This past weekend. Daniel Cormier successfully defended his UFC Light Heavyweight Championship, against Anthony Johnson in a rematch from 2015. Cormier has been fighting nonstop from unknown to known.
Starting in 2009. Cormier has defeated the very best. Names from Dan Henderson to Anderson Silva to Anthony Johnson. Currently holding a record of twenty-one and one, he has only lost to Jon Jones. People may say he doesn’t look tough but when an opponent steps in the octagon with Cormier. They are nowhere near ready for the unstoppable beast.
After losing to Jones. A match between Ryan Bader, but after Jones was stripped of the Light Heavyweight Championship. Cormier was pulled out and replaced Jones against Anthony Johnson, at UFC 187. defeating him by rear neck choke in the third round to win his first Light Heavyweight Championship.
Defending against Alexander Gustafsson, Anderson Silva who filled in for a suspended Jon Jones and recently a rematch between Anthony Johnson. Cormier won all three and retired Anthony Johnson to not only retain, but prove that he is the face of the light heavyweights for a reason.
Cormier still has many doubters to prove wrong. From fans to reporters, but the fact that he can go in, beat down his opponents and win the Light Heavyweight Championship is just the start of a reaction change from those naysayers to fans of the unstoppable beast, Daniel Cormier.
