There will be a ton of humble pie eaten by most after this fight, I am baffled and mind f***ed looking at the poll and reading this thread. I thought the fight favored Mir but figured everyone would be 50/50 on it but to favor Josh?
When the only fight you have lost that wasn't a title fight in almost 7 years was to Cormier I am not writing you off. Mir was on his way blah blah blah, truth is he still knocked Nog's block off and then took his arm home off and put it on the mantle.
Quit telling me what Mir has done wrong to make your points give me some kind of example of what Josh has done so right. he submitted Sergei? Sergei sucks he is a solid striker with a brief resemblance of TD defense, Brett Rogers who also lost to UFC wash out Eddie Sanchez?
Please somebody give me some example of something that Josh has done to justify picking him.
EDIT: Mir's chin is suspect? Why cause Carwin and JDS knocked him out? Never mind Nog, Cro Cop and Roy Nelson couldn't get it done. The only guys to knock him out in 5 years are either elite strikers who knock out iron chinned kick boxers or 265 lb power punchers. I can see how you would think that a submission wrestler who has knocked out exactly one well past his prime fighter could knock him out. makes sense.
