Daniel Cormier is putting in work with old friends ahead of his trilogy fight with UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic at UFC 252.
Cormier and Miocic have traded wins-and-losses in their previous two encounters. Cormier emerged victorious at UFC 226 and Miocic took his title back at UFC 241. "DC" is pulling out all the stops ahead of UFC 252, as he is training with former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez and former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold. The three champions have trained together for years at American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) in Florida.
The former champ-champ posted the following on Twitter:
We’ve always had each other’s back, I’m so lucky to have these guys in my career and in my life. I couldn’t have done this career without you two fellas. We’re the 3 kings of @AKA_HQ and we went to the moon! I’m so lucky to have my brothers @cainmma @LukeRockhold #andnewagain pic.twitter.com/hZhSOycxFe— Daniel Cormier (@dc_mma) August 4, 2020
