Daniel Cormier: I am a fighter (VIDEO)


Last week, we brought you Josh Barnett's tale of "I am a fighter," so it's only fair to bring you his opponent's. Daniel Cormier shares his path to fighting here:

Cormier's path to MMA has been far from easy. After not competing in the Olympics because of a kidney problem after making weight, he stepped away from competition. MMA gave him a place to enjoy competition again. Since his first bout in Sept. of 2009, Cormier has put together an 8-0 record, including a memorable knockout of Antonio Silva.

Does Cormier have what it takes to beat Barnett and win Strikeforce's heavyweight grand prix? Tell us in the comments, on Facebook and Twitter.
