Video of the Day - Cormier v. Johnson

Here is Daniel Cormier fighting Tony Johnson for the King of the Cage heavyweight title on 8/13/10 in Mescalero, New Mexico. King of the Cage airs live on HDNet. Cormier was on the 2004 and 2008 USA Olympic teams and was an NCAA wrestling runner-up with Oklahoma State in 2001.

Cormier (17-1, 6-1 UFC) next fights at UFC 200 defending the LHW title against Jon Jones (22-1, 16-1 UFC) who was stripped of said title after his most recent brush with the law. Cormier lost a decision to Jones at UFC 182.

The fight starts at the 8:45 mark. At 10:00 you will see Cormier use an attempted Johnson takedown into one of his own. After that you can see the elite body positioning and grappling that Cormier possesses.
