Daniel Cormier (10-0) remains adamant that Strikeforce always looks after their fighters. Cormier was scheduled for the main event of the recent Strikeforce card before it was cancelled. It was the second Strikeforce card to be cancelled since September. None of the fighters from the recent cancellation have been paid their purse according to Cormier.
“They’re a good organization and they take care of their people,” said Daniel Cormier to Bloody Elbow. “We’ve all seen that they’ve taken care of their fighters in the past. If they do pay us, it won’t surprise me, and if they don’t, oh well.”
Strikeforce was forced to cancel their last two cards due to injuries. They remain open and have announced a huge show to kick off 2013.
Cormier’s next fight will be his last for Strikeforce. He is set to debut for the UFC following his final contracted fight with the Strikeforce. He is rumored to debut either as a light heavyweight or heavyweight.
“The one thing I can really rely on, is that even if I feel bad about my place, and sad about the state of Strikeforce, I know that soon I’ll be fighting in the UFC, and I know that I’ll have security there,” said Cormier.
