Strikefore Results: Daniel Cormier dominates Jeff MonsonPosted on June 18, 2011, 09:54 PM by Anton Gurevich
Daniel Cormier continued his impressive run in Strikeforce with a dominant performance against the veteran Jeff "The Snowman" Monson. Cormier won all three rounds, on his way to a 30-27 Unanimous Decision victory.
Cormier's biggest strength coming to this fight was without a doubt his wrestling. But the American Kickboxing Academy product decided to choose a slightly different gameplan by standing with Jeff Monson during all three rounds. Monson had a very hard time matching Cormier's speed, and was forced to stop punches mostly with his face. The Snowman got wobbled by Cormier on numerous occasions, but still managed to stay in the fight, eventually bringing it to the judges’ scorecards.
In the end, Cormier wins without landing a single takedown in this fight. The Olympian is now 8-0 in his MMA career, and definitely looks as one of the brightest stars on the Heavyweight horizon. Daniel Cormier vs. Chad Griggs makes sense.
