Daniel Cormier: 'I wish somebody would have told me'

by Mike Chiappetta | source: mmafighting.com

The news that a second straight event has been scrapped by Strikeforcewhich was announced in a joint Strikeforce/Showtime press release, immediately angered heavyweight headliner Daniel Cormier, who had been training and anticipating an opponent switch.

"I wish somebody would have told me something," he told MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani. "This is unbelievable. I'm very upset. I just want to be informed. That's all. I don't think that's asking for too much."

Strikeforce has not produced a card since August 18, but with the possibility of returns from Melendez and Rockhold, the probability of a Cormier fight and most of the rest of the roster being available, the broadcast partners expect to put on a major event next time out.

Gil is probably the most unfortunate fighter in MMA right now. It would be one thing if he constantly couldn't fight due to injury, but here's a guy whose entire prime is being pissed away because of bullshit contractual terms and the like. Watch him fight Thompson again 8 months from now. Or maybe Strikeforce ponies up and finally gives us that Melendez-Gurgel classic we've all been waiting so long for.

I think it's time to move Cormier to the UFC.

At least the WEC had a "dignified" ending.

I volunteer to be the UFC's bad news call guy. Fighters opponent is hurt? I'll tell him. Gotta cut somebody? What's his number? Tell Dana there's no Pink Berry in town? I'll direct him to Merla Mae

Just end it already, I dig Strikeforce, but just as everyone predicted when it was purchased by Zuffa, Zuffa had no long term intent on keeping Strikeforce alive. The entire purpose in Zuffa purchasing Strikeforce was to obtain the fighter contracts and to more importantly, kill a counterweight that could have been used by fighters to drive the price of fighter contracts higher.
