Staring trains with Golden Glory in the Netherlands. He recently made a move to train with the Blackzillians in Boca Raton, Florida along with long time training partner, Alistair Overeem. Daniel Cormier was his next opponent when Staring made his US debut at Strikeforce's final event.

Dion would again fight in the US less than two months later when he took on James McSweeney in the main event of CFA 10. He would again be put down by strikes just 38 seconds ito the first round. He fought in Russia as the main event of ProFC 50 when he took on Alexey Oleinik, but he would be submitted in the first round.
