Frank Mir Injured: Out of His Bout with Daniel Cormier

Quote:
And the hits just keep on coming! It has been a real rough month for UFC President Dana White as well as for the fans. For the third time in less than four weeks a main event has lost one of its participants.

MMA Junkie broke word last night that Frank Mir’s Strikeforce debut has gone up in smoke due to an undisclosed knee injury that will keep him out of his match-up with Daniel Cormier. The two were scheduled to meet on November 3 in Oklahoma.

Mir’s appearance in the Strikeforce Hexagon was to be the first time a UFC Fighter would make an appearance on Showtime since Zuffa purchased the San Jose based organization last year. Fans were presently surprised when the announcement was made, but now the carpet has been pulled right out from under them.

Cormier was not only looking forward to testing himself against the former UFC Heavyweight Champion, he was also excited about fighting in Oklahoma. The Strikeforce Grand Prix Heavyweight Champion starred at Oklahoma State University and then went on to compete internationally.

It is not known whether the UFC/Strikeforce will look for another suitable opponent or will remove Cormier from this event altogether. Tim Sylvia had been discussed before Mir agreed to take the fight, but it’s highly unlikely Zuffa would go that route after Sylvia’s performance against Andrei Arlovski at a One FC event a few weeks ago.

Mir’s injury comes on the heels of Dan Henderson’s knee injury which forced his removal from the UFC 151 main event in which he was set to face current UFC 205lb. champion Jon Jones. UFC 153 lost both of its original main event fighters when Erik Koch suffered a knee injury. Frankie Edgar stepped in to face Jose Aldo in his featherweight debut, but that bout was scrapped after Aldo suffered a foot injury in a motorcycle accident.

Man this has been a really rough month. So many main events lost. I was really looking forward to this fight too. Next GSP is gonna get hurt, then Cain.

To a bigger office?

Oh...ya I guess it isn't UFC related. I just naturally posted it here because it was about Frank Mir.

Aaaaand it was already posted in the strikeforce section. Sorry guys!

Well technically it is UFC related since Mir's a UFC guy.

I guess we shouldn't be surprised though, dunno who the hell Cormier will fight now, Werdum? That'd be a great number one contenders fight, but it'd be outside the UFC....

I'm actually not that bothered. Cormier is alright, but unless he's fighting in UFC he's completley irrelevent. In other divisions it's okay but in the HW, it's just not inportant. I'm also not interested in any way in Frank Mir. Alright, he pilled off a dope submission against Nog, that's cool, but he gets schooled on the feet against everyone these days and I always found him to be completley overrated.

Arlovski Vs Cormier or Cormier in UFC!
