Strikeforce Makes Daniel Cormier vs. Frank Mir Official, Confirms Rockhold vs. Larkin

Quote:


Strikeforce on Thursday officially announced its Nov. 3 Cormier vs. Mir fight card slated for Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Okla. It will are live on Showtime at 10 p.m. ET. The broadcast is delayed until 10 p.m. PT on the West Coast.

News of Daniel Cormier vs. Frank Mir in the main event has been public for several weeks. The promotion made it official and also confirmed MMAWeekly.com’s exclusive news of Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold defending against Lorenz Larkin in the co-main event.

“As a former Oklahoma State wrestler and two-time Olympian, Cormier has used his wrestling background to immediately put himself among the sport’s elite,” said Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker. “On Nov. 3 he faces his toughest opponent to date in former UFC heavyweight champ Frank Mir, who has beaten legend after legend on his own path to the title. We’ve had a lot of big heavyweight bouts in the history of Strikeforce, but I can tell you, without a doubt, that this is the one that you don’t want to miss.”

Rockhold has defended his belt twice since winning it from Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza last year. He’ll try to make it three straight when he faces Larkin, who is undefeated in 13 professional bouts.

“Rockhold is rapidly approaching his first full year of being middleweight champ and he’s definitely opened a lot of eyes in that time,” said Coker. “He’s beaten three top contenders, successfully defended the belt twice and looked extremely impressive in doing so. This bout could easily be the toughest matchup he’s seen yet due to Larkin’s equally impressive standup.

Tickets for Strikeforce: Cormier vs. Mir go on sale to the public on Friday, Sep. 14 at 10 a.m. CT. UFC Fight Club members will have the opportunity to purchase tickets to this event Wednesday, Sept. 12 at 10 a.m. CT, via the website www.UFCFightClub.com. A special Internet ticket pre-sale will be available to UFC newsletter and Strikeforce Insider subscribers Thursday, Sept. 13, starting at 10 a.m. CT.

IMO this is a horrible match up for Mir.

I kinda feel sorry for Mir, he is so talanted, but that chin is ruining everything for him. Cormier by KO.

How the hell do they think Larkin deserves a shot at Rockhold before Jacre. He has fought twice since losing to Rockhold. He won both decisively, neither guy gave him any trouble. The first fight with Rockhold was pretty close in my opinion, he really deserves a re-match. This is really screwing up my chances in the FFL.
