In three days Daniel Cormier makes his long-awaited light-heavyweight debut in UFC 170's co-headliner. Ten months ago, he made his highly anticipated UFC debut as a heavyweight.
Check out that April 2013 bout, where Cormier took on former champion Frank Mir in UFC on FOX 7's co-headliner.
The fight was a stiff test for the Olympian and undefeated fighter, who emerged as the unlikely winner of the Strikeforce world heavyweight grand prix. However, Cormier proved his impressive Strikeforce run – which included victories over vets such as Antonio Silva and Josh Barnett – was no fluke.
Check out the subsequent fight with Mir in the video above.
