Daniel Cormier: An overview
The former Olympian has been in the upper echelon of MMA ever since he transitioned to the sport. Coming from a high-level wrestling background helped Cormier focus his efforts towards the art of striking. Moreover, he reached the pinnacle of success in MMA by integrating a laundry list of skills and techniques together.
As a UFC fighter, he captured two titles simultaneously in the organization, being one of only four fighters to do so. Furthermore, he won the Strike Force Heavyweight Grand Prix when he stepped in for Alistair Overeem. Cormier’s trilogy fights with undisputed champion Stipe Miocic will go down as perhaps the most memorable in divisional history.

UFC President Dana White and fans look forward to seeing Daniel remain within the MMA sphere with his career as an analyst and commentator. He has certainly left his mark on the sport and is one of the most beloved fighters.
