Great fight! You can tell that Daniel has been training with Cain, superior striking and cage control from Dainel. Mir had great leg kicks but lost his game plan, if he even had one tonight? Cain vs Cormier.

Not particularly entertaining, but predictable. Cormier has definite advantage in clinches. Mir’s hand speed too slow to hurt Cormier. Think his leg kicks are faster than hands! Cormier’s wrestling standing too much for Mir and enough to out point Mir. Time to retire. Like Franks analysis of fights though

@ ash…I agree…after this fight maybe Mir can gatekeep, and by that I mean stand at the gate and collect tickets from the fans as they enter the building.

Looked like Greg Jackson was a bystander in the corner, don’t think Pops needed to be in Mir’s corner, let his corner men who he’s paying do their job, little different in the heat of the battle, but Frank needed to do exactly what Rogan was saying, throw more leg kicks, so what if Cormier gets tired of eating them and catches one and takes him down, that’s where Frank needed it anyway!.. although, Cormier could have just caught them and threw Frank to the ground without chasing him to the ground, wave him back up for some more punishment!

AOPrinciple Says, in 4-21-2013 at 01:03:32 from    

Maybe I’m speaking from ignorance, but I would say that Mir’s, um, “performance” was a product of Greg Jackson’s ridiculous coaching and strategy. Mir is a grappling specialist for crying out loud! I can just hear Jackson in between rounds… “No, you’re doing great Frank. We don’t need to go to the ground. Just stand up with him and fight him in the clinch. He’ll get tired, and we can eek out a decision, like I do with every one of my other fighters.” The more I see Jackson fighters fight, the less I like Jackson. It was a stupid game plan. Plain and simple. I don’t know, if Mir had tried for submissions, maybe Cormier would have won anyway, but this was not how Mir needed to go about this fight.

Ugly fight but after the Barnett fight I knew this guy is for real,Mir was simply outclassed.
Superior wrestling + heavy hands,not bad.Not bad at all.

I dont think Mir should be too down hearted, wasnt a bad performance @AOPprinciple, i agree man.

Mir needed to just keep throwing the kick instead of been man loved on the fence

He will drop to 205 now i reckon

Your excuses are useless now Frank. You always try to talk as some kind of mma scientist about everybody. Yoy have no punching power and your game plan is always the same. Dreaming of a tack down and finish the fight with some type of summision. What really amazes me about Frank Mir`s attitude is that having no boxing ability he keeps on trying to match strikers. He should try it out at one of those grappling tornaments that yoy can watch on youtube. Cormier will be a future UFC champ for sure. I can`t find any weakness in his fighting.

AOPrinciple Says, in 4-21-2013 at 09:07:33 from    

What a boring fight from Cormier. Boring fight from Cormier, very bad strategy from Mir. Not once did Mir attempt to take it to the ground and submit Cormier, which is exactly what he needed to do. I don’t know what he was thinking.

Akira Says, in 4-21-2013 at 09:31:39 from    

Not a “Great Fight.” Laying on your opponent during the entire match is so gay. But, that’s what happens when UFC implements rules that are geared for the wrestler.

Boring fight, I hope they change the lay and pray aspect of the UFC.

PowerTele Says, in 4-21-2013 at 09:34:19 from    

Not gonna choke out an olympic wrestler with a bully pitbull neck. Frank Mir did not look like he wanted to fight anymore. Look at his face during the break after the first round, no focus. He just needs money. TIme to build a company and be happy like Rampage is. Page is posting pics and doing interviews and having fun. No stress. Well, at least Mir didn’t get smashed and knows he can still fight some other guys.

Joe Dog Says, in 4-21-2013 at 11:08:44 from    

Mir’s stand up is awkward, slow and unimpresssive to say the least, cumbersome, at best. Despite significant size and reach disadvantage, pudgy little Cormier knew how to get it done. I found his performance impressive irrespective of some of the comments above. Fans are stupid to think that an intelligent fighter like Cormier should risk serious injury just to try to satisfy a bunch of Bud Light slurping couch potatoes who want to see a bloody KO. Cormier used his tools to simply kick Mir’s ass in the UFC. Well done.

“like Cormier should risk serious injury just to try to satisfy a (Target Audience) who want to see a bloody KO.”

I’m on your side man but without making those people happy, we have no show to watch.

With the current trend of “point fighters” (and I use fighters loosely) more matches are going to end this way. I just hope new rules of some sort could be on the way before it’s to little to late.

atomos Says, in 4-21-2013 at 17:29:11 from    

mir’s biggest problem is his boxing.
cormier won this fight based on strikes landed while standing and almost all of those strikes were with his hands.

mir’s weight and reach advantage was useless.
he is too slow and too uncoordinated with his fists.

his ground fighting is excellent and feared (cormier had a chance to jump on mir and did not take it at one point). mir should concentrate on improving his boxing.

Dave Says, in 4-22-2013 at 00:24:57 from    

I’m no mir fan, but god I can’t stand people that fight like cormier wtf somebody needs to knock his f****** ass out. this is ridicules press and holding someone against the cage for over 80% of the fight! i wish they could come up with some rule this is getting really boring. he was trying to hard to fight safe. and mir was too stupid to not use his kicks much more. you could clearly tell as soon as cormier got hit with a solid kick his face expression changed and he backed up, I think cormier can be in trouble with a solid kicker. plus mir is just too slow he moves like he is in slow motion lol.

gogators Says, in 4-22-2013 at 13:40:18 from    

Like most older fighters who focused on one aspect of there game more then the rest. The Blue Print to beating Frank Mir is set. Keep him standing do not go to the ground. He is one of my fav fighters I hope he retires soon. 2 time HW Champ he has nothing left to prove. But to all the haters if you think he is that bad step in the cage with him.

Joe Dog Says, in 4-22-2013 at 19:28:33 from    

Mir was once a relevant HW fighter. He has had a few noteworthy if not spectacular submissions. He might win another fight or two against top UFC heavyweights but his time has probably expired.

@ AOPrinciple

People have been saying that exact thing for years and he (Jackson) still remains in the same spot, draining the excitement and explosive violence out of his ‘wards’ and the sport just like he always has
