UFCThe Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is a U.S.-based mixed martial arts organization, recognized as the largest MMA promotion in the world. The UFC is headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada and is owned and operated by Zuffa, LLC. This promotion is responsible for solidifying the sport's postion in the history-books.
UFC is currently undergoing a remarkable surge in popularity, along with greater mainstream media coverage. UFC programming can now be seen on FOX, FX, and FUEL TV in the United States, as well as in 35 other countries worldwide.
Josh Koscheck just sad the other night on MMA Uncensored that he thinks Cain and Cormier will end up fighting each other. He said that they haven't know each other along time and just train together, it's not like thier best friends or anything... I'm guessing since he knows them..He knows whats up
Stop me if you've heard this one before, but two guys who train together at American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) don't want to fight each other.
To that end, I guess we can count Cain Velasquez as one of the few mixed martial arts (MMA) fans who are glad Daniel Cormier still has another fight left under the Strikeforce banner.
That's because the former UFC heavyweight champion, who battles Brazilian "Bigfoot" Antonio Silva at UFC 146 this Saturday night (May 26, 2012) in Las Vegas, Nevada, tells MMA Fighting "DC" is his coach and despite their potential "collision course," there's "no point" to making them fight.
"I train with him every day, we spar three times a week, so I know what he has and I know how much better he's gotten just over a couple of months. He's still new to this sport and he's always getting better. We won't take [a fight against each other]. There's no point. We're training partners, he's my coach. How's that gonna be if I fight my coach? If it's for the title, we'll talk about it when that time comes, but we're just fighting other guys right now. We're not gonna fight each other."
Cormier emerged a serious title contender after stopping "Bigfoot" late last year. He went on to prove his performance was no fluke by dominating Josh Barnett earlier this month and capturing the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix title in San Jose.
Are these two on an eventual collision course? Or will Silva throw a wrench in those plans this weekend in "Sin City?"
Also I remember watching an interview of Cormier about a year ago saying that he would rather cut to 205 and challenge Bones than fight Cain for his title. I've said this like a thousand times lately, i don't know how people haven't seen it yet!
