Daniel Cormier - Strikeforce Grand Prix ChampionStrikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix winner Daniel Cormier already has his next fight slated… well, at least the date.

Cormier will fight the final fight of his Strikeforce contract on Sept. 29 in Sacramento, Calif. Strikeforce announced the date during Saturday night’s broadcast of Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Kennedy on Showtime.

No opponent has yet been revealed, but at least Cormier won’t have to wait as long as it took the Grand Prix to play out for his final fight under the Strikeforce banner. Once he has that fight, Cormier will likely move over to the UFC, as Strikeforce’s heavyweight division is being shuttered.

Cormier is a Cinderella story, fighting his way into the heavyweight tournament in a reserve bout with Jeff Monson. When then-Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem fell out of the tournament due to an injury, Cormier stepped in, knocking out Antonio Silva in the semifinals before toppling Josh Barnett for top honors in the final.

Cormier is currently rocking an unblemished 10-0 record.
