Daniel Cormier dealing with “worst case scenario”

It appears former Olympian and current Strikeforce Grand Prix finalist Daniel Cormier has hit the first speedbump in his otherwise brilliant career. The undefeated heavyweight recently announced he’d broken his hand in a semifinal scrap a week ago with Antonio Silva. Now Cormier has got a better idea of how long he’ll be out and admitted the situation as a whole is weighing heavily on his mind.

“This is terrible for me, man,” the American Kickboxing Acdemy product said in a conversation with MMAFighting. “The thing that makes it so difficult is, I think Josh (Barnett) is so good. I need to have a ten-week training camp to prepare for that fight, so this is worst-case scenario for me.”

With Strikeforce planning the Grand Prix Final for early 2012 and Cormier’s hand in a cast for the next six to eight weeks, it’s possible the 32-year old could be replaced if Zuffa determines the tournament’s conclusion needs to take place sooner than later.

“I guess I was thinking that the show has to go on. I really do want to be a part of it. It means a lot to me, knowing I got this opportunity, and I saw that belt and I instantly wanted that belt. I want to be one of the champions in Strikeforce, because that’s where I started. It’s where I had my first fight.”

However, Cormier understands business is business from personal experience, adding, “But I can’t act that surprised, because I got my opportunity (in the tournament) for the same exact reason.”

Cormier is coming off the two biggest wins of his career, a knockout of “Bigfoot” Silva and a sound drumming of veteran competitor Jeff Monson a fight earlier. He is 9-0 overall with four TKOs, three submissions, and two decisions.
