Daniel Cormier to Face John Devine at Strikeforce Challengers 7

World-class wrestler Daniel Cormier will make his second step inside the cage at the upcoming Strikeforce Challengers 7 event on March 26 in Fresno, Calif.

Cormier will meet John Devine (5-1), whose resume includes appearances in the Gladiator Challenge and CCFC promotions.
