Not sure why when Shields came over has any bearing on the point that fighters from other orgs have not done as well in the UFC. I really think/hope DC will do well, but I am going to wait to see how his first fight goes before I jump on the bandwagon. I think Mir will be a good test. He handled Barnett easily and if he does the same to Mir then he is going to make a big impact in the UFC I think.
Yea, I guess it has little bearing.
I just see Barnett and Bigfoot as at least just as good as Mir. I think both would beat him. So I see this fight vs. Mir as not much if any of a step up. He trashed 2 guys who are similarly ranked as Mir. Who probably matched up better stylistically than Mir does.
