Frank Mir Will Face Daniel Cormier in Strikeforce Bout

Daniel Cormier: MMA Fighting

According to a Thursday article of USA Today Frank Mir will be headed to Strikeforce.

Daniel Cormier was in need of a high caliber opponent and Dana White believes Frank Mir is just the guy. Mir has recently lost a UFC title fight against Junior Dos Santos and really had nowhere to go in the UFC. This should be a big payday for the Heavyweight who typically tops the charts of the fighter salaries.

This is the cross over we’ve been waiting for, just not the guy to do it. Gilbert Melendez was in need of a high quality opponent but hasn’t gotten him. I believe Thompson won the last fight but didn’t want to see a rematch. Cormier cleared out his division and had nobody to face except for an implant. Mir’s deal will reportedly only have one fight in the organization before heading back to the UFC, but it should be a fun one.
