It appears that Josh Barnett and Daniel Cormier will each have one more fight in Strikeforce. While Cormier’s was expected after winning the recent grand prix, USA Today is reporting that Barnett also has a fight left on his current deal to compete in Strikeforce.
When Zuffa purchased Strikeforce last year, they worked out several deals to bring talent into the UFC. Some fighters, however, had specific contracts with Showtime for fights, and it appears Showtime will exercise their option to have Barnett appear once more.
No plans are currently known for who Barnett or Cormier will fight, or when they will fight again, as both are likely to undergo surgery on broken hands. It also remains a mystery when they will come to the UFC, if they will at all.
