However I was re-watching UFC 36 last night and I forgot how damn good Mir was when he first burst unto the scene. I know he's looking better in his last two fights but he still doesn't quite have the speed and athleticism he used to have and for this reason I think it makes Mir the biggest underdog.
Thanks for the vid. That's the one I was talking about.

Yes, he's gotten a few KO's but does he have a chance in hell of KOing Nog? ******* Fedor couldn't even do that. Mir's only chance is to take him down and try to stay on top and not get caught in a sub... for 25 minutes.

I really like Frank Mir but I see no way of him winning this fight.
Werdum's BJJ tops both of theirs, fyi.

And no, Mir has no punchers or kickers chance. Nog will never get KO'ed.

I say Mir vs. Big Nog. The only thing Mir is really good at is BJJ, and Nog is better at it. Plus, Nog has pretty good standup.

Cote is also a pretty big underdog. He has said that he's going to walk forward and rely on his power and his chin. Leben did the same thing...

I don't think Fitch is that big of an underdog. He will go to, and lose, a decision IMO.

Florian vs. Huerta could also go either way. I don't see why everyone is all over Florian's nuts all of the sudden. He's a good fighter. They both are. But neither of them are elite fighters and either one can finish it.

Rashad is a decent underdog IMO, but he has a tendency to hold out for a boring decision when I least expect it. I thought Tito was going to smash him, and pretty much did, but he got a draw. He could go the distance, but I sure as hell hope not.
