Daniel Cormier talks Dion Staring, future in the UFC


This weekend, Daniel Cormier will step inside the Strikeforce cage for the last time in his career, facing the Dutchman Dion Staring in the main card action. Cormier, who’s widely considered as one of the Top 5 Heavyweights on the planet, shared thoughts about his clash with Staring, and the potential title run in the UFC.

DC once again called out Frank Mir for his first fight in the UFC, claiming that it will take time to move down to 205, which collides with his natural desire to stay busy as a fighter. Cormier also spoke about Cain Velasquez and his victory over Junior dos Santos.

  • Cormier comes in with a 10-0-0 record….He looked awesome against bigfoot and Barnett and its just a shame he cannot make a title run at heavyweight in the UFC while cain is at the helm. his biggest weakness in the past has been problems with his kidneys so cutting weight is not something he can do quickly if he comes down to the 205 division.

    • I actually have a big problem with this: I am not fighting my buddy mentality. You want the belt or not!!!

      • You have to remember these guys see eachother everyday, live breathe and eat MMA together, socialise together, and know eachothers game plans. You just have to wait your turn or move divisions….It sucks but this sport is not table tennis. Dudes get seriously hurt in this sport

  • Cormier is one of those guys who is all around good for the sport. Hes well versed, and fun to watch and has a solid head on his shoulders. Would love to see him fight any of the top 10 heavyweights.

  • Cormier is a top 10 HW and a few more wins he will be top 5. I had never heard of the guy until a couple of years ago and have only seen his two latest fights which were impressive. WIll be a great addition to the UFC roster which despite progress still lacks some real depth. A few more of Cormiers calibre and we may one day rate the HW division on a par with some of the lower divisions.

  • Y look past Staring?

    • I am convinced The Soldier will (positively) surprise some people, but in reality it is quit fair to assume Cormier takes this one way or the other.

    I can't wait for Cormier to drop to 205 and body slam Jon Jones.
