Officials have maintained that the Strikeforce world heavyweight grand prix winner will get another Strikeforce fight – informally referred to as the "plus-one" fight – but Coker said nothing definitive has been decided beyond that.
"There have been some preliminary conversations, but as you can imagine, it depends on who wins and if there are any injuries ... (and) any injuries to other fighters that we might be looking to come fight the winner," Coker said. "That's something that we could probably have a better picture of once the fight's over and see if there are any injuries."
"Me? I do not care," said Barnett. "It does not matter. I've got to beat Daniel Cormier, and then after that I'm sure there will be somebody else, and whatever they're doing someplace else, more power to them."
"Scott Coker, everybody at Zuffa's done a great job of letting us know that after this fight you aren't going over," he said. "You know that you have to fight in Strikeforce, so my idea that I have this fight and another one in Strikeforce. Whatever happens after that happens."
