    i see mir getting tagged w a sloppy hook after he tries a bit to get the fight to the mat unsuccessfully

    but if mir pulled this off, it would be huge for his career i think

    Ish doesn't sound good, he makes himself sound like a stepping stone or a gatekeeper.

    He's planning on losing

    I feel he's turned into a company man for Dana and Zuffa.

    Mir has had the most deserved title shots in UFC history. Let's see if he can fumble together another run for Cain

    Mir looks at Cormier and sees $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ (That's Anderson Silva money for those who didn't get it)

    I dont know why Mir has to take 50 words to say what others can say in 10. Guess thats why people think hes so smart.

    Frank Mir is delusional if he thinks he can test Cormier's wrestling.

    He's going to be a good test to see how good of a job Comirer's surgeon done on his right hand.

    Mir has a history of fairing very well against the Wrestlers/Striker Combo.

    Now, I'm not by any means saying Mir "can't strike", but his striking technique definitely has it's, especially defensive, flaws. He tends to leave his jabs hanging, and gets punished for it constantly by overhand rights. Mir also has a bad habit of not tucking in his chin and hiding his jawline behind his shoulders while punching.

    This is why he gets "caught" so often, and also the reason why Cormier, who seemingly hasn't developed nearly as many negative striking tendancies, will blast him standing up.

    Mir is a threat to most fighters. Ya he has his loses but he is probably the best fighter Cormier has faced in his career.

    Now this is a notion I simply can't agree with at this point. I feel like Bigfoot is the most dangerous opponent Cormier has faced so far, but I'd definitely rank Mir above Barnett.

    Yeah, I see DC's hands being too much. But, I don't mind, I like DC and want to see him rise to the top.

    I consider Mir to be a slightly more accomplished Josh Barnett and with a pretty similar skillset. This is certainly Cormier's fight to lose, but if Mir has shown anything in his career it's that he can pull off subs from the bottom.

    I'm looking for Cormier to knock Mir down with an overhand right, Mir to eat a lot of shots from half guard and gas his arms and hips out trying for a power sub that Cormier defends, then come out exhausted in the second round, get dropped again and finished.

    but I could be wrong. I often am.

    I think mir might win an upset if cormier decides to play it safe.... mir definitely doesnt play it safe.

    I agree with him - he's perfect. Cormier should run right through him, and if he doesn't, then we know Daniel has some more work to do.
