This past weekend Strikeforce heavyweight-grand-prix champion Daniel Cormier signed a new contract that paves his way to the UFC.

Now, Cormier (10-0 MMA, 7-0 SF) just has to beat Dion Staring (28-7 MMA, 0-0 SF) at Strikeforce's final event, which takes place Jan. 12 on his alma mater's home turf.

If Cormier is successful, which is widely expected to be the case, he told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) that he'd like to fight Frank Mir inside the UFC octagon in April.

Cormier, who said his new deal is a "shorter contract," recently received a text message from a friend alerting him to a respectful callout from Mir on FUEL TV's "UFC Tonight."

"So I go, 'OK, Frank Mir and I are going to fight, then,'" said the Olympian and Oklahoma State University grad, who co-headlines the "Strikeforce: Marquardt vs. Saffiedine" event with Staring at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City. (Main-card fights air on Showtime following prelims on Showtime Extreme.)

I know im in the minority but i think Mir can take this one

The Mir fight makes a lot of sense. It would be a good way to introduce him to the ufc fanbase. I wouldn't mind seeing him take on Jones at some point as well.

DC is going to make some noise in 2013. The UFC heavy weights better not sleep on Cormier or they will be the ones sleeping

About time. I couldn't stand to see another Dion Staring type matchup. It's time to see this guy on a UFC main card.

This sounds like a line from an 80's action movie.
