Strikeforce Results: Daniel Cormier Dominates, Calls Out Frank Mir and Jon Jones

Daniel Cormier - Strikeforce Grand Prix ChampionSaturday night was Strikeforce’s final event, and we may also have seen one of Daniel Cormier’s final fights at heavyweight.

Cormier has said he would consider a move to light heavyweight when he steps over into the Octagon, especially now that his training partner, Cain Velasquez, is the UFC heavyweight champion.

There is the chance we’ll see Cormier take one or two more heavyweight bouts while in transition, but after Saturday night’s domination of little known Dion Staring at Strikeforce: Marquardt vs. Saffiedine in Oklahoma City, Okla., Cormier proved no matter what the weight class, he is a fighter to be watching out for when he steps into the Octagon later this year, as soon as April 20 on Fox.

Cormier had to go into the second round to finish Staring, who stepped up when almost no one else would after Frank Mir fell out of the fight.

Cormier continually took Staring to the mat, grinding away with a relentless ground and pound attack. He wore Staring down, finally unloading so many blows in the round two that referee John McCarthy stepped in to stop it at the 4:02 mark.

After the fight, however, was when things really heated up.

Speaking with interview Pat Miletich, Cormier already has the remainder of his 2013 mapped out… if other fighters are willing.

First up, he called out former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir, who, as mentioned, was Cormier’s original opponent for the November Strikeforce event that was eventually cancelled.

“I signed my contract, Frank Mir, you and me, let’s do it,” said Cormier, indicating that he intends to fight April 20 at UFC on Fox 7.

He then has his sights set on light heavyweight.

“I’m gonna let Jon (Jones) defend his belt on April 27 and then I’m gonna kick his ass in the fall.”

Stay tuned to for all of your Strikeforce: Marquardt vs. Saffiedine news and fight coverage.

    lol!!! You aint beatin jones ass fatboy. gud luck in the big leagues scrub. Haha beat jones wtf

    • Jonathan

      come on? seriously?

    • Oswald Cobblepott

      Cormier isn’t fat, anyone who has ever competed in organized sports at a high level can see that. He can run for days and out anything you at anything. What a meathead

  • This fat cocky clown will get turn a new hole in 205 by Jones. God i can’t wait!

    • dd

      suck jones cock some more

  • It’s astonishing to me the minds of ******* children posters have on MMA forums. Yah nice, fat jokes. Go do Nautilus reps at Planet Fitness in your glittery Affliction skull shirts you mongoloids. You’re a somebody behind the anonymity of the internet with your 4th grade wit. Cormier is a threat to anybody in any weight class and you’re a fair-weather fan if you think anything else. Case closed.

    • Sam

      And who the hell are you brainiac you screwing Cormier atleast one of these fans would be in the jym your probably fat that’s why your pissed off maybe you should sign up and take Cormier with you fat boy

      • Should probably run your next comment through spell check and take an English 101 class at DeVry before embarrassing yourself again. Thanks for proving my thesis.

        • Sam

          No because I could care less I’m not a writer just a normal mma fan not some zitty face nerd living with his mom who thinks he knows something about fighting probably couldn’t beat your way out of a wet paper bag so thrive off these fighters achievement’s because you won’t accomplish anything you pathetic life besides annoying people on the Internet analyze that geek

          • You don’t care but felt obligated to reply twice with your wildly illiterate cliched run-on nonsense as you project yourself on me? Congrats, you name yourself Sam like it’s your first time on the internet and your one contribution was calling Cormier fat. You flatter yourself by calling yourself “a normal mma fan”. You’re the lowest common denominator wearing graphic tees and drunkenly booing when there aren’t knockouts. Now you go wear that TapOut shirt when you use your kettle balls and then come on back to the keyboard after you’ve broken a sweat as you live a lie and bask in the glow of fighters who make you feel like you too are one.

          • Sam

            Go read another book or lose your virginity cornball I was watching mma when your mommy was still wiping your ass get out of room and get some air let your computer cool down freak

          • “No because I could care less”

            Yes, somebody else is a nerd because you’re incapable of using simple spelling to convey your aimless, witless 4th grade jokes and may possibly be retarded. If you’re so entitled to your age, then you’d think you’d know how to ******* speak coherently by now. It’s a shame AOL still has competitively-priced dial-up so trailer trash can escape their existences and spread their illiterate cancers online while being too stupid to even have shame for them. Get your GED and I’ll see you when I have my oil changed.

          • Sam

            Yea and you still will be a lonely fat virgin with a 2 inch penis take that in smart guy

          • You’re a 40+ year old man who can’t form a sentence, thinks insulting intelligence somehow doesn’t embarrass himself, and talks about the size of strangers penises online. I’m sure you’re really flourishing in life.

          • Sam

            So what I’m saying must be true you haven’t said it wasn’t kid you need to get laid or get a hobby lay off the Internet

          • You’re a 40-year-old who is wildly illiterate, relishes in his ability to make jokes at a 4th grade level via form of a 1st grade sentence, and who thinks having the last word for something he admittedly “doesn’t care” about will manage to somehow make himself look less retarded. Yah, I feel really inclined to defend myself to somebody on the same plain of intelligence as mom jokes. And this is where you now insult people for doing exactly what you’re doing as you respond within a 15 minute interval to every reply like you aren’t insulting yourself.

            How has evolution not collected you up in its garbage bin by way of car accident or suicide yet? Your kids must loathe you if you’re sincerely this stupid. I’ll save your fat blue collar fingers the trouble of typing “” and explain to you that loathe means hate.

          • Sam

            Like I said get a life and get laid you already established your smarter then everybody with your big words and long comments probably got picked on in school and your mad at the world get over it find a new site mma weekly doesn’t suit you go jerk off to the sims

          • More blabbering illiterate mongoloid run-on jibberish steeped in overwhelming stupidity and denial. Your wife and kids hate you and you’re a failure of a father and husband. Put down MMA as a hobby and pick up suicide.

        • Oswald Cobblepott

          Your the idiot most of us post from a phone quickly between getting other stuff done, I bet your sitting at a desktop keyboard spanking it and spell checking. Spell check…your a tool if you judge intelligence this way

          • “Your the idiot”

            Yah, who judges intelligence by spelling and someone’s failure to convey themselves above cliched 4th grade wit? So a reply by your phone prevents your intelligence from determining the difference between your and you’re three times…I see. It must be the signal blocking your brain waves. I must be the idiot for pointing that out though. Definitely not you for being the one incapable of literacy.

            Defending stupidity while being stupid yourself won’t manage to make you look smarter. If you need spell check for the differences between to/too/two, you have deeper problems in life. So no, “you’re” the idiot. See how I did that, graduated middle school and then responded like somebody who wasn’t a mongoloid?

            “Your the idiot most of us post from a phone quickly between getting other stuff done, I bet your sitting at a desktop keyboard ”

            Acually i only check this site from my computer when i have nothing to do.
            As if this is important enough to stop and check this **** from my phone while im out of the house doing ****.
            I Have a Life !
            Obviously you don’t !

  • Brook

    Are people really discounting an olympic wrestler moving down from heavyweight against jones?

  • Guest

    Ken Pishna = a GED student who likes MMA and thinks he’s a writer

  • Cptmats

    lol what a bunch of retards ! Cormier is def a top three HW. Cormier could easily be UFC HW right now !

    • jimmy

      this is so wright he will kill it at 205!!!

  • Sam

    If he so good why did he look like **** against a no name fighter Jon jones would kill him beside’s that he couldn’t lose that much weight anyways look at him

    • b-soc

      I have to agree. he didn’t look very good at all about the Stairing guy or whoever he was. To me, it wasn’t much of a statement coming into the UFC.

    • Oswald Cobblepott

      He threw Barnett around like a toy and knocked out Bigfoot…it’s not easy to do that every fight but dropping down to 205 will give him an advantage against the entire division. I like Bones but he is in for more than you think!

    • brian stevens

      the easiest answer to this is that he didn’t want to hurt himself. He just came back from a bad broken hand. the other answer is Dion Starling is one tough dude. He’s never been ko’d. this wasn’t an audition he already had his ufc contract. This was just a chance to fulfill an obligation in front of his family and alma mater.

    • Mskels

      Sam do u want to take Daniel one on one and see him whip yo ass. I would.

  • Timothy Malone

    Kind of weird to call out a heavyweight and then the light heavyweight champion. Why not take a fight against a light heavyweight contender in the meantime if he plans on moving to that division?

    • uncle

      Because he doesn’t want to stop eating yet

  • Threekids

    Jones has never fought anyone the caliber of Comier, who would beat him pretty easily.

  • DC vs Roy Nelson would be nice.

  • uncle

    Very foolish to think Jones can’t put this guy away
    look at Jones resume he fought dangerous fighters
    and still came out on top he is the only LHW that
    stands a chance against Anderson Silva if Cormier
    defeats Jones then he would be the real deal

  • Sycokatt

    He hasn’t beaten quality HWs…think if that had been Jones or JDS or Reem fighting that can last night…wouldn’t have gone 20 seconds…took Cormier til the second round…no killer instinct

    • Danjitsu

      Oh yeah, Barnett, and Silva aren’t quality HWs. Get out of here.

      • PJ Brennan

        Beating Silva got Cain a rematch, in which he dominated JDS.

  • jones is ho

    Cormier will take skinny long only Jones down and bomb onhis skinny gay a hole

  • Allen

    ok guys DC is going to catch hell i hate frank mir but i thin mir will beat DC by KO/SUB. Jones is to good you think DC can get inside that 84.5 reach? Jones will use his range and pick him apart from the outside.

  • 801diego

    all good fights. Mir can’t fight wrestlers, so win there. i don’t understand why everything is so planned out. one fight at a time bud

  • 801diego

    i wanna see jds vs nelson 2. nelson striking is getting better and this time i wanna see if jds can actually put him away

  • Cormier against Jones? Get frckng serious…Jones Will embarrass this dude.

  • Sam

    Is this a online writing class or mma weekly who cares if you didn’t spell right or didn’t ad a period this is a site about fighting so if that isn’t your interest please go somewhere else instead of bugging the rest of

  • Daniel Winge Stride

    i looking forward to see DC in the ufc.

  • Mama Fetus Sandwich

    Boy instead of wasting my light bill and running your mouth to strangers on the internet why dont you take your good for nothing self in your room and get it together or better yet get the hell out. Some damn nerve thinking you are educated in word smithing just because you managed to win a spelling B over 7th graders, smdh and quit acting like you know anything about contact sports, the only sport you have ever engaged in is golf and if you take away the ball from that sport is called Walking which is exactly what your wrinkled ass needs after eating all my food. Apologies to everyone else on this forum for my turd of a Sons insecurities. Mama Fetus Sandwich
