Tim Sylvia Says Frank Mir Got Daniel Cormier Fight Because Mir Is An 'Easier Fight' - Bloody Elbow
Tim went on the MMA Hour and discussed the situation(transcription via MMA Mania): |
I think the UFC might have got ahead of themselves and they really couldn't find anybody to fight Cormier, so, they had asked us and we agreed to it and I think after we agreed to it, they were able to talk Frank into doing it and they probably thought Frank was a better fit for it than myself. I think they'd like to see Daniel win and I think he beats Frank, but he would lose to me. I don't know that he (Frank) is an easier fight than (me) but, he is still in the limelight, he is still in the UFC . Frank is definitely better on the ground than I am, but I think my takedown defense and my striking ability would make a tougher fight for DC definitely. But, he is definitely a rising star right now and he would be difficult for anybody really.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
