Tomorrow, on the UFC's seventh FOX card, the highly anticipated heavyweight bout between Daniel Cormier and Frank Mir will finally happen. After a year in the making, the talking will cease and the punching will start.
Up until this point, these two gents have kept things very professional, and dare I say, friendly. The gloves have come off a little early though, as evidenced by this video interview Ariel Helwani did earlier this evening. Here's a little touch of what was said:
Daniel Cormier: It's huge. I'm having to stand here with my hands in my pockets because I just want to grab Frank. I really just want to grab him.
Ariel Helwani: Thankfully I'm here [laughs].
Daniel Cormier: Well, you can't really do anything to stop us.
Ariel Helwani: How will it end on Saturday?
Daniel Cormier: Daniel Cormier, still undefeated, man.
Frank Mir: I disagree greatly, but the advantage I have is that I can go out there and show him, so on Saturday, when he grabs me, I'll be taking one of his arms home.
Daniel Cormier: That's not going to happen Frank. You're not just going to break my arm. What am I gonna do? Give it to you? Seriously, you say that all the time, 'Oh I'm just gonna break his arm.' Frank, you can't just break my arm.
Frank Mir: Well, if you don't tap fast enough...
Daniel Cormier: Enough talking Frank, we're gonna get this shit over with. We're done.
