Daniel Cormier recently revealed through social media that his stepfather Percy Benoit has passed away after losing a battle with cancer. With several photos of him, DC has considered him ‘the bravest, strongest, hardest working and most caring person I’ve ever known.’

While he has yet not decided his future after his loss to Stipe Miocic at UFC 241, the death of his father has put his career in difficult.

”Today I lost my hero to cancer,” Cormier wrote. “My father was the bravest, strongest, hardest working and most caring person I’ve ever known. Always the life of the party and made everyone he ever came in contact with feel good.”
