No Holds Barred: Daniel Cormier, MMA Marathon Man 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Daniel Cormier, the 2007 world bronze medalist and two-time U.S. Olympian in freestyle wrestling, who is 4-0 with three knockouts and one submission victory as a heavyweight mixed martial arts fighter.

In a schedule reminiscent of the early days of boxing, he has scored victories in fights on July 31 and August 13, and will fight again this coming Saturday, August 21.

On July 31, Daniel flew to Australia to score a first-round TKO over Lucas Browne, and capture the XMMA heavyweight title. Two weeks later, on August 13, in Mescalero, New Mexico, he defeated Tony Johnson with a first-round rear naked choke submission to win the King of the Cage heavyweight title. And on August 21, he will face Jason Riley (9-3) at the Strikeforce show at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

We spoke with Daniel Cormier Monday about this marathon schedule and all these fights. He is signed to fight for Strikeforce, and we discussed his plans to work his way up to a title shot in their very talented heavyweight division. He explained just how developed he thinks he is as a mixed martial arts fighter, and when he believes he will be ready for a title fight. As a world-class wrestler, and arguably the best wrestler currently fighting in mixed martial arts, he also discussed what techniques he needs to improve to become a world-class mixed martial arts fighter, and much more.
