Cormier will head into the bout having gone 6-0 since the highly decorated wrestler transitioned into professional MMA last year. Most recently, Cormier tapped out Soa Palelei in the first round with strikes, at a MMA Xtreme event in November. In his last Strikeforce appearance, which took place at the promotion’s “Houston” event in August, Cormier stopped Jason Riley in the first round with strikes.
Here are some of the comments Cormier posted about the fight on his Twitter account.

Devin is tough he’s fought rothwell, kristoff and others. He’s 18-8 I have 6 fights.
Cole (18-8-1) last competed in September, when he lost by unanimous decision to Aaron Rose while competing under the Shark Fights banner. Prior to that, the International Fight League veteran had won five straight, and was undefeated in seven consecutive bouts.
