King Mo says Daniel Cormier will retire Frank Mir
 
I think Mir is brave for taking this fight, but man not against an Olympic caliber wrestler. Frank's whole game plan is to take you down and submit you. It aint going down. Cormier by TKO within two.

If you're a fan of former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight titleholder Frank Mir, be sure to catch his upcoming mixed martial arts (MMA) fight in October.

It could be his last.

That's according to former Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion and newly-signed Bellator attraction Muhammed Lawal, who tells Bloody Elbow that Daniel Cormier will retire the UFC import when they hook 'em up inside the Hexagon later this year.

And that will make them even at 1-1.

"The haters can say what they want, but I'll put myself out there and say this: Daniel will be Frank Mir's last fight. Me and Daniel used to place bets on who could retire more people. Right now, I'm up one, because I believe I retired Mark Kerr. Daniel will tie it up after this fight with Frank Mir."

Cormier (10-0) hopes retiring (or simply defeating) Mir will be enough to earn him a shot at the UFC 265-pound strap, which could be held by either Junior dos Santos (reigning) or Cain Velasquez (former), who rematch in December for all the marbles.



And if the latter should prevail, "DC" still intends on grabbing the gold, even if he has to drop to light heavyweight to do it. No question the former Olympian would be a welcome addition to a division starved of contenders.

He's even promised to put Jon Jones on his back.

Well, how about it, haters, anyone think "King Mo" has been wearing his crown too tight? Or could a lopsided loss for Mir send him into permanent retirement?

Thoughts?

If Carwin's **** of him didn't retire him I don't think Cormier will.

Thats what I was thinking... Frank Mir has no problem taking a beating..

The second Lesnar fight was pretty tough on him as well..

not sure about retiring, but i've got a feeling if Frank gets totally whooped he could make the transition over to commentating, possibly for Strikeforce (hopefully to replace Shamrock). And only taking fights once, maybe twice a year ala Rich Franklin when he's needed

I doubt he'll retire, hell, i dont put Cormier that much of a favourite over him.

Hoping Mir wins if im honest.

rooting for Mir big-time on this one. I just hope he's coming in a lot leaner ala Lesnar/Mir II. That fight shown he could take a beating in the 1st and still move quick in the 2nd round. Now he's slow and plodding, powerful with his grappling but hs speed and overall endurance just suffers.

Cormier is taking this fight.

Based on Mir's face, I usually want him to lose :D. I want Cormier to win because it would be good to get a big name HW over to UFC (if he doesn't drop down), but if that plays out I'd like to see him getting beat by a few guys. Not the biggest Cormier fan, and if you take into account that we had Fedor, Arlovski and Werdum in the GP, he is a disappointing winner if I'm being honest.

In fairness to Mir he is quite good on his feet with his hands, AND he is a southpaw, longer reach, good power, not slow, Cormier wont be ready for that.

If Cormier takes him down, he has a dangerous guard.

He does have a weak chin.

But cormier has weak hands and may not ever punch as hard as he did against Bigfoot ever again, but still hard enough to put mir down.

He couldnt put the baby faced assassin away and he is known for poor stand up again due to post bigfoot glass hands.

It really could go either way either way on the feet, either way on the ground.

Cormier hits like a truck and has very good and quick hands. Also, Barnett is a top 10HW and has only been stopped once, so there's no shame in not putting him away. And since when do people suddenly lose their KO power? :D
