Daniel Cormier’s Final Strikeforce Fight Set for Sept. 29th in Sacramento


(Put up or shut up! Time to DOUBLE up!)

During the broadcast of Saturday’s Rockhold vs. Kennedy show — possibly while I was taking a leak before the main event — Strikeforce announced that Heavyweight Grand Prix Winner Daniel Cormier‘s final appearance for the promotion will take place on a September 29th card at the Arco Arena in Sacramento, California. No opponent has been named for Cormier yet, and frankly, this speculation about a rematch with Josh Barnett has to be bullshit, right? We hope? (SAVE US, TIM.) Win or lose, Cormier is expected to transition to the UFC following the match.

As it turns out, September 29th is going to be an MMA double-header, with UFC on FUEL TV 5: Struve vs. Miocic: Seriously? also scheduled for that day in Nottingham, England. The card will be broadcast live in the afternoon for North American fans.

@ THE LAW - DC is no slouch, but he fights heavies, and being smaller makes up the difference much like Roy Nelson, part of that is his build.

I looked on his Wikipedia page, but its incomplete - doesn't even show the fights he's had and the wrestling info is spotty at best. Does anyone know what weight DC fought while he was wrestling - before he added the belly fat?

You do your own math. Unless he starts fighting 3 fights a year, and manages to get signed and slotted by the UFC above the top 10 gate holders (some sites rank DC as the 4th or 5th best heavy in the world) he is going to have to never lose a fight.

The 2 fight a year for 3-4 years leaves him at 37-38 years old. Throw in that extra year if you insist on new math, but that places him at 40 fast.

Unless I got this wrong, Strike Force is winding down and who knows how long Showtime will carry their competition. Where does DC go from there?

So we are straight, I don't wear MMA branded clothes, am a 2 time veteran, and a master of war. I hope you continue to log in and defend DC. Posting other MMA websites, is waste.

@XENOPHON----- well at least you got ONE thing correct, DC's NAME!!!
........ as far as your math is concerned and your whole assesment of DC's got not even 8 fights left in him......... WHAT A TOOL..... Thats all I can say, I cant even stay on here to explain. I just read what you said, & It MADE ME REGISTER to CP just to get on here to say --- If you think 33 is old for an olympic level athlete that takes care of himself, and Is BRAND NEW to fighting (ie- has not been punched in the head for years).... NEVERMIND.... Your like one of those guys who comes to practice ONE time to watch, then goes and tells ppl he's a fighter. You prob pay for your "tap-out" gear & pay top dollar for it!!! hehe!!!. Its OBVIOUS that you have ZERO idea what you are talking about. You went FULL- TARD BUDDY!

So I guess the next Strikeforce will be broadcast from the wreckage of Captain Coker's HMS Wicked Wench on the bottom of the Atlantic? They should just ship Coker off to Jolly Ol' London to be the new Cage Rage.

Cormier is a hell of an athlete, but at 5-10 and a half inch, with just a 71 inch reach - fighting as a heavyweight has some major disadvantages. At already 33 years old, at 2 fights a year - he's got less than 8 fights left.
