Frank Mir has more ways to win the fight than Cormier
 
with this fight happening i see everyone saying mir will get killed out there, theres no way mir can win this but if you look closer frank mir has more ways to win this fight than cornier.

-Frank mir can outsrike him with his longer reach(79) to cormiers(71). Frank mir is the taller, longer athlete.

-Frank mir can throw a big punch to set up a bone crushing sub or dive for a leglock.

-Frank mir will get hurt in an exchange, play possum and bait cormier to gnp and can slap on a brutal sub.

-Frank mir can also, although very unlikely, flat out KO cormier.

thats 4 ways as opposed to cormiers 2 ways this will be a close fight but i see mir taking this.

agree/disagree?

- Frank Mir may have the long reach but DC is a hell of a lot faster so that is 1 option less.

- Frank Mir can throw a big punch but again, I think DC will be too fast for Mir

- Frank Mir will probably get hurt in an exchange and we all saw how well he played possum in the JDS fight and how that worked out for him.

- Just no

well you do have a good point on speed, something i overlooked. im sure working at jackson's they have a gameplan for that, my guess would be to stay at outside range, establish a jab, and fight tall.

He has had success when playing possum before(see lesnar 1 fight).

I think DC's fight IQ is just too good, he always knows what to do best against his opponents.
I don't think he will be lured into Frank's game..

Frank does poorly against fighters that walk forward, i.e. he's screwed

It doesn't matter how many ways you have to win the fight, it matters how probable those ways are to happen relative to your opponents.

Don't agree at all. Don't even have to read your whole post.

This idea that Mir has good striking is hilarious.

Cormier at more of a reach disadvantage....vs. a better striker...dropped Bigfoot like a sack of marbles.

:thumb02:

Game over.

Have you seen Cormier fight before?

LOL

Mir will get murdered, though he has a chance to lock in a sub.

This will be one interesting fight but I think Daniel will win this for sure
