Check out the video highlights as Daniel Cormier beat Roy Nelson in the co-main event at UFC 166.

Cormier (13-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC) picked up a sweep of the judges’ scorecards against Nelson (19-9 MMA, 6-5 UFC) in what will be his final fight at heavyweight. Cormier now will focus on the light heavyweight division, where he hopes to eventually earn a shot at the title, currently held by Jon Jones – a fighter Cormier has had a longstanding beef with.

The bout took place at Houston’s Toyota Center and aired on pay-per-view.
