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.
No amount of wrestling is going to help Mir, Carwin a life long wrestler couldn't even come close to getting him down. Mir isn't going to had a sick single into his game any time soon. You do have a point though about JDS' only shown weakness so far has been his sub defense. It will be interesting because we seen that Mir has developed some heart when he recovered in the fight with Nog something he's never done before. And he recovered right into a sub, so I'm interested to see what happens if JDS hurts him and follows him to the ground.

People say that like Mir really gave him a chance to tap, as soon as Mir rolled him and got his hips low he torqued his arm so fast there really wasn't that much time. Don't get me wrong, it was stupid not to tap, but it's not like there was some epic battle or like Tate v Rousey where Tate was clearly caught in an obvious position. Mir locked Nog up and Nog rolled him and then right back over, a second then it was broken, it happened pretty quickly.

And Mir should be to blame because he went for it 100% so that Nog wouldn't have had a chance to escape.. Keen in mind, Mir was rocked too, he probably wasn't even aware of what he was doing.

JDS/Mir - Mir has no change in standup in my books. He can pull of some really crafty sub but I doubt it.
Fan of both guys. But I just think that JDS is on different level.

Cain/Silva - I see this fight just to comapare who is better Cain or Cormier? I think the fight will look similar. I see Cain dominating Silva even more. Good comeback fight for Cain. Im happy

Nelson/Meathead - I think that Matt could take this. Im worried that Nelson will be cut after that.

I don't hate Mir anymore so seeing him get Knocked out for the sixth time of his career won't be the joyful occasion it once was.

Mir handled himself well in his standup for Big Nog and Nelson, kinda put on a clinic it was that impressive, but JDS has too much power and those combinations he throws are on another level to anyone Frank has faced. If Frank was facing anyone else for the belt...he'd have a shot.

I don't think Mir can even get JDS against the cage letalone to the ground. On the feet this is pretty one-sided, goodnight Frank.

The good news for Mir is I'm sure his wrestling is top notch having been training for Velasquez, and if he can make JDS chase him and clinch with him he'll do okay.

But really if Junior connects once with one of his overhand sledgehammers Mir's done.

I doubt this fight will make it past the first half of the first quarter.

You nailed it. There's no way JDS is following him to the ground after what he did to Nog either. I don't see how Mir has a chance here.
