Two-time U.S. Olympian Daniel Cormier is the next decorated American wrestler to transition to MMA. Management group Zinkin Entertainment announced on Monday that Cormier has signed to join the ranks of a client list that includes Chuck Liddell, Forrest Griffin, Jon Fitch, Mike Swick, and other established mixed martial artists.

A resident of Oklahoma since his collegiate wrestling career at Oklahoma State University, Cormier is an aggressive freestyle wrestler that will soon begin training at American Kickboxing Academy alongside fighters such as Fitch, Swick, Josh Koscheck, Cain Velasquez, and Josh Thomson.

Attaining a record of 117-10 during his collegiate career, Cormier has achieved several national and international honors in wrestling, including a fourth-place finish at the 2004 Olympic games in Athens, Greece.
