Smile Cormier Inks UFC Deal

This past weekend Strikeforce heavyweight-grand-prix champion Daniel Cormier signed a new contract that paves his way to the UFC.

Now, Cormier (10-0 MMA, 7-0 SF) just has to beat Dion Staring (28-7 MMA, 0-0 SF) at Strikeforce's final event, which takes place Jan. 12 on his alma mater's home turf....
Lush. Huge threat to everyone IMO, only guy I'd pick against him is JDS, maybe Reem too.

I always wanted him to be thhe guy to go against Jon Jones over JDS, but if JDS gets through Cain and Overeem, it's just an opening with no challengers what so ever ahead of him. Cormier might just be the guy to put in that place. It could be good to see Cormier fight a lower level UFC HW first, and then see how JDS' title situation plays out to decide where he wants to go. Great addition to the roster though, time to see how he matches up in the big league.

Finally!

Give him the winner of Struve/Hunt since Overeem is probably gonna get the title shot first.

Anderson Silva
Aldo - Dos Anjos - Mayday - Weidman - Machida - Jones

Hell no! Keep him well away from Mark Hunt! He can have Big Country or Werdum.

Mir or maybe Nelson could be a fun fight too. I really like Nelson, win or lose. Out of the cage he's all about boring fights and getting the W, but once that door shuts, he's always bringing it.

Now that Cain is champion, I doubt Cormier is gonna continue fighting at heavyweight.

If Teixeira wins against Rampage, maybe Teixeira vs Cormier for the #1 contender status?

Anderson Silva
Aldo - Dos Anjos - Mayday - Weidman - Machida - Jones

Please Cormier make this fight happen. This is where I place a nice lil bet as he'll be the major under dog against the LHW title holder. Oh it would be so nice!

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

He is definitely going to fight at LHW now, would love to see him put Jones on his back.
