Just over two years ago, Daniel Cormier was at a Strikeforce event just soaking it all in and getting ready to make his debut. Now he’s in the finals of the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix.
How did Cormier make it here in such a short amount of time?
Well, according to the former two time Olympian it all came down to hard work and determination and he showed that by beating Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva on Saturday night in Cincinnati.
While his hand it hurting after the fight, Cormier is hoping to duplicate that same success when he faces Josh Barnett in 2012 for the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix title.
