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

I sure hope Greg Jackson has a gameplan for Mir (not one that involves running away), Mir has got rid of his 'yes' men, we'll see where it gets him.

It will get him another Ko loss. Unless Jackson has improved his boxing, improved his movement and gave him a solid chin.

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

If Brock took down and made a pancake out of Mir then Cormier is going to grind him to dust. Size or no, Cormier is 10x the wrestler, and better on the feet as well.

- Just no
Well, the only 2 clear advantages I see Mir having is:

-Experience
-BJJ/Ground work

Daniel Cormier is much quicker, much better striking, better potential to swarm and get the T/KO.

He also has much better scrambling skills and world glass Olympic wrestling.

Although I wouldn't write Mir off, it'll be a long shot for him to win. This isn't going to be similar to the Nog fight, you can bet on that!

Will you come back here and talk about it if Mir gets trashed? Or will you run away as if you never said this?

I think DC can win this, but I wouldn't bet the farm on it. People coming from other orgs, just don't seem to live up the hype. I hope DC will be the exception.

Strikeforce has done very well since the merge...

It is a tad different than Lombard fighting straight cans for years in far inferior organizations. Him fighting Trevor Prangley and DC fighting Josh Barnett is 2 very different things.

That does not compute...as Schwartzenegger says.
Monson has no striking game at all, it is not even sub par. It does not excist! So your claim sounds like trolling.
