Cormier and Cain are two of the best wrestlers in the UFC and while they are friends and training partners, they could be on a collision course for a future fight.

This time, however...
If Gilbert could of pulled out a close victory, we could of had a very big night for Ex-Strikeforce fighters. Seems like Strikeforce guys need to get a little more respect at this time, as they have proved themselves in the UFC. Thomson’s KO of Diaz was nasty and Cormier dominated Mir in a ‘safe’ win. Look forward to more Strikeforce vs UFC fights in the near future....
