MMAjunkie.com is reporting that Daniel Cormier will be part of the January Strikeforce event. The Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix champion will face
Dion Staring on the card, which is slated to feature three championship matches.

Cormier (10-0) was originally set to square off with former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir this month, but after Mir was forced out, no suitable replacement was ever made. The entire event was eventually scrapped by the promotion.

Staring (28-7) is a training partner of Alistair Overeem and has won each of his last six fights. Fourteen of his career wins have come by way of knockout, while another eight are submission victories.

Agreed

I'm extremely let down with this match up. Strikeforce should of went out with a bang and got the absolute best opponent for Cormier they could. This match up makes NO sense whatsoever like Cormier just beat Josh Barnett and your telling me his next fight is against Dion Staring
