The hand Daniel Cormier broke on Antonio Silva's skull is taking its time to heal, and Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker today said the end of the promotion's heavyweight grand prix is waiting on that paw.

"We'll take it on a week-by-week basis," Coker said.

At the moment, the finals of the eight-man tournament are expected to late place in "late first quarter," or March.

"That's the month that we're shooting for," he said.

Coker said Cormier (9-0 MMA, 6-0 SF) is soon due back at the doctor for a follow-up visit. The fighter had a protective cast removed several weeks ago. Presumably, the fighter will receive a timeframe for when he can start hitting things and prepare for Josh Barnett (31-5 MMA, 1-0 SF), who awaits him in a five-round fight for the heavyweight-grand-prix belt.

March of 2013 that is...

If a new deal with Showtime isn't done, then who knows where we'll be able to watch it.

why not just swallow SF and put this fight under the UFC banner? having weak SF cards every 3 months isnt all that appealing, especially when all of their champs will be in the UFC very soon anyways.

just waiting on Jardine to win the SF MW belt before knocking out Anderson Silva for the UFC title a nuthugger can dream cant he?

I think the main reason they haven't killed SF is because of the show-time contract

To quote the infamous Kpro: this tournament has gone about as smoothly as a 3 month old bikini wax.
