As it stands now, heavyweight grand prix winner Daniel Cormier isn't a lock for Strikeforce's January card.

Cormier (10-0 MMA, 7-0 SF) was scheduled to headline a since-canceled Nov. 3 Strikeforce event against UFC import Frank Mir (16-6 MMA, 14-6 UFC), and officials said the next event now is slated for January.

Cormier hopes the Mir bout, which will be his final one in Strikeforce before an anticipated move to the UFC, still happens, though.

Mir, of course, was forced off the card due to an injury, according to the organization. Following the subsequent loss of co-headliner and middleweight champion Luke Rockhold, Strikeforce and broadcast partner Showtime canceled the show this past week and instead put the focus on the as-yet-unannounced January card.

"I don't have an opponent," Cormier told AXS TV's "Inside MMA" on Monday. "But with the two-month delay, hopefully Frank Mir is healed up and ready to go. I haven't been told I'm fighting for sure, but if they're promising a stacked card, I'm hoping I'm one of the guys they look at and you put [me] on the card and it becomes a little bit better."
