Cormier cruises through third, easily beats Mir

Daniel Cormier made his long awaited Octagon debut tonight (Sat., April 20, 2013), as Frank Mir welcomed him to the big leagues in the co-main event of the UFC on Fox 7: "Henderson vs. Melendez" event at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. The bout represented Cormier's first true test on the big stage under the bright lights and could very well make him the next top contender in the heavyweight division.

In between the second and third rounds, the referee toweled both guys off and Cormier expressed displeasure with this because he didn't want Mir to get any more time to rest. One would assume this would lead to his pushing the pace to start the final frame.

Instead, it was Mir who came out quick, looking to land big kicks and pushing forward with far more aggression. He was landing those shots too, having great success with a body kick and and elbow before Cormier chose to go back to his bread and butter, the clinch.

The big issue for Mir, though? Not enough speed.

Indeed, Cormier used the clinch to battle back and when he pushed off, his offense looked more effective if only because he got it off much quicker. Another clinch went nowhere and the referee reset the two in the center of the cage with 2:30 remaining and color commentator Joe Rogan saying this was "for his career."

That being Mir, of course.

But instead of working the striking game that was successful early in the round, Mir initiated a clinch. This was a disastrous strategy, as Cormier once again went back to holding on and simply cruising his way to the judges favorable scorecards.

Once again, a bad strategy did Mir in.

Cormier well ahead of Mir after two rounds

Daniel Cormier made his long awaited Octagon debut tonight (Sat., April 20, 2013), as Frank Mir welcomed him to the big leagues in the co-main event of the UFC on Fox 7: "Henderson vs. Melendez" event at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. The bout represented Cormier's first true test on the big stage under the bright lights and could very well make him the next top contender in the heavyweight division.

Cormier was dominant in round one but decided not to rest on his laurels and opened up his offense with a big flying kick to start round two. It took everyone by surprise, even if it didn't come anywhere close to landing.

Hey, at least we know he's capable of it.

Instead, the bout went back to the fence, where Cormier clinched up and pushed Mir against the fence. Interestingly enough, the size advantage Mir thought he had that would help carry him through actually appeared to be more Cormier's favor.

Or at least he was using leverage better, having his way with Mir physically.

They finally reset and Mir got the chance to work his striking a bit more but Cormier stayed patient and landed the cleaner shots, though that wasn't much.

Still, through two, he was well ahead on the score cards.

Cormier dominates Mir in the opening round

Daniel Cormier made his long awaited Octagon debut tonight (Sat., April 20, 2013), as Frank Mir welcomed him to the big leagues in the co-main event of the UFC on Fox 7: "Henderson vs. Melendez" event at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. The bout represented Cormier's first true test on the big stage under the bright lights and could very well make him the next top contender in the heavyweight division.

The first round opened with Mir throwing a lot of kicks, both to the head and body. Cormier kept distance, avoiding taking any damage until he decided to come in to clinch up against the cage.

Once he got there, his relative lack of size -- the one thing Mir said he was focused on and used to poke fun in the lead up to the bout -- didn't appear to be an issue at all. In fact, he was landing hard punches to the head and body all throughout their time spent on the fence.

When he wanted to push off and reset in the middle, that's what he did.

His only slip up in the opening frame happened to be, well, a slip. He went to the mat briefly, Mir tried to capitalize by jumping a guillotine, Cormier's neck proved too small, and that was that.

It was clear that Mir would have a hard time of it over the next two rounds.
