Cormier by Knockout, Mir doesn't have the best chin out there.

I'm expecting Mir to get knocked out in this bout.

I expect Cormier to Greco clinch with Frank, push him against the cage, dirty box, and land punches standing until he eventually TKOs him. This fight will only go to the ground if Cormier wants it to.

Frank has done a lot for the sport, but he's coming up on the tail end of things as the sports evolving.

Cormier will be too much in the clinch and ultimately Frank will be backed up against the cage and TKO'd.

I like Frank's attitude coming into this fight, as he's training with Jackson's. He said in the countdown show that he feels like he never really properly trained before now. That's a good attitude.


Fedor, Mir, Lytle, Serra, Hendo, Chuck, Minowaman, Maynard, Forrest, Hunt
Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler

Pretty good step up in competition for Cormier here. I don't consider Mir a world beater but he is dangerous in nearly every fighter because of his submission abilities. He probably also has some of the best boxing that Cormier has faced which sadly is saying something.

Mir is going to get mauled.
No wrestling and no chin won't get you far in the heavyweight division.

If it's true than it's good for him to have improved his training, but "best training camp ever!" is not the first time coming out of a fighter's mouth. Hopefully he lost some of his bulk and gained back some of his speed and agility.
