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.”
