The long-awaited conclusion to Strikeforce's heavyweight grand prix is slated for May 19.

Strikeforce and Showtime today announced Josh Barnett will meet fellow finalist and injury replacement Daniel Cormier at the upcoming show.

The event takes place May 19. The main card, including Barnett (31-5 MMA, 2-0 SF) vs. Cormier (9-0 MMA, 6-0 SF), airs on Showtime while preliminary-card bouts air on Showtime Extreme.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) first reported the planned May 19 show this past month. Although a host city and venue were not disclosed during tonight's announcement, sources told MMAjunkie.com the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., is a possibility.

The heavyweight grand prix kicked off to great fanfare 13 months ago at East Rutherford, N.J.'s IZOD Center. Fedor Emelianenko took on Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva in the competition's opening round/quarterfinals and was upset in shocking fashion when a cageside doctor ruled him unable to continue after the second round. In the other quarterfinal bracket, Sergei Kharitonov knocked out Andrei Arlovski in the first round.

A few months later, the competition then moved on to Dallas, where a second quarterfinal-round event hosted Barnett vs. Brett Rogers and Alistair Overeem vs. Fabricio Werdum in co-headlining bouts. Barnett took a little more than a round to submit Rogers, and in a heavily booed fight, Overeem outstruck and outpointed Werdum to advance to the semifinals.

During the final-four round in September at U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Barnett easily submitted Kharitonov. Missing from the tournament, however, was Overeem, who was released by Strikeforce parent company Zuffa when he withdrew from the competition with a rib injury (that at the time was compounded by a toe injury). In his place went alternate Cormier, who shocked many by flooring Silva in the first round with a flurry of punches.

However, the finale had been on hold while Cormier recovered from a hand injury. Initially, officials hoped the eight-man tourney would conclude at tonight's show in Columbus, though women's bantamweight champ Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey ultimately took the headlining slot when Cormier wasn't cleared.

Although Strikeforce's heavyweight belt was vacated with Overeem's UFC signing, officials said the grand-prix winner won't receive it. Instead, the grand-prix winner is expected to have one additional fight for the title. In the meantime, Strikeforce's other heavyweights have been folded into the UFC, where imports such as Shawn Jordan and Lavar Johnson recently have picked up victories.

Det bliver sgu spændende, om Barnett kan få Cormier i gulvet. Hvis ikke, så får han sgu nok problemer, idet Cormier lader til at have langt hurtigere hænder.

Du tager ikke lige en Olympisk bryder i gulvet så mit bud ville være at det gør han ikke.

Det kræver et takedown. Lykkes det Barnett at få kampen ned, så vinder han. ;)

Det bliver i øvrigt fedt at se Marquardt tilbage på amerikansk jord. Han må meget gerne schoole kedelige Woodley og lukke munden på dennes hustru, som konstant hyler under hans kampe.

Ifølge Coker er der pt. ingen planer for vinderen, men mon ikke vedkommende ryger fluks til UFC.
Scott Coker via MMAjunkie.com skrev:“There have been some preliminary conversations, but as you can imagine, it depends on who wins and if there are any injuries … (and) any injuries to other fighters that we might be looking to come fight the winner. That’s something that we could probably have a better picture of once the fight’s over and see if there are any injuries.”
