The Main Event, Episode 9 – Daniel Cormier’s Legacy Following UFC 226 (Audio)

After a dominating victory against one of the best heavyweight fighters of all time in Stipe Miocic, is Daniel Cormier the best fighter today?

With one swift motion (and the many rights and lefts that followed), Daniel Cormier became the UFC Heavyweight Champion at UFC 226. Now a double champion, Cormier’s impressive resume speaks for itself. Or does it?

Even with the controversial Jon Jones rivalry, Cormier has done the one thing he couldn’t. That is the ultimate trump card when discussing Cormier’s legacy. This fact begs the question: Has Daniel Cormier cemented himself as one of the greatest fighter’s in UFC / MMA history? If not, where does he rank to you?

On today’s episode of The Main Event, host Dan Yanofsky breaks done the all-important question on everyone’s mind. Cormier’s potential opponents before retirement, Jon Jones and Brock Lesnar, will also be talked about, and whether they actually deserve a title shot or not. While not considered a “money fight”, there may be an opponent more deserving than those two. Who is it? Listen in to find out!
