I think Mir is highly overrated by his fans. He hasn't been a top level fighter in some time. He is terribly inconsistent and he just folds very easily. He has power as he should for a bulky heavyweight but his striking is not all that great and his wrestling just flat out sucks.

He is the Michael Bisping of Heavyweight. He beats middle of the road fighters but he loses his big fights.

I think this fight will be similar to Mir/Nog2 without the brain freeze at the end.
Josh will out strike him on the feet and when it goes to the ground Mir will try to play bjj and take a terrible beating for it.

You seriously think he isn't? The guy put on like 40-50 pounds of muscle in less than a year. It made him a worse fighter too because now he is slow as shit and stiffer on the ground.

Funny that he did that after losing to Brock and for his up coming fight with Carwin... neither of which are still in the UFC. I think he just likes being big now... cuz a smart fighter would slim back down.

Frank mir might have a little more lean mass now, but 40 to 50 pounds? No. He was over 250 back when he was fighting guys like Simms and Sylvia. He's on TRT now and still in the 250's. They guy never fought at LHW. The 2nd Mir fight was actually one of the smallest weigh ins he ever registered.
