Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix Winner Daniel Cormier spoke about his tournament victory after defeating Josh Barnett Saturday night and talked about how bad things that have happened in the past have prepared him for the good times he faces in the future:
"We_ve all been through our trial and tribulations, but for all the negative things that have happened in my life, with me getting knocked down and having to get back up, I think it all prepared me for this. It made me a strong person. Everything is turning around. Losing my daughter, my dad getting killed, and it goes on and on – a [roommate] dying in a plane crash – all that stuff prepared me for these good times."
Cormier also discussed Barnett_s toughness and his plans to get back in the cage at least two more times this year despite breaking his hand:
"I couldn_t believe some of the shots I landed on him – especially the two head kicks – and he was able to actually stay up."
"I don_t want it to be reoccuring and then costing my down the line. Still, I want to fight twice before the end of the year."
