  • Im excited to see Cormier fight. OSU has such great wrestlers and with him training at AKA you know he is getting some of the best coaching possible. These powerhouse wrestling schools are sure putting out a ton of MMA fighters lately.

  • Cant wait to finally see Cormier fight. All of the info 5oz has been giving us on him I feel like I know the guy already. Hope he is able to pull out a W and make a career out of this.
