Cormier posted a lengthy message on his Instagram account Monday afternoon expressing his disappointment and apologizing to his fans, family and coaches for the loss.
“It’s been a couple of days and I can’t stress the disappointment,” Cormier, who fell to Miocic by fourth-round TKO in the UFC 241 main event in Anaheim, wrote. “I am so sorry to all I have let down. To my wife and kids I am so sorry you guys had to experience that, I never wanted y’all to see that and the hurt you guys showed breaks my heart every time I think about it. My coaches I am sorry, I appreciate the work and time you’ve spent with me. My fans, thank you guys for all the love and support you have guided me to all these amazing accomplishments.”
