Default Frank Mir injured...out of Cormier fight

Quote:
Frank Mir (16-6 MMA, 14-6 UFC) will not fight Daniel Cormier (10-0 MMA, 7-0 SF), as it turns out.

An undisclosed injury has forced the ex-UFC champ to withdraw from "Strikeforce: Cormier vs. Mir," which takes place Nov. 3 at Chesapeake Energy Center in Oklahoma City, Okla., and airs live on Showtime and Showtime Extreme.

MMAjunkie.com (mmajunkie.com) confirmed the news on Tuesday night with a source close to the promotion following an initial report from news show Sports Rage. It's unknown whether a replacement for Mir has been found.

Sources indicated to MMAjunkie.com that a knee injury could be to blame for Mir's withdrawal.

Mir was set to be the first active UFC fighter to cross over to Strikeforce. His matchup with Cormier materialized after fellow ex-UFC champ Tim Sylvia was nixed for a potential headliner with the Strikeforce heavyweight grand prix champion.

In his most recent appearance, Mir replaced Alistair Overeem to fight UFC heavyweight champ Junior Dos Santos at UFC 146 and lost via second-round TKO. It was his second failed bid to regain the undisputed belt after a motorcycle accident forced him to relinquish the title he won at UFC 48.

The broken leg he sustained kept him out of action for nearly two years.

The undefeated Cormier most recently outpointed Josh Barnett to win the Strikeforce heavyweight grand prix after entering the eight-man tournament in the semifinals as an alternate.

Well, shit. Lets see, who else can Dana throw in... Overeem? Barnett rematch? He could sacrifice Sylvia,or we could see an offer made for Fedor to come back. Options are limited.

I wonder if UFC covering health insurance is really a factor in all these recent fighters pulling out of fights. It seems people use to fight injured all the time anyway. Now everyone is pulling out, as they are covered.

Hunt would probley jump at the opportunity... Doubt he'll be considered though, high risk/low reward.

Hunt would be an easier fight than Mir would have been, and I gave Mir little chance.

I would love to see Werdum step in.

Cormier would beat Mark Hunt very easily imo.

I was thinking Big Nog, but there's no way he'd want to get bumped from a card in Brazil. Werdum would be great though

Sad to hear, hope Frank recovers well.

Hunt is still out. Pat Barry would be fantastic for the few minutes it lasts. That's just too much wishful thinking on my part. :\

Werdum for me but as he's one of the few quality title contenders the UFC have left for JDs I doubt they'll want to sacrifice him.

Hunt doesn't make sense.

I say send over Mike Russow. He's going nowhere.
