UFC on Fox 7 looms just days away and today on MMA's Great Debate Radio, two fighters from the card join the show, as Daniel Cormier and Matt Brown are featured as guests.

Following an undefeated run through Strikeforce, including his victory in the heavyweight grand prix, Cormier will finally make his UFC debut this weekend.

Challenging Cormier will be former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir, who looks to reestablish himself in the division following a loss to Junior Dos Santos in his last fight in 2012. 

Cormier will address Mir's recent comments about his finishing ability as well as his continued efforts to help save wrestling in the Olympics.

Also on the show today, UFC welterweight Matt Brown stops by to discuss his upcoming fight against former Strikeforce fighter Jordan Mein.

Brown was originally scheduled to meet Dan Hardy at UFC on Fox 7, but now gets a late replacement instead. He'll comment on the switch and why he believes Mein is actually a more dangerous opponent.
