Fight shouldn't be for a title. Winner of this should fight winner of Cain/Nog for the interim assuming Brock is still out.

Either guy against Brock for the title is great. But at this point, why does Mir get a shot at Carwin for the title? I just see this as Mir's record getting "padded" ( He is earning the wins, just saying, it's not world class competition he's beating besides dead Nog.)

That's just a problem it looks like I'll have to deal with... Not only has Mir not submitted anyone hard to submit in MMA

I guess this matchup just doesn't intrigue me at all yet Down the road It would have. I was looking more forward to Kongo vs Mir to be honest.

IF this is for a title SHOT, then I like it! But the Interim title thing has diluted the UFC before, and it will just do it again.

I REALLY wish Brock would vacate the title, so that #1 there would be less rush to get him back, therefore also relieving the insane pressure that is likely on him right now. and #2, so there would be NO MORE INTERIM.

I dont know that Mir really deserves a shot at any kind of heavyweight strap at the moment, but Carwin definetely doesnt so it makes me happy to see him have to face some real competition before he gets an actual shot. I really hope that Brock actually comes back soon so that we can get back to having an actual champion and sort this mess out. Brock being out of the mix right now is going to end up knocking some deserivng guys out of title contention before they get there shot. Cain and JDS already deserve shots at the title, but they are both about to face some very tough competition. In my opinion the JDS/Yvel fight is a toss up and I might even lean towards Yvel. The Cain/Nog fight is tough to call, but I would have to favor Nog based upon experience and overall skill. I do not want to see Cain and JDS sent to the back of the line, but I think that is very likely what is about to happen.

I dont see Mir deserving a shot i think they are trying to ride the hype of him maybe posing a come back fighting what they portrayed as the top contender in Carwin...

Gotta go with Mir on this one because he's the interim champ of all times for the UFC. Better believe if there is an interim title on the line it's gonna end up around Mir's waist.

Haha so true.

Besides if Lesnar is out for a long time you know the belt will be defended and that's when Nog/Cain comes in.
