Tim Sylvia Reported To Be Strikeforce Opponent For Daniel Cormier

Daniel Cormier, who recently won the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix, is being linked to a fight in September with former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia.

The website MMA Junkie reported that Sylvia has signed a multi-fight contract with Zuffa to face Cormier on September 29 from Sacramento.

The bout is expected to be the final heavyweight fight for Strikeforce, as the division has been absorbed by the UFC.

UFC president Dana White has said Sylvia would not fight in the UFC again, but if all of the report is true, it appears he might have a future there after all.

Sylvia is 30-7 in his career, while Cormier is undefeated and coming off a victory over Josh Barnett.
