GREAT FALLS – Great Falls mat legends Bill and Mike Zadick are well connected in the greater USA wrestling community and are able to enlist the services of some of the biggest names in the sport for some of their annual clinics in their hometown.

This year, another big name is Electric City bound when current UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier comes to Great Falls as a guest clinician at the Zadick Bros Camp.

Though he’s reached his greatest career heights and achieved worldwide fame as a mixed martial artist, Cormier has an extensive background in wrestling. He was a two-time all-American at Oklahoma State, a two-time Olympian and bronze medalist at the 2007 World Championships.

In the UFC, Cormier is currently the No. 1 ranked pound-for-pound fighter in the promotion. Cormier is the second of three fighters in UFC history to hold titles in two weight classes simultaneously, and the first and only fighter to defend titles in two weight classes.

Other clinicians at the camp include both Zadick brothers, former Belgrade and current Iowa State wrestler Jarrett Degen and three-time NCAA champion Bo Nickal of Penn State.

The camp will be held June 9-13 on the campus of the University of Providence. To register, visit zadickbroswrestling.com/.
