Daniel Cormier Vs. Frank Mir: Fight Likely For November 3rd In Oklahoma

The Strikeforce fight between Daniel Cormier and Frank Mir has been scheduled for November 3rd. Mookie Alexander of Bloody Elbow reports.

The heavyweight battle with former UFC champion Frank Mir (16-6) facing Strikeforce Grand Prix tournament winner Daniel Cormier (10-0) will take place Nov. 3 in Oklahoma, according to a Showtime source and sources in the Cormier camp.

Cormier fights out of American Kickboxing Academy in San Jose, and this will definitely rank among one of the biggest fights in his career. Strikeforce is a San Jose-based promotion, despite being owned by Zuffa (which owns the UFC as well). He'll be fighting in a spot where he'll probably have home-crowd advantage in Oklahoma State, where he wrestled in college.

Cormier is 10-0 so far as an MMA fighter, and this is likely his last fight in Strikeforce before potentially making a move to the UFC. Cormier won his last match against Josh Barnett on May 19th, winning in an unanimous decision in a five round fight. Cormier broke his hand during that fight and has needed surgery, but it seems like he's ready enough tfor another bout in two months time.
