Of course I've seen Duffee's other fights. His stand-up is good, but it is not much better than Mir. Mir has out-struck far better guys than anyone Duffee has fought outside Alistair. He put a striking clinic on against Nogueira and had the perfect gameplan to out-strike Cheick Kongo, who is a superb kickboxer. The Russow example was just a quick point, he was looking good up until that point, but it was still Mike Russow, not exactly high level competition. Mir's Boxing is excellent, and he's proven that against some excellent strikers.
No, of course I'm not saying Mir could stand with Alistair. I'm not a moron. My initial point was about Mir being a better version of Werdum. Mir has a sick guard. It's not quite as good as Werdum's, but the gap in the stand-up is far larger than the gap in grappling. At no point did I claim Mir could stand with Overeem.

2 real fighters enter the UFC and walk through it with ease, now there can cruching is over the only thing left is for them to fight each other and thats it UFC HW division is left woth nothing.
why would you want to have to watch the best HW's in the world on PPV anyway when SF give you them for free? you already lost all the best FW and BM fights, now they are nothing more than pre-lims on the under card to UFC events that few will ever see again.
Absolute drivel. This sort of stuff is on a par with ZUFFA Zombies, if not worse. I would break it down point by point, but there's no point. Take your Anti-Dana Glasses off and look at things objectively. Strikeforce's HW division is stupidly over-rated. Outside Overeem and Fedor they have nothing. The only other SF HW that would scrape into the Top 10 would be Werdum, and then he'd get wrecked stylistically by pretty much everyone in that Top 10, especially the guys I've put above him.
Guy, look at where the left hand lands, it's a stiff shot right on the button. That messes up your equilibrium. Some dude broke it down technically on here just after the fight. Brock going into a twist wasn't because he has no heart or chin, that shot completely ****ed with his equilibrium.
Really CBA with this anymore though. Let's get back to the Dynamite!! show. Sakuraba's about to get KTFO by Zaromskis sadly.
