In 2004, Daniel Cormier and Patrick Cummins were Olympic training partners. Ten years later their paths will cross again as they are set to do battle inside the Octagon this Saturday.

Cummins stepped up on 10 days of notice after Cormier’s original opponent, Rashad Evans, had to drop out due to injury.

Now, Cormier vs. Cummins will don the UFC 170 fight card in the night’s co-main event on Saturday, Feb. 22, in Las Vegas.

Cummins says he has done well with Cormier in the gym in the past, but when it comes fight time at UFC 170, how will he do in the Octagon? Will Cummins be able to disrupt Cormier’s undefeated record and spoil his drop to the 205-pound division?
