Patrick Cummins to meet Daniel Cormier at UFC 170

Daniel Cormier Rashad Evans is injured and who better to take his place at UFC 170 on a week’s notice than Patrick Cummins! Wait. Who’s Patrick Cummins?

Patrick Cummins is a two time national champion in wrestling and is undefeated, just like Daniel Cormier, in MMA. Cummins is 4-0 and hasn’t fought since May of last year. He has won all of his fights in the first round with a pair of submissions to go along with a pair of TKO’s. According to he trains at Reign MMA and Kings MMA. Cummins will welcome Daniel Cormier to the light heavyweight division.

I applaud Dana White and the UFC for getting Cormier a fight. That is awesome considering the work and preparation that he has put into this camp. Patrick Cummins may not be Rashad Evans but we have a bout! That being said, why would you sign a guy with little experience and less than a week to get ready for what could be one of the top 205 pounders?
