Not only with the American Kickboxing Academy wrestling coach be

there to support his close friend and training partner Cain

Velasquez as he defends his UFC heavyweight title against Junior

dos Santos, but “DC” will be stepping into the cage

himself, taking on durable knockout artist Roy Nelson in the

penultimate fight of the night.

In this interview with UFC correspondent Joanna Zanella, the

affable Cormier discusses the training he’s done with

Velasquez to prepare for a third encounter with

“Cigano” on Saturday night, and his own preparations

leading up to his showdown with “Big Country.”

He also mentions a recent belt promotion once or twice as well,

not that he’s overly excited about it or anything.
