A new face will appear in Frank Mir's corner when he takes on Daniel Cormier at a UFC on Fox event in April: Greg Jackson.

Mir, 33, plans to join Jackson in Albuquerque for an eight-week camp beginning later this month. It's the first time the Las Vegas native will train for a fight outside his hometown.

Following a second-round TKO loss to Junior Dos Santos for the UFC title in May, Mir says he felt a need to modify his standard routine.

"I've always felt I have great trainers so there was no reason to leave, but my wife and I were talking about how I needed to change things up," Mir told ESPN.com. "One of the things was maybe I should get out of town and get more focused.

Not a bad idea always felt Mir needed to go to a gym and get pushed.

Good move for him. He probably has a good feel of the coaches after helping Team Jones on TUF this season.

His wife told him to get out of town. So I could come over.

I like the move.
He needs to start training in other spots

"I'll sign his cast after the fight."...great quote.

I think this is a smart move. Mir does need a solid gameplan to beat Cormier.

Good move for Frank but he'll still get pounded out!!! He should of made a move like this earlier in his career.

Cormier TKO RD2!!!

Oh yeah right... Like a hard hitting wrestler could ever beat Mir.

Mir can't win this fight in boring ways. Quick sub or getting pummeled are his choices.

Yoi guys cant see mir winning this on the feet?

I always enjoy when the vets pull off upsets/surprise wins. It would be cool if Mir won. Cormier is a beast though and I also enjoy watching wrestlers frustrate & beat up bjj guys.

so, either way I'm good. Kind of want to see Mir win more.

Who knows if I was Mir I'd take a page out of Werdums playbook against Fedor, just get knocked down early and catch him coming in wild.

That's basically the only way I see him winning it, as long as his chin holds up.
