Cormier Ready For All Challengers, Thanks To Cain

Daniel Cormier had this to say about his mindset when it comes to fighting:  “I’ve got to get better learning across the cage from Cain. I’ve got to find confidence from that to know I can get in there with anybody. When I go into the cage now, I’m thinking, ‘OK, this isn’t Cain.’ I go in there every day and I spar with Cain Velasquez. This guy isn’t Cain. I find comfort in that, honestly. This guy is the UFC champion. He’s the No. 1 heavyweight in the world. So I think to myself, ‘I’m not fighting him, so why should I lose?’ That’s like my thing. It’s what I tell myself before I go fight. ‘This ain’t Cain. That’s the thing about Strikeforce, it’s really a separation between these elite-level guys and then us, the guys that are coming up. There’s kind of no gatekeepers to go through to get to that level. I think I’m getting on the cusp of that where I’m one, maybe two fights away from being in the thick of it, fighting against what I believe are some of the best heavyweights in the world.”
