Daniel Cormier has undergone PRP therapy and believes he’ll be cleared to fight Anthony Johnson this coming spring.
Cormier made the decision to do the treatment to speed-up his recovery time. He was forced off UFC 205 and a planned light heavyweight title defense earlier this month after suffering the injury.
“I went back to the doctor, got some more therapy done, PRP, as I’m trying to really speed up the process,” Cormier said (thanks to MMAjunkie for the quotes). “I’ve got to get back into the Octagon. I want to fight. I want to fight Anthony Johnson. He deserves the opportunity, so I’m trying my best to get healthy.
“Hopefully, it happens very soon, and we fight this spring.”
Cormier won the vacant belt with a submission victory over Johnson last year. He has defended it once since, besting Alexander Gustafsson.
