Carwin was clearly the thicker of the two and more solid if you watch the video. They were almost even in height, maybe slight edge to Carwin.
Mir states that he doesnt cut for the fights, he trains to be 265. Carwin stated for this fight he cut from 290 at the begining of camp, down to 275 for weighins. So Mir will likely be 265 in the cage and Carwin will be 275. Should be good stuff.

I really don't know what to make of this fight, It could go 3 full, it could go 30 seconds. I know I will enjoy watching it and if Mir wins the first two words out of his mouth will be Brock Lesnar. Same for Carwin though so not sure it matters but I am not even sure who can afford a loss more now that HW is becoming stacked.

Mir looks good, no doubt. Carwin is clearly a bigger man. Look at his structure, he is very big boned. Look at the difference in hand size. I bet Carwin shows up looking full and big, he probably spent the afternoon carb loading and rehydrating. I'm a Carwin fan, but this fight is too close to call. I really wanted to see Carwin fight Lesnar.

Carwin is still much stronger as his back is much broader than Mir's. Mir is exceeding all expectations I ever had for his physique though. I think he needed to get this big to beat Carwin and I am picking Mir in this fight but Carwin is still far stronger and will have a much harder cannon in this fight than Mir. But I think Mir can scramble with Carwin and will find a submission. I love this fight!

A groan of tedium escapes me...

Mir sure has come a long way since his fat days

It is good to see him looking in great shape as he does have talent. Unfortunately for him he will have to fight Lesnar a 3rd time after he beats Carwin tomorrow.

Brock Lesnar 6'2 lol, that site is getting some numbers mixed up.
they make a pretty good case... why would the vikings list him at 6'2" if he was actually taller? and unlike the UFC they have no reason to inflate his stats, he was just another player to them.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

Mir is more cut, but Carwin is way thicker.

thought Carwin looked a little soft, I think the long lay off has affected him.

I see big differences between the shoulder and biceps. I'm not big on anatomy. Can somebody educate me as to what each muscle is strong for? Pushing? Pulling? etc

Mir deffinetly looked more ripped than Carwin.
I don't know how that will translate when they both get in the octagon. i can only asume Mir will be bigger, but i deffinetly think Carwin will be stronger.
Mir has clearly improved his strenghth level, but Carwin is still the stronger fighter tho.
Annyway, can't wait to see the fight.
