I know a lot of people say that Mir has a lot of ways to finish with subs "look at Big Nog". But I cannot shake the image of big Nog absolutely lighting him up right before he got subbed. Daniel is going to knock him over the same way, I don't think that will be too hard, but he is not going to jump in to a fishy spot looking for a sub like big Nog has the confidence to do. Cormier has the mat talent to be where he wants and mitigate Mir's attacks from the bottom. I can see this fight looking a lot like the Barnett fight. But I have Daniel winning by second round t.k.o . I think he's gonna rough mir up in the first round and mior will barely make it to the second and not last long once in it.

I'd bet on Mir but his chin is telling me not to.
His striking is very good. particularly his straight right.

Mir is a good striker but he seems a bit slowish and clumsy with all that weight imo. DC is fast with his hands and combinations which will eventually tag Mir. He won't knock him out though, a GNP will follow and the victory for DC in the 2nd.

I know it.

Mir looked ripped at the weigh ins. I'm getting more and more confident in my boy as the fight gets closer.

I wouldn't unless he has worked on his hand speed and striking movement ala the first nog fight and the kongo fight, he has no chance

Funny how Mir is such a bad striker when he KOed Crocop..


also, now he has Mike Winkeljohn to work with on his kickboxing, which I think is gonna make a huge difference. Maybe not in this fight, but in a few months.

Exactly, unfortunately being ripped means absolutely nothing in the cage.

Cormier and his pot belly is better than Mir (ripped or not) in just about every aspect.

Been a Frank Mir fan for years, and ain't gonna change now, by sheer stubbornness I'm picking Mir via Submission.

You realize Schaub did as well don't you.

You want to consider Schaub a decent striker?

I hope you don't. And you actually have to be kidding me with that statement. That fight was one of the worst fights ever, until Mir found a random knee right at the end. To beat an old washed up CC who was KO'd by Schaub.

.... and JDS, and Gonzaga, and Roy Nelson. he kind of ran the whole gambit of levels of striking skills and got knocked out each time. (don't know how Kongo didn't knock him out, though)
