Strikeforce Results: Daniel Cormier knocks out Antonio SilvaPosted on September 10, 2011, 11:57 PM by Anton Gurevich
Daniel Cormier made a bold statement for the Strikeforce Heavyweight GP crown with a vicious knockout victory over Antonio "Bigfoot" Siva.
Cormier approached the fight with a lot of patience, not rushing in into exchange with a much bigger Antonio Silva. But Cormier's patience immediately paid off; AKA product unleashed a powerful right hand that sent Antonio Silva down to the canvas. The Brazilian was able to survive the attack, but it was only a matter of time before Cormier gets his go again.
Silva went on offensive, looking to repeat the turn of events in a fight with Mike Kyle, but Daniel Cormier responded with a perfect striking combination that slayed down the giant out cold. Daniel Cormier is not Mike Kyle, and despite what so many people say - he's also not Roy Nelson. Daniel Cormier is a future Heavyweight Champion.
Daniel Cormier is the first man to ever KO/TKO Antonio Silva (Bigfoot wasn't really finished by Eric Pele), and will now face Josh Barnett in the final. Cormier is now 9-0 in his Mixed Martial Arts campaign. Unbeaten, and ready for the biggest fight of his great career.
