And according to UFC president Dana White, it took "not much" convincing to get Mir to take the fight.

"It makes all the sense in the world when you really think about it," White said Thursday after a news conference for Saturday's UFC on FOX 4 event in Los Angeles. "Mir just lost. Who's had more title shots for the heavyweight division in the UFC than Frank Mir? This guy's been with the company for 11 years.

"For him to get the opportunity to go fight Cormier, and Cormier to have the opportunity to fight Mir, it really does make sense. If Cormier smokes Mir, or the other way around, it's good stuff."

Cormier, after a fairly lengthy layoff with a broken hand, in May beat Josh Barnett in a dominant unanimous decision to win Strikeforce's heavyweight grand prix.

Jumbocrunch -  If Mir loses the strikeforce title, all of the other heavyweights are going to laugh at him. Phone Post
Horseshit. No UFC level HW would laugh at anyone losing to Daniel Cormier.

Mir should not be laughed at if he loses to Cormier, but Mir has talked a ton of shit over the years about the alleged inferiority of fighters from other organizations.

 Anyone who doesn't understand what a tough fighter Cormier is and how losing to him is nothing to be ashamed of is an idiot.

Even if he looses, Barnett is a fight I would like to see...

This is a good move from a fan perspective. Phone Post
