Frank Mir Injured, Out of November Strikeforce Fight With Daniel Cormier


(“Easy, Bubba. Easy. Okay, okay, tap tap tap…TAP! TAP! AHHHH FUUUUUUUCK!! Damn it! I have a fight coming up, you asshole! Why did you do that? Why?!?”)

And so, the 2012 UFC injury bug — which is now thought to be the result of a top-secret government experiment — escapes from the eight walls of the Octagon, and goes forth to inflict suffering on the rest of humanity. As first reported by Morency Sports TV, Frank Mir has been forced to withdraw from his November 3rd Strikeforce meeting with Daniel Cormier, due to an injury. MMAJunkie has confirmed the report, and says that Mir’s injury might be knee-related.

The heavyweight stunt-booking was scheduled to be Cormier’s last appearance in Strikeforce before moving to the UFC, so hopefully Zuffa will be able to hustle up a new opponent for him to keep his transition on schedule. Nothing has been reported yet, so I’m just going to throw out some names: Arlovski. Bonnar. Laupua. Just stop me if my matchmaking genius begins to overwhelm you.

We’ll update you when we know more.

I have it on a confirmed source that it was a third degree anterior separation of his haircut.

From now I on there should be a rule that says if you pull out of a fight due to a 'leg injury' it must require surgery or you must have a broken bone.

@12oz and when he does I have no doubt at all that you will remind me of this.

I can't break my adulthood perfect streak of having a smartass dickish remark for everything.
So yes, I will certainly remind you of ol' Tater's demise.

HOLY SHIT!!!
You can RE-RENOUNCE your ban on the reply section. It appears as though the problem has been rectified. Thanks BG.

Ha oh man if that overinflated bastard drops dead anytime soon I'm gonna feel bad now.
The12ozCurls- September 19, 2012 at 9:32 am
It would not be your fault.
Well, maybe a little.

But clearly he IS gonna die soon.

Avast ye swabs! Let the epic booking of the Tater macthup happen. And give the Tater a trained falcan to assist.
(BTW it's international talk like a pirate day mother fuckers)

@alf
I heard Tater has a heart problem. Ya, they can't find it.

@ 12oz Cormier would come in around - 3million. Fun as hell - but no $$ to be made on that one :) Except possibly in a dead-pool.

Mike Russow!
The12ozCurls- September 19, 2012 at 8:51 am
This is SOOOOOOO obvious.
The correct answer for Mir's replacement is TATER WILLIAMS!

Are either Arlovski or Sylvia able to get out of their ONE FC contracts if the UFC comes calling? If not, I'd go with Travis Browne. Or ... What's Mark Hunt doing these days? Maybe Struve?
Fried Taco- September 19, 2012 at 6:47 am
You forgot the obvious: Sylvia.
J.Jones- September 19, 2012 at 6:36 am
HELL YES with the Stephen King reference, Goldstein.
Enricho Palazzo- September 19, 2012 at 6:18 am
Travis Browne.
