Daniel Cormier is set to defend the UFC’s light-heavyweight title against Alexander Gustafsson on October 3rd, and in advance of the bout, the promotion’s posted one of his most memorable wins to date.
As the headline relays, the fight is Cormier’s choke out victory over Dan Henderson, which went down in May, 2014. Heading into the bout, most people thought that the decorated wrestler would be too much for “Hendo”, but not everyone predicted that “DC” would dominate the legend in the way that he did.
The impressive win earned Cormier a title fight with then champ, Jon Jones, this past January. Jones won the bout via UD, but following the latter’s arrest, Cormier submitted Anthony Johnson in May to become champ.
