Strikeforce Results: Daniel Cormier Has a Chance at Being UFC Heavyweight Champ
Daniel Cormier's expeditious climb up the heavyweight ranks has been the stuff of legend.
Less than a year ago, Cormier was a relative unknown stepping up to fight Jeff Monson. Fast forward a couple of fights later, the American Kickboxing Academy prospect now towers over most of the division.
It was a bout that served as Cormier's coming out party as an upper-echelon heavyweight contender and legitimate threat to the UFC title.
With the Grand Prix finale likely serving as Strikeforce's swan song of the heavyweight division, a deal coming together between Cormier and the UFC appears imminent.
How would the former Olympian fare against the upper-echelon sharks in the UFC?
At 33 years of age, Cormier still hasn't reached his full potential as a fighter. It's astounding to see the strides he continues to make in his striking with every outing.
Against Barnett, Cormier showed improved footwork and great head movement. A world-class striking game to go along with arguably the best wrestling in the entire division poses a dangerous matchup for every heavyweight on the UFC roster.
With only 10 professional bouts under his belt, Cormier is learning on the fly against world-class opposition.
"DC" is a name fans better get used to hearing.
Thanks to the Strikeforce Grand Prix, the heavyweight division may have found its new star.
