should have been 5 rounds.. I lol at all the people saying Cormier has solid hands, he looked scared to engage and just hugged looking to sneak shots in...
Edged Mir? Mir had like... two good kicks in the entire fight. This was pretty one-sided.

you really think this fight made an impact on the HW division? basically nothing happened...

technically Cormier won but "nobody" actually won, both fighters looked so bad... Cormier fans should be embarrassed for trying to hype him up talking of 2nd round KOs as if it were set in stone...

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

wow, and Mir was meant to get KTFO in the 1st? ha!

but Mir had zero urgency, was so frustrating to watch, shitty gameplan too.

but lets face it, Cormier looked like shit too

What are you smoking? That was some of the most impressive clinch work and dirty boxing I've seen in awhile.

Kind of disappointed by the fight. Always am when someone doesn't want to pull the trigger and holds back. We all know DC is more than he just showed.

Great re-enactment of Cheick Kongo vs Shawn Jordan.

Would really liked to have seen what might have happened if Mir took Cormier out of his comfort zone cuddling against the cage.

Lost $$ on Mir. What a winnable fight this was for him!

Successful debut for Cormier, that flying spinning kick was awesome, wish it would've landed.

Pretty easy fight for Cormier. Expected a knockout but it seems Mir has learned how to protect his chin in the clinch.
