Frank Mirheard Daniel Cormier call him out in front of the world. Mir listened as Cormier plotted his course to the top, a grand plan culminating with a tour at light heavyweight to take Jon Jones' belt.

I think Brock hit Mir in the head harder than I originally thought.

Not saying he won't take a Cormier arm home, stranger things have happened, but Cormier will be a tough out.

Cormier is compact. Its going to be VERY hard for Mir to get ahold of that arm.

Frank Mir is the best heavyweight Daniel has ever fought.

i read it as DC saying he was gonna go after Jon Jones' belt....not Frank Mir saying that. for what its worth.....



As for Mir vs DC, I like DC to win but anyone can get a KO in HW mma. DC has nice offensive boxing for a wrestler but also left huge openings to get hit from what I saw in his fights. I don't see a Mir sub happening though. I think Mir can win on the feet, he is underrated. He beat 2 of the 4 Pride Mt Rushmore HWs....I think that makes him slightly better than Barnett really. Mir also has the KO/TKO finishing ability in his arsenal that Barnett sort of lacks.


I will be rooting for good old Frank Mir to upset the apple cart in that one.

If Mir wins then he will shock most of the mma world, it is a bad match up for him that he has shown weakness to in the past...a strong wrestler with good gnp and decent stand up.

If you stick to the plan of taking a limb, then yes, you will have a limb souvinier. If you think you can stand again, then no, you will have no souviniers

i agree. this fight is very important for both fighters. frank needs to beat DC to stay in the top echelon of HW's. and DC needs to prove something big in this fight. i know he already beat bigfoot, but i think a win over mir will solidify a chance for him to do what he wants like move to LHW and get a title shot or something along those lines.

I don't see this fight hitting the floor at all to be honest.

This will for sure be Cormier's toughest test but I see him passing this test.

This is going to be very one sided. Mir has a tough time taking a punch, and something tells me he will be punched... hard.

He smashed Bigfoot the number 1 contender and beat up the baby faced assassin. I'd put both those guys on the same shelf as Mirrrrr.

I think Cormier can keep the fight standing and get the KO.
