    Cormier vs Barnett will be an awesome match. The winner SHOULD be crowed the new SF champ!

    I don’t see either of the two beating Cain or JDS, however.

    Either way!! Cormier would never fight Cain they are training partners an good friends!! but i still just think Barnett win pull a win out against Cormier!!!

    This will be a great fight, I’ll actually give the edge to Cormier in this one. If his wrestling nullifies Barnett’s takedown, I think he’s definitely got the edge in the standup department. I’m excited to see what happens with Cormier after Strikeforce folds.
