Daniel Cormier Joins Fuel TV Broadcast Team for UFC 155 Pre and Post Fight Coverage


Daniel Cormier StrikeforceThere’s a new player in the commentary game for UFC broadcasts and his name is Daniel Cormier.

Widely regarded as not only one of the top heavyweights in the sport, but Cormier is well known throughout the MMA community as one of the most well spoken and articulate fighters in the sport when it comes to breaking down a fight, and understanding MMA.

Well now Cormier is putting his wrestling singlet away for a few days as he heads to Las Vegas to step into the broadcast team for the UFC on Fuel’s coverage of UFC 155.

“The UFC, I’m starting my TV stuff for them. I’ll be doing the weigh-ins and the post show for UFC 155, so a lot of positive things are happening right now,” Cormier revealed when speaking to MMAWeekly Radio over the weekend.

Cormier is currently slated to fight Jan. 12 in his final fight for Strikeforce against Dion Staring, and then he will shift to the UFC as soon as that bout is over.

The former Olympian is currently ranked as the No. 3 heavyweight in the world, and will likely jump right into the deep end of the division once he moves into the Octagon.

UFC 155 will serve as special interest to Cormier beyond his broadcast duties, because he’s also there to coach and help his teammate Cain Velasquez in his effort to become UFC heavyweight champion.

Velasquez faces Junior Dos Santos in the main event of UFC 155, and Cormier will actually be in his corner during the fight, but back in the commentary booth with the rest of the UFC broadcast team during the Fuel TV weigh-ins and post show.

“I’m cornering Cain (Velasquez) for his fight, as I always do,” said Cormier. “I’m doing stuff for Fuel, the post fight show, and the weigh-ins.”

Look for Cormier to join the UFC on Fuel broadcasts leading up to the fights on Dec. 28 for the weigh-ins and then again on Dec. 29 as part of the post show after UFC 155 is concluded.
