Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Daniel Cormier: Yup, I Broked It

“This hurts me more than it does you.”   PicProps:  Esther Lin

Bad news for all you rabid Daniel Cormier fans: the big guy confirmed yesterday that his right hand is indeed broken after he used said hand to bludgeon Bigfoot Silva into La-La Land and out of the heavyweight grand prix:

Cormier worked his way from an alternate slot in the Strikeforce GP to a finals matchup with Josh Barnett, but his victories may be all for naught if he doesn’t heal quickly enough.

MMAJunkie relayed that Scott Coker would like to have Cormier in the finals, but speaking hypothetically, “if Daniel wasn’t available for an extended period of time, [Strikeforce would] consider another opponent” for the final bout of the tourney.

That final bout is tentatively scheduled for sometime early next year, but Strikeforce has shown impatience before with tournament entrants taking time off for injuries, so … paging Chad Griggs?

May as well wait to finish the tournament. Surely strikeforce isn't in a rush to lose another of it's best fighters as soon as it's over.

I have to say I was impressed by Cormier. Not bad striking for a short guy with so few fights and a wrestling back ground.

CHAD GRIGGS! CHAD GRIGGS! CHAD GRIGGS! You guys are forgetting that Cormier is the alternate alternate, not griggs. He's had just as many GP fights as Cormier

Is Dr. Hand related to Mr. Hands? If so Cormier is lucky to escape with just a broken hand.

If they do go ahead with the tourny using an alternative that will be the true death-knell of SF, and then there will be no denying that Zuffa doesn't care about the Strikeforce brand. Putting on these shows just to run out the Showtime contract will quickly get to the point of being unbearable to watch...

Got a lot of respect for Cormier., but I can't help and think of what Bas Rutten says all the time: "people who break their hands all the time don't know how to punch correctly".

The question is, how could you hit Pezão's jaw and NOT break your hand?
War Chad Griggs!!!

Thats funny because my captcha is Fedor Emelianegro.

Fuck the UG!

According to Wikipedia, Cormier's nickname is "Fedor Emelianegro." WHY DOESN'T ANYONE CALL HIM THAT?

I've got an appointment with Dr. Hand today also.

Well they should be done before the tourney ends then. An alternate fighting in the final of a tournament is even more absurd than an alternate fighting in the semi-finals. This is the problem with tournaments, though. And they should be all the same night, anyway :-D

maybe they will bring fedor back, barnett will piss hot again and thar matchup will bring down strikeforce just like it did to affliction

Replacing him would be stupid. It's the finals, waiting until his hand's healed isn't going to hold up the other tourney bouts or anything, and Big Daddy Dana's more than happy to keep Strikeforce's fighters busy.
