I think Mir is just the highest on the list of not favorable options to fill in for this fight. If Cain vs. JDS was a barn burner, it would be a no brainer.
Plain and simple, Cain vs. JDS 2 at this point in time isn't interesting, it isn't an easy sell to very many fans which does not maximize PPV potential.
Mir is on a 3 fight win streak, not an impressive one but he's the best option out of the available fighters right now. The fact that his sub of Nog was good despite almost being knocked out and the fact that he is a former champion work in his favor.
