Very interesting fight. Kinda similar to the Barnett match up with both fighters being slick on the ground, but Mir has better striking where as Barnett had the better wrestling.

If this is true then i'm ecstatic. Another big name for Cormier's record!

Damn...nobody thought about this. Credit to Joe Silva and the brains behind the match making. I think Daniel is too fast for Mir and will catch em easily just like JDS. Name wise they want to legitimize Cormier to set him up for the championship bout of SF vs UFC. I see it already...

This should give us a real feel for where DC is in the heavyweight ranks. Barnett was a good test, but if he handles Mir as easy then he is definitely ready for a Title run.

The only real chance Mir has of winning here is if Cromier follows Mir to the ground. Mir has shown that even rocked he is still insanely dangerous on the ground.

Had to chuckle...maybe it merged or didn't register properly. All good we all know you post up good articles. Cormier will be fighting the UFC HW champ by 2013 to set up the first and last unification belt that was left vacant by Overeem.

I'm still surprised he beat Barnett that thoroughly. People don't realize Barnett is probably top five if not maybe even top three. His career has been marred by PEDS unfortunately, plus he is a bit of arrogant bastard. I really wonder how him vs Fedor would have been like. Can't believe Fedor retired with little fanfare. The only one that got away...

Not an easy fight for Mir by any means.

Yeah you pretty much nailed it. Frank has no fear and fights whoever they put in front of him. I'm interested to see how he will do against a guy with such an intense wrestling base. Frank will have the advantage in size, BJJ, experience and stand up. But his TDD has never been good and he has never faced a wrestler like Cormier. I really want Mir to win but I could easily see Daniel pulling off a UD.

This is a 5 round fight right? I hope Mir will focus diligently on his conditioning. He has never gone 5 rounds.

If Cormier wins he should definitely get an immediate title shot. The division is lacking contenders and beating Mir is worthy of a shot. If Cormier comes in with a smart gameplan I think he can outgrapple Frank and avoid submissions for a tough decision or TKO.
