Frank Mir (16-6 MMA, 14-6 UFC) will not fight Daniel Cormier (10-0 MMA, 7-0 SF), as it turns out.

An undisclosed injury has forced the ex-UFC champ to withdraw from "Strikeforce: Cormier vs. Mir," which takes place Nov. 3 at Chesapeake Energy Center in Oklahoma City, Okla., and airs live on Showtime and Showtime Extreme.

MMAjunkie.com (mmajunkie.com) confirmed the news on Tuesday night with a source close to the promotion following an initial report from news show Sports Rage. It's unknown whether a replacement for Mir has been found.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news guys. I think Mir realises its a lose/lose for him



Frank Mir gives me Frank Mir face ~LINK~

god damnit. i was really looking forward to seeing if cormier was ready for the top fighters in the ufc. i think they should just bring him into the ufc for one of the cards in November or December.

Injuries happen in all sports but especially in combat sports where you're training to step in the cage. I hate injures as much as the next guy but I'd rather them pull out and care for their health instead of fighting injured which would most likely make for a bad performance anyway.

I hope they find a new opponent. I wouldn't mind if they used Travis Browne and found someone else (maybe Mitrione) for Big Foot.

I said the same thing. Then someone said they hated me for saying that.


Oh well, I wasn't a big fan of the match up anyway and Mir would probably lose how he always loses, via tko.

I understand that if you want to reach the top or stay at the top you have to train harder than ever before but this is getting ridiculous.All of these fighters who are getting injured better be showing Zuffa their "doctor's excuses".

this is really beyond the joke now, it seems just in the last year there have been more cancellations of big fights than anytime before.

The actual quote i said was "I really hate that for you."

I never said I hated you, just said I didn't relate to it bc the matchup that was ruined was the Aldo/Koch & it gave us Aldo/Edgar, a much better fight.

It doesn't matter now since both fights are gone. Just thought you'd like to know that no one hates you for having that opinion.
