UFC 170 results: Daniel Cormier wins lopsided affair over Patrick Cummins

Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE

LAS VEGAS -- In the end, it went about how you'd expect a matchup of the former Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix champion and a coffee-shop barista would go.

Daniel Cormier needed a mere 1:19 to finish late replacement Patrick Cummins on Saturday in the UFC 170 co-main event, bringing a quick conclusion to a week and a half's worth of weirdness.

"Yeah, it had to happen this way," said Cormier (13-0). "I'm had he even hit me twice after all the talking he did."

Cummins (4-1) wasn't afraid of Cormier and was active in engaging in the standup. But it didn't take long to show the disparity of experience between the two. Cormier rocked Cummins in close with a monster uppercut, then took a huge beating on the ground before referee Mario Yamasaki waved off the fight.

The bout was put together when Cormier's original opponent, Rashad Evans, had to pull out last week with a knee injury. Cummins, who trains at Orange County's Reign MMA, took the fight and started yapping about the time he made Cormier cry during practice for Cormier's Olympic training in 2004.

That set off a week's worth of histrionics that Cormier appeared to be glad to put behind him.

"I feel good man," Cormier said. "Listen, when you talk, you better be able to back it up that what I do, it was a big challenge, but I feel like it was my first time down."
