Despite posting a landslide unanimous decision victory over former UFC heavyweight champ Frank Mir on Saturday night, Daniel Cormier (pictured) admitted his big league debut was nothing to write home about. In fact, Cormier said he “kind of laid an egg.”
Nonetheless, a win is a win.
Cormier continued to press Mir’s back against the cage and dominate the action from the fence. When they separated, the former Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix winner used his superior speed to beat Mir to the punch.
While Cormier was more than happy to call out UFC light heavyweight king Jon Jones in January, promising to “kick his ass,” the former Olympic wrestler wasn’t in as much of a hurry after tonight’s outing.
UFC on FOX 7 took place inside HP Pavilion in San Jose, California.
