UFC heavyweight Daniel Cormier is known to be a pretty easy-going guy. However, that doesn’t mean he’ll sit idly by if insulted, and to that point Cormier has put Frank Mir in his crosshairs based on a few statements the former champion has made leading up to their April 20 outing.
Cormier recently offered up his thoughts on Mir in an interview with Bleacher Report where he promised to pummel some humility into his UFC on FOX 7 opponent over the fifteen minutes allotted for their match-up.
“There are select few people in this world that can be in a situation that’s supposed to humble you and it just doesn’t happen. I think that’s happened time and time again with Frank. He’s talked about Brock Lesnar and he got beat up by Brock, and he still talks bad about Brock. Case one, Frank should have been humbled by the beating Brock put on him, but it didn’t work.”
“Case two, talked about Shane Carwin and Shane Carwin finished him, still didn’t humble him. Talked about Junior Dos Santos after Junior Dos Santos beat him up. So there are a select few people in this world that when you’re in a situation that’s supposed to humble you, it doesn’t necessarily work out that way. Frank Mir’s one of those guys.”
“To the point of me not being a guy that can finish fights, I’m going to tell you right now and this is 100 percent true—Frank Mir says I can’t finish fights? Okay that’s fine. My intention in this fight is not to finish Frank Mir. I’m going to beat up on Frank Mir for 15 minutes and I’m going to make him stay in that cage with me. If Frank Mir gets finished, it will be because he quit.”
