Daniel Cormier will receive his wish for his first UFC fight as he will face former heavyweight champion Frank Mir at UFC on Fox 7 on April 20 in San Jose.
Sources close to the fight confirmed to MMAWeekly.com that the bout has been agreed to by both competitors, and should be signed in the coming days. Yahoo! Sports first reported the confirmation on Tuesday.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
I think I just re popped the chub I once had for this fight .
In a perfect world for me DC will do exactly to Mir what Cain did to Bigfoot except this fight will finish with Frank sleeping in the bloody nightmare that's been left on the canvas.
I really believe that people like Bill Murray or John Belushi are just as great and just as valid as Robert De Niro or Al Pacino. And I don't think you can say One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) is a better movie than Animal House (1978); they're different genres. I think they're both examples of great craftsmanship.
This is a terrible fight for Mir, really. Cormier's style is pretty much a textbook on how to beat Frank. The thing I think daniel needs to do in order to make this a VERY long night for frank, is work on his guard passing, and holding guys down in positions like side control and half guard. Ive never been very impressed with Mir's ability to defend shots on the ground, and I think if DC can hold him still he can get a stoppage in his debut.
Apparently Mir turned into a scrub all of a sudden? I have Mir by armbar or guillotine, since I too believe DC will be drilling alot of ankle lock defense. I think Mir takes it in the 2nd. DC is good, but counting out Frank is not normally a wise decision.
A tiger never loses sleep over the opinion of sheep.
