Daniel Cormier appears to be on a collision course with former UFC heavyweight champ Frank Mir.
After defeating Dion Staring at "Strikeforce: Marquardt vs. Saffiedine," Cormier announced that he had signed a UFC contract, and he would be facing Mir in April.
The two heavyweights were originally slated to headline the Strikeforce finale, but an injury in training forced Mir to withdraw from the bout.
Mir, who is coming off a TKO loss to Junior Dos Santos, will be looking to rebound and reposition himself as a top contender for the UFC title.
With wins over Josh Barnett and Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva, Cormier has already proven himself as
one of the best heavyweights in the world.
He'll finally get an opportunity to show off his skills on the big stage when he makes his UFC debut against Mir.
Here is a head to toe breakdown of the upcoming heavyweight tilt.
