Mir poses a legitimate threat to Cain, his striking is better than Cains i believe, and his new added size and strength poses problems also. Mir has a great BJJ game from his back, which could also potentially cause Cain problems.
I actually think Mir has a solid chance - i could seriously see him hurting Velasquez standing at some point in the bout. People drastically underate Frank Mir, he is easily int he top 5 Heavyweights in the UFC and i have him beating Carwin if they where to rematch. Nelson is a solid middle of the road guy and Mir completely dominated him in all aspects of the fight.
But the real threat to the UFC HW Champion is clearly The Reem.
