“I would like it to be for the Strikeforce Championship because I’d like to actually put that  belt on my mantle too – if I’m lucky enough to beat Frank and retire as the last Strikeforce Champion. I think it should be for the Strikeforce Heavyweight Title. If they find it within themselves to make it for the belt, I’d be very pleased.”

Daniel added that when he does enter the UFC, his name should be near the top of the list for title contenders.”I want to throw my name into the hat, if I’m able to get past Frank Mir,” he said. Then he made sure to remind the UFC brass that he’s on his way to come make some noise in the organization. “Hey guys don’t forget about me over here. I’ve been chuggin along and if I get through this fight, that’s three top ten guys in a row. I should be in line for a belt. I should get a shot at either of those divisions.”

If Cain does beat JDS and ends up holding the heavyweight title, Daniel said he’d like to fight Jon Jones at light heavyweight, or in a super fight, depending on the circumstances. “A lot of it depends on the Cain situation,” Cormier said of the possibility he drops to fight at 205 and gets a title fight against Jon Jones. “Standing across the cage from that guy would be great for me. I’d love to do at some point in my career. Even if I am maybe the heavyweight champion and there’s a chance to make a super fight, we could figure something out him and I, because I would not back down from that opportunity.”

If he beats Mir, he's a rightful number 1 contender at either weight class.

you guys are fucking nuts. cormier has done nothing to show he is capable of beating jds or jones. i wouldn't put him in the top five until he fights mir. not a hater, just saying that mma hype trains are the dumbest of them all. this upcoming fight just might surprise everyone. knocking out bigfoot was impressive, but mir's kickboxing is on another level and cormier has already shown an unwillingness to take down submission artists (see monson fight).

You smoke rocks right?...
DC is impressive, but, SF is not the UFC. If he beats Francis, he will have done a lot more to earn the title-shot than Overoids though.

Well, I can't fault you for the weed... But, P4P #1? Getting way ahead of yourself buddy. Seems like the Pride obsessors just want to be contrarian and they have shifted to claiming that SF has the best fighters. That's why Gilbert is #1 (*derp*)... When SF finally goes away, it will be Bellator where all the real talent is. etc.

I'm a DC fan. Big fan. But realistically, he has got to get in to shape and fight at LHW. Or, he's going to Fedor himself. The competition is too strong and the contests are too tight at this point, that a fighter can no longer get away with being pudgy and fighting in the next division up.

Fedor, Randy, DC, these guys would not be able to compete at HW today. Not with true HW's up there.
