The legacy of Oklahoma State wrestling in MMA is unmatched by any other college. OSU has produced more UFC champions than any other college program.

Former Cowboy wrestler Daniel Cormier fought to defend his UFC heavyweight title vs. former heavyweight champ Stipe Miocic on Saturday night at UFC 241.

In the first round DC landed some shots and both fighters exchanged, but the most significant moment was Cormier’s takedown of Miocic. After the takedown he pounded for a bit and comfortably won the first round.

The second round seemed to favor Cormier as well. Both sides exchanged shots, but Cormier got the better of most of them.

The third round was the first that could’ve went either way. Both were landing shots, but ultimately it moved to the fourth round with DC up, at least 2 rounds to 1.

In the fourth Miocic landed a body shot then went into an exchange in the corner where he knocked Cormier out.

In the post fight they discussed Cormier’s potential retirement and the 40 year old Cormier was hesitant to say anything.
