Cormier talks about their similarities…
UFC heavyweight fighter Daniel Cormier recently spoke about his relationship with American Kickboxing Academy training partner and friend, UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez. Below are some highlights:
Cormier on his belief that Cain is a better boxer than him: "Technically, I think Cain is the better boxer of the two of us. His combinations are always really tight, and he's in good position, whereas sometimes I tend to wing punches because I just want to hit people so bad."
Cormier on the similarities of how they fight: "When it comes to fighting, we are pretty similar. We both just want to win so bad. But outside the gym, I don't really know how he prepares. On fight day, I don't bother Cain. I won't see him until we're there getting ready to go out. I try to give him his space because I know what kind of space I need."
