Opponent For Strikeforce Heavyweight GP Winner Still An Unknown

If Josh Barnett takes care of Daniel Cormier and wins the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix, who would you like to see Barnett face in the “final” Strikeforce heavyweight match.

How about if Cormier, an Olympian, takes care of Barnett and wins the title, who would you prefer to see him face?

Well, if you are UFC president Dana White, that answer still remains a mystery. White, in a recent interview with Steven Marrocco of MMA Junkie, explained they are unsure who that final opponent will be.

Who knows. We could bring somebody else in. There’s probably another heavyweight. I honestly don’t know the answer to that question. I can’t even think about that yet. We’ve got to get that tournament done first.

Barnett and Cormier will finally end the year-plus grand prix when they face off on May 19 from San Jose, California. The bout, which will be the main event for the night, will be televised by Showtime.
