Sweet Pre-Strikeforce Daniel Cormier Video Roundup


(Video via MMA Fighting)

Tonight is Strikeforce’s final event and one of its featured fighters (for all intents and purposes) heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier risks losing his momentum by fighting some dude before moving on to the UFC. To get you inside Cormier’s final days of preparation as well as his competitive mind set, we are bringing you MMA Fighting‘s great video documentary short on him.

In the doc (above), Cormier gets philosophical on topics ranging from success to deodorant and shares the story of his first day at the AKA gym. Teaser – He was fat as hell. Its also interesting to get a glimpse at just how much he admires and respects his friend and training partner, UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez.

As a bonus, below is Cormier’s final collegiate wrestling match. It was against Cael Sanderson in the finals of the 2001 NCAA Championships. Cormier would lose but Sanderson was far from a nobody. In fact, Sanderson would go on to become perhaps the most accomplished college wrestler in history, earning four national titles and setting the record for most consecutive wins with 158-0. That match, from FloWrestling, after the jump.

I'm English so you can understand my naivety when it comes to wrestling. But why did Cormier have to keep resetting into the "bitch" position in the center of the ring, in the second video? Does not understand.

CP, I'll be your resident video guy if you pay me 36k a year and help out with the traveling expenses. You'll never need MMAfighting again!
