Strikeforce’s Barnett vs. Cormier Grand Prix Final Likely for March 3 in Ohio

The Strikeforce heavyweight grand prix final between Josh Barnett and Daniel Cormier is expected to take place on March 3 in Columbus, Ohio, according to MMAjunkie.

The Barnett-Cormier winner will be crowned the tournament winner and will fight one more time for the promotion before likely joining the UFC with Strikeforce set to end its heavyweight division.

Barnett (31-5) advanced to the finals with submission wins over Brett Rogers and Sergei Kharitonov, while Cormier (8-0) earned a spot in the tournament with a win over Jeff Monson before breaking his hand in a semifinal knockout of Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva that delayed the finals.

The March 3 event would take place alongside the Arnold Sports Festival like UFC 68, UFC 82, and UFC 96, and WEC 47 from 2007 to 2010.
