Frank Mir Injured, Forced Out of Daniel Cormier Fight on November 3rd

Former UFC heavyweight champion, Frank Mir has been forced out of his highly anticipated cross-over fight with Strikeforce heavyweight grand-prix winner, Daniel Cormier on November 3rd in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

It’s unknown whether a replacement for Mir has been found. Sources indicated that a knee injury could be to blame for Mir’s withdrawal.

Mir has looked impressive of late, piling on the weight to make a devastating run at the world title once again. Wins over Roy Nelson, Mirko Cro Cop and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira secured him a title shot where he fell short and was pounded out by the champion, Junior dos Santos.
