Cormier vs. Mir
Last week rumours of Tim Sylvia signing with Strikeforce to face Daniel Cormier were shot down by UFC President Dana White. It now appears Cormier’s opponent will be a former UFC heavyweight champion.
Dana White has now confirmed that Frank Mir will step in to face the Strikeforce World Grand Prix champion Sept. 29 at Power Balance Pavilion in Sacramento, CA.
Dana White: “There has been a lot of speculation as to who Cormier would fight next, and this is the fight that makes the most sense. The reality is, Cormier is one of the best heavyweights in the world. He just won the grand prix and beat Josh Barnett. He needs to fight opponents of that caliber, and Frank Mir is that guy.”
