I honestly cant see Mir finishing Big Country, if JDS couldnt after landing those bombs then i doubt Mir can. He may be able to get it down and get a sub but Nelsons a big guy and is a decent grappler. If there is a finish in this fight it will be Big Country TKO in the 2nd, but im going to say Frank Mir by submission in the 3rd or a UD.

Brock Lesnar the baddest man on the planet?..... sure he is

This is an interesting fight for me. Probably the most interesting one on the card. Mir's striking always surprises me but Nelson's is highly underrated. He managed to hang in there with JDS for 3 rounds and also landed some solid shots and cut JDS.

I am more interested in the ground game. It has been awhile, but Nelson has beaten Mir in grappling before.

Do you have something against Mitrione? He'd get killed by either of these guys, he isn't near ready for them.

Big country by UD. Better stand up and better ground game in my opinion.

Nelson by submission.

For the record, I think Meathead would beat Mir at this point.
