Daniel Cormier “DC” defended his title three times over Alexander Gustafsson, Anthony Johnson, and Volkan Oezdemir. Furthermore, he shocked the world by beating the former UFC Heavyweight Champion, Stipe Miocic by a knockout in the first round.

Therefore, “DC” became one of the seven UFC fighters to hold two titles at the same time. The other fighters are Randy Couture, BJ Penn, Conor McGregor, Georges St-Pierre, Amanda Nunes, and Henry Cejudo.

By many “DC” is the greatest UFC double champion of all time. To go up one division and beat a naturally bigger guy who is actually the best MMA contender of the time, is almost impossible.

No matter how much he had to fight against the odds, Cormier has beaten everyone who was put in front of him. He holds an incredible record of 1 loss and 22 wins, 10 by knockout and 5 by submission.

Furthermore, Cormier is the former XMMA, KOTC, and Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion as well. In addition, he won a bronze medal at Freestyle World Wrestling Championships 2007 in 96 kg division.

Daniel Cormier: ‘I believe he is not good enough to beat me’

Cormier made it look so easy to beat a contender like Stipe Miocic in their first match. He believes that Miocic is just a good fighter and not a serious challenge to him. 

“I think he’s a good champion, a good fighter. And I understand that he’s going to be better this time. But when I think about the fight and a little bit of time we fought before, I just don’t think he’s good enough to beat me” Cormier told MMA Junkie.

“I anticipate being a better version of myself. In the fight last year, there were many days where I was lumbering into practice, barely able to stand tall and now I’m walking around straight, I feel good daily. Every day I feel better. I feel physically better so I’d imagine that would lead to even better results,” he added.
