Daniel Cormier does not like the tattoo of Marlon Vera
Former Champion and retired UFC fighter Daniel Cormier disliked Marlon Vera’s latest tattoos. The retired fighter gave his take on tattoo culture on his Youtube Channel.
Cormier said, “I tap out, man. That s*** looks terrible. I don’t understand why these dudes are putting tattoos on the head. There’s the problem. I have got some tattoos. I’ve got some tattoos on my arms, I’ve got some tattoos on my leg, on my back.”
