Following his win over Dion Staring on Strikeforce’s final fight card, Daniel Cormier called out Frank Mir looking to fight him in April on the UFC on FOX 7 card which is expected to take place in the HP Pavilion in San Jose, CA.
At the 2012 World MMA Awards, Heidi Fang of MMA Fight Corner spoke with UFC Heavyweight Frank Mir who said he’d like to finally get the chance to get his fight against Cormier rescheduled and initiate him into the UFC.
“I’m hoping Cormier has a good outing against his opponent, which I can’t recall his name right now…which the fact that we all don’t know his name very well, I’m assuming that means that he should do well and hopefully come through unscathed so that he can do what he wants, which is come into the UFC and I can be more than happy welcome him.”
Mir also said that the fight would be sure to test Cormier’s mettle inside the Octagon.
“I think it’s an excellent test for him. I think, you know, always be careful what you wish for. I think that his wrestling will definitely be tested in our fight. My submissions have the ability to definitely change outcomes of fights pretty quickly.”
