"Luckily I was able to recover, and I feel better," Cormier said,
"The first week and a half, [the eye] was really bad, it wasn't opening, and it was completely blurry, but now it kind of feels like an eyelash is in it."
"I went and saw the doctor last week, and he told me I'm probably not going to have to have surgery, just kind of rest and recover. And today it feels good, but just feels like something in there, you know when you get an eyelash and can't get it out? It's just right in the corner."
It's great news, considering how bad it looked at the time.
As for his fighting future, Cormier insists he's done competing -- and will now focus on growing his career outside the Octagon.
"Yeah, it's over. And I'm not sad about it," Cormier said.
"I'm going to miss it, I'm going to miss the training camps, I'm going to miss the fights, there's nothing like a fight week, but you have to understand when it's your time. I feel it's time."
