Is there any better HW to learn that from than Cain?? A guy from a wrestling background himself. Good trade off right now, Cormier brings in olympic calibre wrestlers for Cain, Cain helps Cormier on his standup and everything non wrestling related in MMA.

Look for Cormier to do some big things in the future.

Also look for him in the UFC at some point.
Training his striking with the other guys like Josh Thompson, Mike Swick and Kyle at AKA can't hurt either...

IDK about seeing him in the UFC for a while.. he's got a gauntlet to run as it is right now and if SF pays him and gives him that open contract we may not see him leave alot of fighters really like that open option....
