Daniel Cormier is not to be taken lightly by anyone. The Olympic wrestler and Strikeforce HWGP winner is one of the best and brightest in the business, and depending on who you ask about his physique, is fighting a weight-class above where he should be — Fedor style.

It was wrestling practice at American Kickboxing Academy and Cormier -- as one might expect from a former captain of the US Olympic wrestling team -- was leading the half-dozen gym members.

Frank Mir doesn't want people to get worked up over him saying he'd like maim Daniel Cormier at UFC on FOX 7 at HP Pavilion on Saturday.
Mir told FOXSports.com he could have much worse intentions.
"My mentality is that I want to fight to fight," Mir said. "I am looking for a submission. I didn't say, 'I wanted to beat you down for 15 minutes and punch...
