The Midwest Roofing Contractors Association (MRCA) is thrilled to announce that UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier will be headlining the organization's 2019 Annual Conference, slated for November 20-22 in Overland Park, Kan.
The keynote address takes place at 10:30 a.m. on Nov. 21 in Ballroom B, and is open to all attendees. In addition to his successful career in the UFC, Cormier has motivated others by encouraging them to “fall in love with the grind” and being committed to succeeding.
Cormier is a UFC veteran and one of the greatest heavyweight fighters in the organization's history. Cormier was the second fighter to ever hold belts in two weight classes simultaneously and the first to defend his title in both classes. He first joined the UFC in 2013 and has fought giants of the sport like Dan Henderson, Anderson Silva and Jon Jones.
Cormier has had his greatest success against Anthony Johnson. He won the vacant light heavyweight championship against Johnson at UFC 187 and successfully defended the belt at UFC 210. Prior to joining the UFC, he had success as the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix Champion and King of the Cage Heavyweight Champion.
Cormier has a background in college wrestling, winning two junior college national championships at Colby Community College before becoming an All-American and NCAA runner-up at Oklahoma State. He went on to become a six-time U.S. national champion and finish fourth at the 2004 Olympics in the 96 kg weight class.
