Cormier waits for opponent and comments on Dos Santos VS. Cain :: TATAME
| When are you going to fight again? |
No, I donít have a date yet. Iíd like to fight again before the end of the year, somewhere around October, November would be perfect for me, I think. I donít know exactly. Theyíll tell me soon, I hope.
Is there somebody you want to fight against?
I donít care. I donít know how many guys there are standing in line to be in Strikeforceís fights, especially if itís a guy whoís fought in the UFC because itís almost like stepping down, but itís a big fight, and a chance to fight on this division is always a big thing no matter where it is. I have no idea.
There is a rumor about you having already signed with the UFC. Is that truth?
No. I havenít signed with the UFC yet.
But is that something you would like for your future?
Well, they own the company, so obviously if I donít have my Strikeforce fights done I have to go to the UFC, but they own the company so when itís time for me to stop and get my contract and figure it out, itís gonna be with the guys from the UFC and everybody else.
You have one more fight on your Strikeforce contract?
I do. Thatís all Iíve been told: after I win the tournament I have another fight. Until Iím told differently, thatís how Iím gonna approach it. I have no problem with it. Strikeforce, ShowtimeÖ Theyíve been great to me. My first fight was on national television, soÖ If one more fight from the guy I won the tournament puts the cap on the division, Iím glad I can be the guy to do it.
Everybody left to the UFC. Who you might fight next?
I donít know. Everybodyís gone except for Josh Barnett and myself, so I donít know. Thereíre tons of guys that are outside of the UFC and Strikeforce that would jump at the opportunity to fight on Showtime.
Do you consider dropping to the light heavyweight division?
No. Iím a heavyweight, I wanna fight at the heavyweight and see how itís plays out and see where we go from there.
What do you think about the fight at Saturday night?
Itís a good fight. I think itís a good fight, I think it all depends on how far Andersonís coming along on his takedown defenses. If he canít stop the takedowns again heís gonna be in trouble again. Chael Sonnen by decision or Anderson Silva by knockout or finish.
Is Velasquez at his best on the trainings against Junior dos Santos?
Heís doing good. Heís just waiting, really excited to be the UFC champion again. Heís excited to get that belt back so heís in the gym working out, but he has no date, he has nothing set, so itís itís kinda still played by it.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
