As undefeated heavyweight standout Daniel Cormier gets set to square off against Dion Staring during the final Strikeforce fight card, along comes word that “DC” has signed a multi-fight sponsorship deal with the Cage Fighter Athletic Brand. After winning the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix in 2012 with big wins over Antonio Silva and Josh Barnett, Cormier is next slated to battle Staring during the Strikeforce finale. In the days leading up to fight night, watch for the former Olympic wrestler to be representing the Cage Fighter clothing brand, with a walkout shirt and other gear backed by the brand motto to “Embrace the Grind”. The sponsorship deal is a coming home of sorts, as Cormier originally began his career back in 2008 as a key member of Cage Fighter’s stacked roster of professional athletes which has included top talent like Chuck Liddell, BJ Penn, Urijah Faber, Forrest Griffin, Gray Maynard, and many others. Stay tuned for more info on Cormier’s walkout tee and other gear as we get closer to the Strikeforce: Marquardt vs. Saffiedine event on January 12, 2013.
