UFC on Fox 7 delivered one of, if not the most exciting cards in UFC history. Eight knockouts including head kicks, flying knees, elbows, punches and just about anything you can think of were all out on show last night. Interestingly enough the co-main event of the evening was a little less than expected.

Daniel Cormier and Frank Mir fought a cagey battle for three rounds, in a fight which almost everyone called as either a KO for DC or a submission for Mir. So what happened? Was Cormier injured? Was Mir just in great shape? Well according to Cormier, he had ‘Octagon jitters’ ahead of his UFC debut and it affected his performance.

Check out DC’s post fight interview with Ariel Helwani and stay tuned to Lowkick!

    Frank is just too big and slow. He needs to shed 25 pounds. DC was way faster. His other flaw is his over confidence in his striking. He reminds me of BJ – seems to have his own ideas about what he needs and keeps doing it despite not getting anywhere.

    I liked what I saw from DC, the guy has some quick hands! When he had Frank on the cage and he worked the stomach with those quick punches, pretty sweet.

    I felt Frank could of put up a much better fight, but for some reason he looked really tired towards the end of the 1 round.

    Cormier showed that he was intimidated by Frank's ground game….He just wanted to control him against the fence and avoid going to the mat.

    Franks obviously won the psycological edge.
