In his last bout Cormier defeated Josh Barnett via a unanimous decision to become the Strikeforce Heavyweight GP Champion. However now Cormier finds himself left with one fight on his Strikeforce contact with no opponent as of yet.
“That’s all I’ve been told: after I win the tournament I have another fight. Until I’m told differently, that’s how I’m gonna approach it.”
“I don’t know how many guys there are standing in line to be in Strikeforce fights, especially if it’s a guy who’s fought in the UFC because it’s almost like stepping down.”
“I don’t have a date yet. I’d like to fight again before the end of the year, somewhere around October, November would be perfect for me. They’ll tell me soon, I hope.”
