Daniel Cormier made history Saturday night, and his team was proud.
It is impossible to not like Daniel Cormier and be happy for him. I mean, the guy is a good person and when he beat Stipe Miocic he became a two-division simultaneous champion. His fans were all thrilled, but to see his team react is pretty awesome. Daniel Cormier posted a video via Twitter of his teammates watching backstage.
Saturday was a great night, but not just for me at the @americankickboxingacademy we are a family. Here is @officialcainvelasquez , @slikbxr and @iamthebay watching the fight in the locker room. I love my team ! The best gym in the world AKA! Go to @iamthebay YouTube page for bts pic.twitter.com/VoQGohclW0

Evan Shoman pointed out that DC’s boxing coach risked life and limb shoving Brock Lesnar, so obviously, the team sticks together.
It was clear the team was super excited. It’s a feel-good story for everyone. Our boss Mike Swick is part of AKA and just hearing him talk about it, and how much he cares about his teammates is pretty amazing.
