He IS powerful very. But his hands cant take his power. Once your hand breaks its very hard to hit hard. His hands broke on big foot, he broke them early on against the War master, and it looks like they will continue to to break, and once broken he can no longer deliver full force punches.

Oh, that's what you're getting at. I guess only time will tell, maybe we're going to have the Brian Bowles of HW.

Frank probably takes this fight if his chin isn't so far gone that he just can't take any punches now. Cormier doesn't react well to getting hit and will be in danger of being submitted on the ground.

Mo is stupid if he truly thinks DC could retire Mir.

Mir subbed Lesnar (87), went on to become the first guy to TKO Nog (92), talked crap about Lesnar and got violently put to his place by him (100). What did he do? Went on to earn another title shot. Demoralizing him to the point that he retires is impossible imo.

I had no idea that King Mo fought Mark Kerr. I figured he was dead before Mo hit highschool

Well its not his offense that limits him, it's his striking defense and a chin that's not untouchable.

Mir is not the most powerful quickest or most technical striker and his wrestling/TDs are average. He'll never get Cormier down.

He'll just keep swinging till one of them connects with a big shot and I think that favors Cormier IMO.

When Mir decided to mass up and go up to 265 it was a huge mistake! After that he have looked so so so slow.He is way to heavy and he`s paying the price for that.

He should have stayed on the weight he was at..atleast he where lighter(better head and foot movements) and his striking was a bigger threat.(same that koed Nog)

No way Mir is getting Cormier down.His takedown defence is to good and Mir doesnt have any explosiveness at all..

Cormier is going to TKO or KO Mir.

He was, and thats the only reason Mo won. He is pretty silly for even claiming such a thing. Be like someone fighting Tommy Morrison now and claiming to "retire" him.
