Before his first title fight, an undefeated Daniel Cormier took on the most decorated active fighter in MMA today, Dan Henderson. The former two-weight Pride world champion needed a win badly at UFC 173, but Cormier simply wanted it more. The fight earned ‘DC’ his ill-fated championship match against Jon Jones at UFC 182, which then led to his submission victory against Anthony Johnson for the vacated strap.
Now scheduled to take on Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 192, Cormier will hope to edge his name on to the pound-for-pound list with his first title defense.
