He has a chance to pull a Werdum-Fedor or a Mir-Nog/Sylvia. If DC dops him and smells blood, following him to the ground, Frank can sub the fuck out of Cormier, or any other MMA pro.

Mir couldn't get JDS down. He couldn't come close, actually. I'm not bashing JDS' takedown defense, it's quite good. But Fedro's is on another level. DC was one of the top wrestlers on EARTH mainly due to his incredible take down defense. He's almost impossible to take down.

Mir can beat anyone at HW via submission. Chances are he's going to get KO'd looking for that submission though.

My guess would be Mir's best chance of taking it to the ground is getting DC to take him down. Mir isn't the brightest, I could see him step in the cage and just want to bang. Phone Post 3.0

No way mir can take cormier down. Daniel will dictate everything about this fight and will decide when he wants to knock him out too.

Mir is like Randy Couture only without the charisma. He has proven time and again that he can't be counted out. I doubt he'll be able to get this fight to the ground, and I doubt he'll be able to beat DC at all... but nothing would really surprise me in this fight.

DC figures to be better on their feet for sure no? He has great power as well. Why risk going to the ground under those conditions in fight with Mir?

Have not played this yet. Maybe that's what this thread is really about slamming!

If Mir can get it to the ground, he has a great chance of submitting anyone in the UFC.

If he can't get it to the ground, and DC knocks him down, maybe he can pull off a heel hook like he did against Lesnar.

Also, I always perceived Mir as one of the most articulate, intelligent fighters the UFC has. Not sure why people think he's not a smart fighter.

Lets not forget DC was quite comfortable banging from Barnet's guard,and did real damage,which is not joke.


And yes,Joshu is a better top player but still,the guy has skills on the ground even when on his back.


Even if he takes Mir down,which i don't see why he would,he isn't likely to get tapped as easily from Mir's guard.
I give Mir a better chance in a scramble of some sort,after being rocked,similar to the Nog fight(he also tried to roll for a kimura against Shane).


What DC needs to be carefull is the rolling kimura,the single leg to kneebar/ankle lock and suck.

I don't see Mir taking him down and working a submission in this universe,minus DC being rocked on the feet,which is unlikely as well.

Mir will not TAKE him down. DC might put Mir down and follow him to the ground.
But, Mir has shown he's susceptible to GnP by wrestlers... so... Phone Post 3.0

Nah mir standup is clean but sluggish. So a explosive guy like cormier can tag him easily if he sets a high pace. Cormier will knockout him out in the second round.

The fight will be on the ground. Only Cormier will be on top of Mir smashing him. I highly doubt he will be able to pull off a submissiom from there. But you never know. Phone Post 3.0
