Cormier vs Struve can't be far off the horizon.

It doesn't matter if Cormier wins or loses against Frank Mir, I'm sure he'll be fighting Struve next.
They won't do that to Struve....at least I hope not.

Im just not buying into the Cormier hype, i haven't seen anything special from him... Mir is a good test though, we will really get to see where he stands now.

History teaches us that whenever Mir says he's more skilled than his opponent he's gonna end up in fetus position.

Ironic, considering most of us expect Mir to get knocked out.

Dropping a man who has 6 inches on him, 50lbs, and much more reach wasn't that special. When the "best and most deadly striker in the HW Div" Reem couldn't do that in 2.5 rounds?

Dumping Josh Barnett on his head as if he were Carlos Condit whenever he felt like it wasn't that impressive?

Geez, tough crowd.

How will he "really see where he stands" vs. Mir? Barnett is a better fighter than Mir. I bet Bigfoot would beat Mir too. DC gets to prove he won't be taken down by Mir and he can out-strike Mir? I think we already know this.

Nope not impressive, neither is Reem the most retardedly overrated roid head in MMA..

Mir is better everywhere than Barnett besides his chin.. I like Bigfoot but he is too slow to catch mir (who is not an idiot like reem) and would likely get a limb torn from his torso if it actually went to the ground.. Mir has sh!t takedowns sure but if Cormier takes Mir down he is not gonna get an easy ride like he did vs. Barnett. The standup should be fun to watch, JDS had to work for his KO so i suspect the slower and less powerful Cormier will have some issues too...

Im not saying cormier is bad, but all this hype and comparing him to JBJ is nonsense.. thats why i like this fight because it is very relevant to the HW rankings..

I guess I just don't agree. Mir gets the rep of some improving striker. I don't see the appeal. Other than dropping KOngo what has he ever done striking?

Barnett is as good if not a better striker. Mir has better pure BJJ but Barnett's catch wrestling is just as effective. Barnett can actually wrestle and get guys to the ground to use his subs. Mir cannot. And Barnett is much more durable. Barnett is better because he can simply use his subs on most HWs by taking them down.

I guess I just don't understand anyone who thinks Mir is decent standing. He is a bad striker.

Poor old Struve probably will get ol' Danny! Which really sucks for him because of the three fights you mentioned he was brutally knocked out twice, and won against a helpless when grounded Pat Berry. And rest assured Stefan will get mauled in every aspect against Cormier.

yeah true Barnett doesn't just have a better chin, he does have decent wrestling too which everyone knows Mir does not..

Mirs striking has been slow ever since he hulked up.. which i still think is the wrong fighting body type for him, but anyways that and his average chin (which looks even worse because he is a HW) does make him appear to be a "bad striker"
