Cormier talks about Silva, the Grand Prix and his future

Obviously, I had no reservations, sger Cormier. Im a person who thinks things through, and when I weighed out the positives and negatives, there was no reason for me to not take the fight
Quote:
People are saying that the tournament means nothing because Overeem is out, its the biggest thing in my life. When I first saw the tournament started, I thought it was the greatest collection of heavyweights in one bracket. I still get to fight some of the best heavyweights in the world, and if I string this together, I think it validates me as a mixed martial artist.
regarding his fight with Silva:
Quote:
Im faster than he is, Im more athletic and a better wrestler, and I think Im a pretty decent mixed martial artist. Ive gotten better to the point that I think Im ready to compete with the best guys in the world. I wont know how far I am in this journey until I do test myself with someone like that.

I think Silva is a big step up for him, but I also think Cormier can potentially tear the division up. I love his style, his striking has really developed, so he uses that primarily and has his great wrestling base to fall back on - the way wrestlers with a knack for striking SHOULD fight.

If he can take out Silva impressively, there are not many HW's I would bet against him with. He is Strikeforce's Cain Velasquez.
