Does Frank Mir vs Alistair Overeem Sound Good?(not confirmed fight)

Both coming off a pretty big losses, mir looked good against cormier even though cormier wasn't 100%. Alot of people think overeem was all hype now but i don't believe it he dropped his hands like an idiot and didn't respect bigfoot silva i think he's going to come back stronger.

This in a way. But I doubt they do that to Frank. That would retire him.

Any new news on Reem? I was figuring he would be back in August or September. Loser of Hunt/JDS would be cool, but I doubt they would be ready to go again that quick. Same with Nog/Werdum. I want to see Roy vs. Reem, but seems like they want Roy in there with Hunr or DC. So that leaves..

Reem vs. Travis Browne?

Mir vs Struve?

I think Overeem wrecks him. Mir just doesn't like getting hit.

Yeah, same here. I'd put a bet on Travis too! I think bigfoot got lucky (took advantage off, whichever) against him because of the foot injury.

No, its because he was poncing around the Octagon like Dominic Cruz. Basically, he injured himself trying to be evasive = He was scared of BigFoot = he deserved to lose.

Note.
I dont like Travis Browne *at all*.

Another fight where Mir will not be able to get it to the ground and will be outmatched standing. I'd rather see them matched with different opponents.

If Mir is to continue fighting, he needs to do some serious work, mainly offensive wrestling, and have a couple lower ranked opponents. He needs to take the fight where it suits him, getting boxed up all the time is not where his skillset needs the fight.

Reem has enough defensive grappling and much too heavy striking for Frank at this time.
