Daniel Cormier is inarguably one of the greatest mixed martial artist to ever step foot inside the octagon. A seasoned wrestler, and a veteran of the sport, Cormier’s achievements inside the octagon are unparalleled in the light-heavyweight and heavyweight division. He is the only fighter in the history of MMA to have defended the championship belt in both the ight heavyweight and heavyweight division, while simultaneously holding the gold.

Cormier is one of the four fighters in the history of UFC, to hold championship belts across two division simultaneously, and the only one alongside Henry Cejudo to successfully defend both the belts. He is also a NCAA Division 1 champion, and a former Olympic athlete who represented United States of America in the 2008 Olympics.
