Lets hope Frank learned how to take people down or this is going to be a short fight.

Only way Mir wins is if he pulls a Werdum and JDS dives in sloppily like Fedor. JDS just needs to remember the bouncing head rule. If Mir's head bounces off the mat then he's most likely good to go to finish him.

JDS is like the Iceman back in the days. Relies purely on his fists which is EXTREMELY rare these days in the ever diverse world of MMA.

Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

That would be a hell of a fight. The UFC should really look into making that happen. I have no idea who'd win.

Mir has shown some nice judo flips lately, so thats the only way I see him taking Dos Santos down. Mir just doesn't have the explosiveness for traditional takedowns. Will be rooting him though!

No doubt...I really hope we get to see Reem and JDS got toe to toe eventually.

Mir will have no issues getting JDS to the ground. Has everyone already forgotten how easily he got Big Nog to the ground and subbed him? Frank is a true master of the game and I bet he will employ a similar strategy against JDS

New game at the carnival named after Mir's post JDS fight:
"Whack-A-Mir"- keep knocking the little Mir bobblehead down until it doesn't pop back up!

I am the foremost authority on my opinion.

Good interview, I like Mir in general but I don't think he has a good chance here.

Everyone has a chance, and IF he can get JDS down it'll be his fight, but I don't think he can do it before he gets hit and I don't think he can deal with the power that JDS has.

IF Mir can get JDS down - and taking down JDS is undoubtedly more difficult than taking down Big Nog - none of us know for certain that it will be his fight. This is because none of us know very much about Junior's ground game whatsoever. He could be better than Big Nog on the mat for all we know. Frankly, I'd love for Mir to somehow take this fight to the ground... I've been anxious to see Junior's ground work for a long time now.
