Daniel Cormier

A heavyweight fight has been added to this April’s UFC on Fox 7 as Strikeforce importee Daniel Cormier looks set to take on former UFC champion Frank Mir.

One of, if not the hottest prospect in the heavyweight division today, former two time Olympian Daniel Cormier (11-0-0) looks to make a huge splash in the UFC heavyweight division by taking out one of its biggest stars. After completing his destruction of Dion Staring this past weekend Cormier was keen to call out Mir immediately. The AKA product has some of the best pure wrestling in the sport today and has an ever developing stand up game as well as great power.

Not one to ever be lacking confidence, Frank Mir (16-6-0) certainly has the resume to back up his huge bags of confidence. A two time former UFC heavyweight champion, Mir has sent his entire career taking on, and often defeating, the best heavyweight fighters on the planet. He is a superb Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner and over the years has developed a great striking game and has also added a lot of strength to his arsenal. He holds wins over the likes of Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Roy Nelson and Brock Lesnar.

UFC on Fox 7 takes place 20th April from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California and is set to be headlined by a UFC lightweight title fight between Benson Henderson and Strikeforce champion Gilbert Melendez.
