Out here looking like a professional fighter or something.

UFC commentator and former two-division champion Daniel Cormier was left gob smacked Saturday night as Chidi Njokuani, a professional fighter with a 22-7 record with 15 finishes, revealed himself to be a pretty competent mixed martial artist. Speaking with Njokuani following his first-round TKO victory over Duško Todorović at UFC Fight Night: Holm vs Vieira, Cormier marveled at the truly unfathomably positive string of results in the Octagon for Njokuani as the middleweight picked up his massive second whole victory as a UFC fighter.

“Wow, man, what a crazy result that was,” Cormier said to Njokuani after the bout. “I have to imagine that getting to 2-0 in the UFC was always something that seemed like entirely too much of a challenge for a fighter of your caliber, so you must be on top of the world. On a scale of 9 to 10, how shocked are you to not get your ass kicked tonight?”

Cormier’s amazement started before the thrilling finish, with the former wrestler marveling that the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Njokuani didn’t seem totally lost when the fight hit the mats, and expressing how brave and impressive it was that Njokuani got into the cage all on his own without any help from his coaches.
