UFC heavyweight contender Daniel Cormier says though Frank Mir showed heart and determination during their UFC on FOX 7 fight, the three-time UFC heavyweight champion still isn't as tough a challenge as fighting Josh Barnett. "DC" explains, inside.
Should undefeated heavyweight Daniel Cormier decide to make the drop down to the UFC's light heavyweight division, it could result in an immediate title shot for the former Olympian, according to promotion president Dana White.
According to Daniel Cormier, fighting Frank Mir at UFC on Fox 7 in his Octagon debut this weekend isn't a step up in MMA competition when having already defeated Heavyweight standouts such as Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva and Josh Barnett, among others.
Should Josh Barnett prove victorious against Nandor Guelmino this Saturday night (Jan. 12, 2013), his chances of earning a spot on the UFC's roster will increase as "The Warmaster" looks for his chance to "wreck shop" against the best in the world.
From the thrilling main event between two combatants pushing the legal limit of what people in society are allowed to do to one another to the abysmal judging, there was much to love and hate at Saturday's UFC 155.
Josh Barnett is confident he and his Strikeforce heavyweight colleague, Daniel Cormier, can just walk right into the UFC's Octagon and win a world title. Both he and "DC" are expected to join the ranks of UFC in 2013.
During a recent interview, Josh Koscheck claimed that the UFC may have asked him to use Twitter to try and stir things up with B.J. Penn, in an attempt to possibly lure "The Prodigy" out of retirement for one last fight. MMAmania.com has the story!
