UFC vs. Strikeforce: Mir vs. Cormier set for Nov. 3rd

by Dave Meltzer | source: mmafighting.com

The first cross-promotional effort between UFC and Strikeforce looks to have a date.

The heavyweight battle with former UFC champion Frank Mir (16-6) facing Strikeforce Grand Prix tournament winner Daniel Cormier (10-0) will take place Nov. 3 in Oklahoma, according to a Showtime source and sources in the Cormier camp.

Mir recently did an interview with MMAFightCorner.com where he talked about the fight taking place on Nov. 4 in Oklahoma, a Sunday night. That would be unusual given Showtime has aired all of its major MMA shows for the past few years on Saturday night, and a Sunday night would be going head-to-head with what is usually the highest rated NFL game of the week.

Does anyone really have to pay to see Mir get beat up again? So will the UFC cancel the event if one of them gets injured a week before the fight, and the UFC puts the blame on the fighter for not taking a short noticed Plan B?

This is a good troll post.Cormier will win by tko or ko. Mir's pillow chin wont help him either.

Still don't understand this fight. If Mir wins, cool your a "strikeforce champion" congrats. If he loses all the casual fans will think he made the UFC look bad, even though dan is a beast

What is left for Mir after he loses this one? No way in hell Mir takes Cormier to the mat.
