...Cormier has that incredible wrestling base that not even the big boys can handle. Daniel's whole game has improved. I think a good gameplan would be to keep it standing at all costs and make Mir kickbox with him. He spars with the Champ and hangs with him. Cormier should avoid taking Mir down at all costs. 1 slip-up, Mir will seize the moment and catch or possible break something. Mir's stand-up has been solid but Cormier is on that killer, hungry level. As long as Daniel keeps it on the feet, he can pick Mir apart and get the finish. Interesting match either way...

I think Mir's standup is average at best. Cormier I believe would wreck him standing and will easily keep the fight there.

We can trade back and forth all night on how the fight will go but one thing that is constant is that we all want to see the fights on this card. Better free card than a few of the pay cards in the past.

Am I missing something ? He said Cormier won't win after he beats Mir, a ko against Jones would be a win.

It's a wonder how anyone can complain about the UFC these days.

UFC on FX 7: Belfort Vs Bisping, Barboza Vs Martins
UFC on Fox 6: Johnson Vs Dodson (C), Rampage Vs Teixiera, Cerrone Vs Pettis, Koch Vs Lamas, Bader Vs Matyushenko
UFC on 156: Aldo Vs Edgar (C), Evans Vs Little Nog, Overeem Vs Bigfoot, Fitch Vs Maia, Benividez Vs Creepy, Woodly Vs Hieron

You know what, I can't be bothered anymore. It looks like we're going to have awesome cards (after Belfort/Bisping) all the way up until April 27. Find me another year in UFC history which would be that stacked.

Never count out Mir. His standup is slow but if he somehow can connect(like in the Kongo fight) with Cormier he can get him to the ground and finish with a sub.
Although I see just another Cormier-Bigfoot fight. Cormier will keep this as kickboxing match and outpoint Mir.
I am looking forward to this fight.

I think Mir gets put away just like he always does against superior fighters. He will turtle up in the corner when he starts getting blasted.
