MRCA Announces UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier to Provide Keynote Address

The Midwest Roofing Contractors Association announced that UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier will be headlining the organization’s 2019 Annual Conference, slated for November 20-22 in Overland Park, Kansas.

Daniel 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.

The keynote address is scheduled to take place November 21 at 10:30 am in Ballroom B, and the event is open to all attendees. For more information or to register, visit
