Daniel Cormier has heard all the trash talking by Frank Mir and plans to do something about it. The undefeated former Strikeforce star plans to hurt Mir for the full 15 minutes.
“My intention in this fight is not to finish Frank Mir,” said Cormier to Bleacher Report. “I’m going to beat up on Frank Mir for 15 minutes and I’m going to make him stay in that cage with me. If Frank Mir gets finished, it will be because he quit.”
Mir has recently questioned how Cormier’s finishes have come by referee stoppage, not the fighter landing a knockout or submission
Cormier is currently undefeated with 11 wins and five coming from Strikeforce. Three of those fights were ended with one coming by knockout. Mir has nine submission wins and one knockout to go with being a former UFC heavyweight champion.
This fight was rescheduled after Mir pulled out of their November encounter due to injury. They are the co-main event of UFC on FOX 7 on April 20. It comes from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, CA.
