On Saturday, Daniel Cormier will defend his light heavyweight championship belt for the first time against Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 192. After defeating Anthony Johnson less than five months ago to claim the vacant title, Cormier is now the one with the target on his back in a division he transitioned to a little over a year ago after spending a majority of his career competing as a heavyweight. His rise to the top has been meteoric, but his toughest test awaits him. Can he stave off all those fighters who want to take that No. 1 spot?
With Gustafsson possessing a sizable six-inch height advantage, Cormier will need to enforce the ground game to even the playing field. In the end, this match is bound to have its fair share of takedown attempts. Throughout his respective career, DC has taken opponents down to the mat with power, speed, aggression, and skill. Let's take a look at Daniel Cormier's Best Takedowns, in GIFs, of course.
