It’s official: The heavyweight battle between Daniel Cormier and Frank Mir will go down at UFC on FOX 7, April 20th at the HP Pavilion in San Jose. Yahoo! Sports reported the booking today, also confirming that the Benson Henderson vs. Gilbert Melendez lightweight title fight will be on the card.

Cormier and Mir were originally scheduled to fight under the Strikeforce banner in November, but the former UFC heavyweight champ had to pull out of the match due to injury. Mir hasn’t competed since his TKO loss to Junior Dos Santos at UFC 146 in May. For the record, Mir wasn’t too impressed with Cormier’s TKO win over Dion Staring this weekend, telling MMAJunkie:

He can go out there like his last fight and fight somebody that’s subpar. The only problem is that you have to go out there and really be devastating to get any kind of positive criticism…He’s in a situation right now where I don’t think many people were even moved by his fight. I think the most impressive thing he did in the whole fight was calling me out.”

Throughout his relatively brief MMA career, Cormier has proven to be the kind of fighter who rises to the level of his competition — so maybe he’ll look a whole lot more impressive when he’s tearing through a top-level heavy like Mir. Or as Cormier himself puts it, “he really doesn’t wanna piss me off.”

Your predictions, please.

Im actually kind of pumped for this perticular match. I got my boy cormier via 3 round savage beatdown. Unless mir can manage to get a good hold of a leg or arm. In which case i will forever retract my statement regarding frank mir being an over-the-hill one-time great turned full-time bloated douche.

Mir has taken some of the worst beatings I have seen in the ufc...I like the guy, but he doesn't have much room to talk. However, I think Cormier will come in a little too aggressive and try to wrestle grapple with ol frankie...frankie indeed by 2nd round sub. Lets go with a knee bar or kimura.

I must say that I whole heartily can get behind everything your screen name stands for, past, present, and future. Well played sir.

Criticize me all you want, but I'm calling it now. Mir by 2nd round submission.
Mir please break Brocks neck- January 15, 2013 at 4:42 pm

Mir hasn't looked good since Carwin decapitated him so im not real sure what he has to feel good about lately. Nog was putting on a clinic until he got sloppy, and he looked bad against a sick and slow Nelson. Cormier should man handle him.
