Morning Report : Frank Mir Injured, Out of Strikeforce Bout Opposite Daniel Cormier

By Shaun Al-Shatti – Staff Writer

This is beyond unbelievable. UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir suffered an undisclosed injury in training and will now be forced to withdraw from his cross-promotional clash against Strikeforce heavyweight grand prix champion Daniel Cormier. MMAJunkie.comfirst confirmed the news late Tuesday night.

Mir, of course, was tapped to become the first active UFC fighter to fight a champion under the Strikeforce banner. The bout was meant to serve as Cormier’s final fight in Strikeforce before crossing over into the UFC. Strikeforce officials are currently working on locating a replacement opponent.

I really am speechless at this point. Within the past few weeks, Dan Henderson, Erik Koch,Rampage Jackson, Jose Aldo, and now Frank Mir have all fallen victim to this injury epidemic, slashing and burning a majority of the upcoming autumn fight schedule with them. Every week it’s a new disaster, and every time you think we’re finally in the clear and there couldn’t possibly be any more injuries, someone else bites the dust.

Who knows how Zuffa salvages this one. At the rate guys are dropping like flies, there’s apparently a very good chance we’ll be back in this same boat next month. Even if this may just be a ridiculous of run of bad luck, it’s hard to not be frustrated with such continual disappointment.

Seriously, anyone else need a drink? First round is on me.
