Strikeforce Marquardt vs. Saffiedine: Daniel Cormier's fight journal

A look behind the scenes with Strikeforce champion Daniel Cormier as he prepares to face Dion Staring at Strikeforce: Marquardt vs. Saffiedine in this video shot by E. Casey Leydon.

MMA Fighting's E. Casey Leydon shoots this exclusive video featuring Daniel Cormier's preparing for his final Strikeforce fight Saturday night. Cormier talks about his career, beating Josh Barnett, his family and much more.

Cormier fights Dion Staring at tonight's event. He's more than a 20-1 favorite.

He commented about those odds to Bloody Elbow's Steph Daniels earlier this week:

"I think that's actually ridiculous. It's pretty disrespectful to Dion, too. This guy has had a long career and fought a lot of people, and for them to just count him out like that is kind of ridiculous. In an MMA fight, all it takes is one punch from a 240 pound man to put you on your ass."
