Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix winner Daniel Cormier will join the Fuel TV team for pre- and post-fight coverage for UFC 155: Dos Santos vs. Velasquez II. The event takes place later this month from Las Vegas, with UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos meeting Cain Velasquez in the main event.
Cormier is set to meet Dion Staring on January 12 at Strikeforce: Marquardt vs. Saffiedine before transitioning to the UFC. It will be his first fight since defeating Josh Barnett earlier this year.
The former Olympian will be offering insight on the fight, especially Velasquez, who he trains with at American Kickboxing Academy in California. Cormier has stated in the past that he could move to light heavyweight should Velasquez re-capture the UFC title.
Cormier confirmed word of his position with Fuel TV in an interview with MMAWeekly.com Radio over the weekend, adding, “a lot of positive things are happening right now.”
