In this case it sounded more like how he realized that he had coasted when training before, surrounded by yes men and no real sparring partners. I think the camp change was a real eye opener.

That does not give him a better chin though. But I bet it will improve his game planning.

Cant wait to see this hype train get derailed..

Mir is better than anyone Cormier has faced, so this will be a very relevant fight as far as HW rankings go.. I hope mir has lost some weight training at jacksons he is gonna need his agility back fighting a guy like cormier because its probably going to be a mostly striking match..

Don't agree. I think Big Foot would ruin Mir and Barnett would win a decision. I think Mir is over hyped to hell. Never been overly impressed with him. He's amazing on the ground but lackluster everywhere else.

Mir slow as hell.Mir with bad cardio. Mir with no chin.
Still got the amazing ground game and dangerous submissions.

Yeah we all heard it before and the fact you never know what Frank Mir that will face Cormier makes this a fight itriguing. The result will tell a lot about the future of both fighters. A loss here will really hurt the momentum in their carriers.

It will be interesting to see if the change of traing-camp will make any difference for Mir. As for gameplanning it will be intesting to see what Jackson can bring to the table for Frank Mir. Frank Mir has shown before that he could gamplan a fight to boredom, Mir vs Crocop, where actually ended up defeating Crocop with a nice knee.

By the way I voted for Frank Mir.

barnett is a much better fighter than mir imo, unless cormier tries to work gnp or stays too long on the ground he should get an easy ko win.

Against Mir I think Barnett would get dominated anywhere the fight went, either KO'd or de-limbed.. Dude's boxing is sh!t and if he took it to the ground he would get manhandled.. IMO he is barely top 20 at HW he looks like crap every time he fights win or lose..

BF could land a lucky punch but he is even slower than Mir and would get outclassed everywhere..

Should be an impressive UFC debut for Cormier.

Don't understand how people say it is such a step up in competition? How?

In my eyes Bigfoot and Barnett are both just as good if not better than Mir. Those guys would both beat Mir if they were to be matched against him.

Mir has a hell of a BJJ game and experience vs. top guys. But not much else. His striking is below average. Wrestling is average at best. His chin and cardio are iffy.

This isn't a step up in competition at all and I don't see why people rate Mir so highly.

Why do you think Mir is even a decent striker? Barnett would out last him on the feet because he is 10x tougher. And is a much better wrestler. Bigfoot would easily out-strike Mir.

You may just have a hard on for Mir, I don't think anyone else rates him like you do.
