Strikeforce World Heavyweight Grand Prix

Saturday, September 10 – 10:00 p.m. ET
U.S. Bank Arena – Cincinnati, Ohio

Antonio Silva (16-2) vs. Daniel Cormier (8-0)

Heavyweight Bout
Line: Silva -170, Cormier +150

In the second Strikeforce World Heavyweight Grand Prix semifinal, two extremely successful fighters in Antonio Silva and Daniel Cormier will duke it out for the chance to take on the winner of the headline Barnett/Kharitonov fight. The two 31-year-olds enter this battle with great pedigrees of success and will be put to the test in what will be the biggest fight of both of their careers. Vegas odds.

Play on the favored SILVA to win this matchup as the more experienced fighter that has proven he can handle a higher level of competition than Cormier. Although Cormier is undefeated, he has never fought somebody as talented as Silva who has beaten big name fighters such as his most recent win over Fedor Emelianenko. Betting lines.

Silva (16-2) enters this fight the winner of his last three, including the last two by TKO. Nicknamed “Bigfoot,” the Brazillian is a talented Jiu-Jitsu fighter while also incorporating some judo. His most recent loss was in 2009 to Fabricio Werdum, a very talented fighter so that shouldn’t be held against him. If Silva can continue to fight the way he has his past three bouts, he’s definitely the pick.

Cormier (8-0) is short for his weight at 5-foot-11 and 249 lbs but that hasn’t stopped him from going undefeated in his brief career. The American likes to employ wrestling techniques, resulting in three of his past five fights being won by submission. He’ll need to use his legs well to not tire, and it is imperative for Cormier to strike accurately if he has any chance to upset Silva. Sports scores.
