The Strikeforce heavyweight grand prix finale between Josh Barnett and Daniel Cormier will finally come to an end on May 19th in San Jose, CA. Tickets for the event will be available April 6th via Ticketmaster.
The two men left standing after the top Strikeforce heavyweights battled it out are now set to go to war before their likely transition to the UFC heavyweight division. The match-up had been sidelined after undefeated Daniel Cormier (9-0) suffered a broken hand in his KO finish of Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva.
Former UFC champion Josh Barnett (31-5) has been on an impressive eight fight streak as well after taking out both Brett Rogers and Sergei Kharitonov via arm-triangle in the Strikeforce tourney.
