U.S. Olympic wrestling team captain Daniel Cormier announces move to MMA

Yet another high-profile amateur wrestler is heading to the world of mixed martial arts.

Daniel Cormier, a two-time Olympian and the U.S. squad's 2008 Olympic team captain, was a two-time JUCO national champion and NCAA Division I runner-up at Oklahoma State University in 2001.

Cormier, who will train with other collegiate-wrestling champions such as Jon Fitch and Josh Koscheck at American Kickboxing Academy, is expected to compete in the light-heavyweight division upon his MMA debut.
While many fighters compete in relative obscurity early in their careers, Cormier is likely to follow in the footsteps of former amateur wrestling champions such as Ben Askren and "King" Mo Lawal and garner immediate attention.

 I dont know. Cormier is far from the first dude I see making this transition. He needs money, its enough reason to at least give it a shot. He reminds me mentally of Kerr a bit. We will see how he can take a punch. I wish him the best.
