fighter Of The Year candidates which he revealed during his conversation in his own show with Ariel Helwani.
While Cormier thinks that Khamzat Chimaev should be in that list, he also stated that Israel, Deiveson and Jan Blachowicz are stronger candidates for the Figher Of The Year debate.
Here is what DC told Ariel Helwani:
“I think at the end of the year, when we look at the Fighter of the Year candidates, it will be: Deiveson Figueiredo, Israel Adesanya, Jan Blachowicz and maybe like a Khamzat Chimaev.”
