    As many know, Daniel Cormier is an Olympic wrestler. He lost in the semifinals of the 2004 Athens games to one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, Khadzhimurat Gatsalov. (Gatsalov went on to win gold)



    Watching UFC: Bad Blood now, and what do I see? Cormier training with the man who beat him in the Olympics in preparation for Jones.

    That's the definition of humility, and one of many reasons why I want to see the belt around Cormier's waist.

    i want to see cormier win also, however if he can't pressure and get jones down, i think jones will pick him apart and finish him. Who can pressure will be huge in this fight

    Bringing in one of the best wrestlers of a generation in to train with you is humility? It seems pretty smart to have that kind of talent around.

    Also there are rumors that Gatsalov might be making the transition to MMA.

    To be fair, for a high level wrestler like that, AKA is a fantastic place to train.

    Yeah but with his resume what gym wouldn't want Gatsalov around? He's the most decorated active wrestler in the world.

    How many of those grown man have been in brawls in those press conferences?

    I'm not defending his actions by any means, but it's really not that bad of a thing when you think about all the bad things people do.

    His wrestling should be insanely on point for this fight. Hopefully his striking is as well.

    You're right, but AKA has a pretty proven track record. DC, Cain, Khabib. Can you really name better MMA wrestlers right now? Outside of GSP, I don't think there are any.
