Frank Mir Sees Octagon-Rust As A None-Issue Prior To April Fight With Daniel Cormier

Frank Mir’s been forced to the sidelines numerous times due to injuries or delays in scheduled fights.

So, with almost a year between bouts, does Mir have any troubling thoughts concerning Octagon-rust prior to facing Daniel Cormier later this month.

“No, not really,” said Mir, during a recent conference call. “In the heavyweight division, fights get spread out. Once you climb the ladder, it is harder to find matchups that help you move forward in your career.”

Mir was originally scheduled to face Cormier last year in Strikeforce, but a training injury cancelled the bout – and eventually the card completely. His last fight came early in 2012, when he was defeated by then-UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos.
