@ this being co-main event to Healy vs Melendez



yea, that's crazy

always rooting for Mir, but i'll probably be picking Cormier. Hard being a Mir fan, sometimes. Other times we get to watch him break a fools arm.

Mir should win this if he can stay away from Cormier's power. Mir can't take punches at all. One good punch and Mir is doing the chicken dance....two or three good punches and the ref is diving in to save his dazed ass. I would like to see Mir win this one.

Mir gets killed. He never gets Cormier down and gets KOed.

Is Mir still going to be coming back to the UFC though regardless if he wins/loses?

Yeah, the SF HW division is gone except for the one off for the tourney winner(Cormier).

Hell of a fight, but one that I can't see Mir winning. Cormier wins this and he might just get himself a UFC title shot.

The UFC should have learned when Chuck crossed over and got KOed by Rampage back in the day. I see a repeat....Mir goes down and goes out in the first.

Mir is making a serious mistake by taking this fight in my opinion.

Its a terrible match up for him. I smell Cormier beating his ass

For those who think Mir is not making a smart decision, I'm going to assume that his new wallet size says otherwise.

Strikeforce lucked out. Ufc could have gave cormier a can

I do believe if cormier wins this fight. When he comes to the ufc he deserves a title shot right off the bat

Agreed if JDS wins. Cain and Cormier will never fight.

I'm gonna love seeing Mir's gameplan coming into this.
Cormier i'm sure is the shorter of the two. He has a tight,compact frame,and I think that will make him hard to take down. On the otherside Mir should,I think have a good reach advantage here.

I need to be in Frank's corner to tell him "Look man...you're a big strong BJJ badass. Cormier is strong and hits hard. We've seen you try to stand. Yes, you ko'd Nogueira, but don't let it go to your head. Please do what you do best and BJJ allllllllllllllllll the way"
