if this is legit man thats awesome, UFC needs to do this more often...and for god sakes help melendez out, they dont even need to send a champ just some quality guys...melendez vs jim miller would be sweet
I'm guessing Barnett still has one fight and Timey vs Barnett is kind of a big deal.

Let's hope Mir's been working on his striking because he's certainly not taking Cormier down.

Gonna be another ugly loss for Mir IMO.

Bitter sweet. It's always nice to see cormier fight but its bittersweet because he's probably going to break his hand and you will have to wait another year to see him again =(.

Cormier round 2 tko.

Bendo | Aldo | Cerrone | Vitor | Fedor | Cormier

Mir needs to back off the body mass and get back to his speedy old self ala the Mir of UFC92/100 kinda physique. He gases and slows down way to quick to be effective against Cormier IMO.

UFC’s Frank Mir Books Strikeforce Fight vs. Cormier

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight champion Frank Mir (16-6 MMA, 14-6 UFC) is temporarily leaving the octagon in favor of a Strikeforce cage.

USA TODAY Sports confirmed with UFC and Strikeforce officials that Mir has agreed to meet Strikeforce grand prix winner and former two-time Olympic wrestler Daniel Cormier (10-0 MMA, 7-0 SF) in the co-main event of September’s Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Healy fight card, on Sept. 29 at Power Balance Pavilion in Sacramento, and airs on Showtime.

“There has been a lot of speculation as to who Cormier would fight next, and this is the fight that makes the most sense,” UFC president Dana White said. “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.”

Strikeforce was purchased by the UFC’s parent company, Zuffa, LLC, in March 2011. The companies have since operated independently, and differences between White and Strikeforce’s broadcast partners at Showtime have led to a largely frosty relationship. However, this booking represents a temporary change in direction, as the UFC and Strikeforce rosters were previously considered mutually exclusive.

Following the fight, both Mir and Cormier will compete in the UFC after a decision this past fall for Strikeforce to dissolve its heavyweight division in favor of focusing on developing other weight classes. Many of the company’s heavyweights moved to the UFC, while Cormier stayed to finish out the heavyweight tournament.

Cormier should destroy Frank, nice set up for a shot at the UFC title.

Poor Timmy.

Who's up now for Silvia?

This should be a slightly more competitive fight with a T/KO still going to Comier.

Fecking great fight.

No idea who will win. I would like Cormier to progress... but Mir has a few tools to say the least.

Whatever, I cant wait. I wonder if we'll get to see it in the UK?

Hope Mir pulls it off. I have nothing bad to say about Cormier, but i hope Mir wins this by submission without taking a leg or an arm
