    I dont know about you but I dont think this match up with Cormier is going to be competitive at all and I can only see Mir losing by tko. I think this is terrible match making, Mir vs Barnett is what people have been asking and talking about for about a decade and with another embarrassing Mir stoppage Mir vs Barnett is going to lose appeal.

    I think it's going to be more competitive than people think, even if I'm favoring DC.

    I'm a big Mir fan, but he's sort of cemented his place as gatekeeper for the Top 5 new breed of the HW division. I think he's a good tester for up and comers like DC. He has to start thinking about retirement though as his days of being a contender are over. I still love his technical commentary, I think he does it better than anyone. Would love to see him calling some fights again ala WEC.

    Mir will always have a WWE fanbase , as long as he keeps giving his critiques about fighters who whooped him (JDS)

    Him going vegan was the dumbest mistake ever. Glad he finally realized and went back to eating meat.

    DC will be lighter, and it'll be his first fight in the UFC. Mir is a veteran, and still young...

    I am calling a Mir sub.

    I agree. It's very transparent that Mir is being sacrificed to give Cormier a high-profile platform to help build interest in him prior to a big fight with Jones. Poor Mir. He's getting fucked up badly, again. I think Werdum would cripple Mir as well, the only good fight out there for Frank is Josh Barnett.

    dc wins by being able to keep the fight standing, having a great chin and heavy hands.

    Mir is still a bigger draw than most, especially DC. As long as this is the case Mir will get these match ups. Also worth considering how well Mir would do against any HW outside the top 10. Personally think he beats them all....

    How will Mir sub Cormier? Cormier will just avoid the ground like he did with Bigfoot and Mir certainly wont be able to take Cormier down. Cormier via KO.
