Andrew Richardson-USA Today Sports

Daniel Cormier is set to face Rashad Evans at UFC 171 in a fight which is shaping up to be one of the most important bouts in recent light heavyweight division history. The winner of this fight could very well be fighting for a title, which is currently being held by Jon Jones.

Cormier is one of the best wrestlers in MMA right now, having been an Olympic wrestler and winning for his country. He is so confident with his wrestling that he doesn’t think Evans can take him down once in their fight. In a recent interview, Cormier said the following:

“I’m not going to be taken down. I spent a lifetime developing that skill and I’m not getting taken down.”

Cormier has a lot of confidence in his wrestling as he should because on paper, he’s one of the best. He’s dominated fighters like Josh Barnett, Roy Nelson and Frank Mir with his wrestling, so it’s going to be interesting to see him battle Evans, who has been considered to be one of the best MMA wrestlers in the division.

If Cormier can dominate Evans and get a victory, he’s more than likely next in line for a title shot, which is something he has been training for and dreaming of for four years now.

Dana White Doesn’t Think Conor McGregor Can Beat Rafael dos Anjos

Things are getting interesting ahead of UFC 196. The headlining fight at that March 5 pay-per-view event will see UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor move up to lightweight to face the champion of that division Rafael dos Anjos. If McGregor succeeds he will become the first UFC fighter to hold belts in two different divisions simultaneously. The oddsmakers have McGregor as the favorite ahead of the fight. UFC president Dana White doesn’t necessarily hold the same opinion.

Ronda Rousey’s Mom Predicted Holly Holm Would Knock Her Out

Dr. AnnMaria De Mars is the first woman ever to win a gold medal at the World Judo Championship doing so in 1984. She is also the mother of former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. Further she may be the most vocal critic of Rousey’s coach Edmond Tarverdyan. Appearing on Submission Radio De Mars once again spoke out on Tarverdyan commenting on Rousey’s loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193. “I predicted it in advance Ronda trained with an idiot and a fraud” said De Mars.
