Daniel Cormier Still Doesn't Have an Opponent for Next Fight

| by

In less than a month, Daniel Cormier (10-0) is slated to take part in his last Strikeforce fight. The problem is that he still has no opponent after Frank Mir (16-6) pulled out of the fight in September with an injury.

"I haven't heard anything," said Cormier on Sherdog Radio Network's Beatdown show. "It's actually bordering on pretty crazy now. I just can't understand how it's taken such a long time, but I'm not a guy that's going to harp on it."

Several names have been linked to the fight, but nothing came from it. Matt Mitrione (5-1) was offered the fight but declined. Both Fabricio Werdum (16-5-1) and fight Roy Nelson (17-7) were denied the chance when they offered. Cormier has since called out Pat Barry (7-5).

Come November 3, Cormier believes that he'll be fighting and is open to all challengers as he looks to impress the fans in the state where he made a name for himself in college.

"It's a big deal to me," said Cormier. "I think that's the main reason that [the show is] in Oklahoma. It would mean a lot to me and a lot to my people in Oklahoma for me to actually be on that card. I think [Strikeforce is] aware of that and I think they know that getting an opponent is urgent now."
