Mir latest main event injury
September 18, 2012
In what is beginning to be the norm in the world of Zuffa, another fighter must pull out of a main event due to an injury. This time its Frank Mir as he was set to face Daniel Cormier in a Strikeforce event that was set for Oklahoma City in November.
MMA Junkie reports that Mir may have knee injury which caused him to pull out. The spate of recent injuries has caused Zuffa to scramble and book events on the fly. With about 6 weeks out, Strikeforce still has time to find a replacement for Mir.
Another injury, another replacement must be found. Mir was going to be the first UFC crossover to Strikeforce but we will see if Mir’s replacement will be another UFC Heavyweight. At least with the latest main event injury, there is time to find a suitable replacement from either UFC or Strikeforce.
