Ever since Daniel Cormier transitioned into MMA he’s had a lot of hype tied to him, but after the decorated wrestler took out “Bigfoot” Silva in 2011, things¬†really kicked off…

The heavyweights fought in 2011, in what were the semifinals of Strikeforce’s heavyweight grand-prix. Cormier went on to win the tourney by decisioning Josh Barnett, and yadda, yadda, yadda, “DC” is now the UFC’s light-heavyweight champ.

You can watch the memorable Cormier-Silva bout below, which the UFC has posted in advance of the champ’s October 3rd bout with Alexander Gustafsson.

Silva, meanwhile, is coming off a stoppage win over Soa Palelei earlier this month.
