Strikeforce Heavyweight Daniel Cormier, has signed with the Cage Fighter Athletic Brand. The surprising winner of the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix, Cormier should have a shirt, shorts and banner representing the brand on Saturday night.
Undefeated in MMA, the former Olympic wrestler was sponsored by Cage Fighter in 2008. According to the Cage Fighter web site, Lutte Licensing Group (which owns Cage Fighter) signed an exclusive licensing, sponsoring and marketing agreement with Cormier.
Its a multi-fight deal for Cormier and we should see him wearing the “Embrace the Grind” motto for the brand Saturday night in the last Strikeforce event ever. Cormier appears to be an affable guy (based on watching “The Fight Factory”) with a good background in amateur wrestling and should be an asset for the brand. Depending on where he lands in weight class, he could be a force in the UFC.
