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.
