Cormier's final strikeforce fight in Sept..probably will be shadowboxing for 5 rounds
Jul 14, 2012 - The end is near for Daniel Cormier's Strikeforce experience.
Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix champion and two-time Olympian Cormier will end his Strikeforce tenure this September 29th, the promotion announced Saturday evening during the Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Kennedy Showtime broadcast.
No venue or opponent has been named.
Despite winning the Grand Prix and competing through the dissolution of the Strikeforce heavyweight division, Cormier's contract - as well as tournament finals opponent Josh Barnett - requires one final bout before he's allowed to move to the UFC.
Cormier last competed in May where he won the heavyweight tournament, besting Barnett in a five round unanimous decision. Cormier reportedly injured his right hand in that victory and required surgery, but according to tonight's announcement will be healed and ready to compete in a little over two months.
