So... we've decided that mir has no chance huh? once again we have saved the UFC the trouble of actually fighting the fights.

frank Mir is the most inconsistent fighter in the UFC.

It's a 50/50 chance that he gets KO'd in the first or he breaks JDS's arm.

I don't know how inconsistent you can call a guy that's been KO'd in the first round 5 out of 6 times going into a fight with the biggest and best striker he's ever faced.

He's earned his shot, no one can take that away from him but every other HW fighter on that card has a better chance at beating JDS over Mir.

I would give Mir a 1 in 10 chance at beating JDS, if it goes the distance then maybe a 50/50

Exactly this.


JDS is clearly the favourite and has every right to be, but Mir has shown that even when he is down and out he isn't down and out. That said, I do expect JDS to finish him. This won't go to decision that's for sure.

I just dont see Mir having any chance here. He is outmatched so dramatically in the stand up and JDS has shown he has ridiculous TDD. This fight will end either like JDS/Cain or JDS/Carwin either way Frank is getting a brutal beatdown.

I think Cain gets by Bigfoot and Mitrione should have enough to beat Big country.

Yes I would call a fighter who KO’d Cro cop and Nog, out struck Kongo,broke Nogs arm, got waxed by Brandon Vera and beaten half to death by Ian freeman …...INCONSISTENT.


you said it yourself... "ko'd 5 out of 6 times..." + " he's earned his shot".... = inconsistent.

Lets not forget before he got the Kimura of death Mir got outstruck and very very nearly KO'd by Big Nog - JDS is stronger, Faster and htis harder than Nog...

I don't see Mir getting JDS to the mat. I expect him to crumble like he did in the Carwin fight.

The only way this fight would go to the round, where Mir has a chance to win, is if JDS drops him there and if he does Mir will likely be out cold.

This is a classin striker vs. grappler fight but the grappler has shitty takedowns.

JDS by KO in round 1.

Fav Fighters:
BJ
GSP
Askren
JDS
Belcher
Shogun
Fedor
Hendo
Sonnen
