The JDS/Mir match up is an interesting fight. The closest thing we can find to a weakness in JDS's game is his sub defense (im not saying he has poor defense, its just that his only loss comes from a sub). Im willing to bet that Mir spends a ton of time working on his wrestling between now and then, because getting JDS down and subbing him is pretty much his only shot.

Meathead/Roy is gonna be a sick fight as well.

could you imagine if Mir won somehow, I'd want to see that just to see everyone crap themselves at how unlikely it was to happen.

Cool, they've tried to keep the card intact and this is the best they can do, they're not going to drop the HW thing, people are looking forward to it.

Awesome to see Mir in a title fight, he's the only guy worthy. Shame that JDS is an awful fight for him.

If this is correct you know JDS agreed to it happily and will view this as a REVENGE FIGHT. You broke my mentors' arm now I break you. It's my time!

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Yeah JDS is not an emotional fighter but revenge may be a factor in this fight, it happened recently.

Wouldnt be surprised if its not about revenge for Junior though, Nog didnt tap and we all know what happens, JDS is very humble.

A JDS fight is stylistically a worst fight for Mir than a Cain fight.

For Cain fight, chances are higher than for Mir to pull off a submission IF Cain decided to toy with his guard and attempt to control him on the ground.

For JDS, he will definitely keep the fight standing and try to Knock Mir out. And with his TDD, I doubt Mir is able to take the fight to the ground for him to use his submission skill. Of course, not forgetting JDS has a "implied" good BJJ as well.

But yes. I agree that Mir is possibly the next most deserving guy in the UFC HW division right now to get a title shot base on record wise. Perhaps, JDS also wanted Mir just to avenge for what Mir did to Big Nog (although it really isn't Mir fault for Nog not tapping)

I love Mir, but he was rocked bad by Big Nog, and JDS is only faster and harder with his hands. Sorry Frank, you would've taken Lesnar in a rematch for the belt...but JDS will turn your lights out.

(god that really hurt me to say!)

If Mir gets him down he'll finish JDS for sure, but standing it'll be all JDS.

Nelson/Mitrione would turn into a snoozefest I fear.

But if Mir pulls off that Judo throw he pulled on Nelson, I'll be a happy girl lol
