Cormier: Evans can't take me down


Both Rashad Evans and Daniel Cormier come from a wrestling background and in pure wrestling Cormier has the better credentials. Of course they are fighting MMA, but Cormier still believes Evans will be unable to take him down:

"I'm not going to be taken down," Cormier said. "I spent a lifetime developing that skill and I'm not getting taken down. When I look at a fight against another wrestler, this is how I approach it. In the sport that we all chose, I got to the top. People don't just quit wrestling. You stop because you hit the end of the road, whereas I just continued to go.

"So in the sport I chose, Rashad chose, Jon Jones chose, and the rest of those guys chose, I went to the top of that sport," Cormier continued. "So no, I'm not getting taken down."

It's going to be weird to see Rashad's guard. Cormier is going to bully Rashad all night. He's a different level of athlete and competitor. Rashad is too chinny to stand and trade. That's the reason for his fight against Lil Nog, he struggles knowing a guy can put him to sleep.

Koscheck and Hendrix could have wrestled internationally, but they chose MMA, Hendrix coach is the most decorated International Wrestler the United States has ever seen to date. One of GSP's training partners was Gia Sisourri, you can't find to many people better than that. Anyone is capable of being taken down, I have caught international wrestlers sleeping (in practice) and have taken them down. A friend of mine who is my level (which is no where near World Class) threw Olympian Kevin Brackin for 3 points at the NYAC Christmas Tournament, Brackin then tech fell him 13 to 3, but my point is anyone who is human is capable of making a mistake, thus it is possible for a world Class Wrestler to be taken down by a non world class wrestler.
