Daniel Cormier will likely be a viewer tonight when UFC 146: Dos Santos vs. Mir takes place, as the entire main card five-fight lineup features heavyweights. Cormier recently won the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix title.
In a recent interview with the Brazilian news source Tatame, “DC” offered up his take on the main and co-main event bouts for the evening, which feature Cain Velasquez-Antonio Silva and UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos and Frank Mir.
“Cain’s got every advantage in the fight,” Cormier said. “I expect Saturday night to be pretty successful for him.”
As for the title-fight, Cormier said, “I think Junior dos Santos will win that fight. Frank Mir has shown that he doesn’t do well when he’s in bad situations, and I’m pretty sure Junior will put him into bad situations.”
