In defense of Daniel Courmier
First of all, he's the wrestling coach of the heavyweight champion of the world. Last I checked, that's a full time job. He has the credentials. Two time Olympian (second time CAPTAIN of the US wrestling team.) His resume SCREAMS 'elite wrestling coach'.
In his free time, he happens to be a top five heavyweight. But (see paragraph above) no future there. But it's good to have a have a hobby, so ... the like heavyweight champ is only on an all-time winning streak.
Look promising .....
The only guy in the history of mma who could imagine where Courmier is at is Pat Miletich. Or Hickson Gracie.
Ask yourself. If you woke up in the morning, looked in themirror ans thought, "the best figher on the PLANET is a wrestler, and I'm his wrestling coach.", aren't you feeling just a little of that 'hell yeah' shit?
That said ...... make him fight Gustafson in Sweden.
Why the hell not? You wanna fight for a belt, but you won't fight your boy? Okaaaaaaaaaaaaaay.....
Fight the big white kid with the super fast hands. In HIS house. Win, you get a shot at the belt.
THAT f*ckin' PPV will sell.
