Daniel Cormier (5-0) wants to take on Chad Griggs (9-1) and avenge Bobby Lashley's loss: "(Chad Griggs) is coming off of a big win, I've been picking up some big wins. ... I say let's do it. I think it's a good fight for me and a good fight for the fans. He'll stand in there and swing 'em and I'll stand in there and swing 'em. It's not going to be me just taking him down. I will stand in there in front of him and we will bang it out. I think it's a real entertaining fight and I think people should want to see it because it's a natural progression. Both of us are free right now and if Strikeforce decides to put it on the table, I would sign that contract in a heartbeat." "Honestly, I would find some comfort in knowing that I avenged Bobby's loss. It's always hard to watch your friends go out like Bobby did or like Mo did. I would find some joy in that and I would do it and I think it's the right thing right now." --Photo by strikeforce.com

One week after pounding out previously unbeaten Lucas Browne in Australia, it appears former U.S. Olympic wrestler Daniel Cormier (3-0) has already booked a return trip Down Under. Australian heavyweight Soa Palelei (11-2) tells InfiniteMMA that he and Cormier will battle for the XMMA Heavyweight title on November 6th in Sydney. Before worrying about Palelei, however, Cormier will have other matters to attend to. Next Friday, August 13th, he'll take on King of the Cage heavyweight champ Tony Johnson Jr. (4-0) in a scheduled five-round title bout. Eight days later on August 21st, Cormier will re-enter the Strikeforce cage to face Jason Riley (9-3) in Houston, Texas. Photo by Dave Mandel for Sherdog. Strikeforce: Houston coverage
