Mir poses a legitimate threat to Cain, his striking is better than Cains i believe, and his new added size and strength poses problems also. Mir has a great BJJ game from his back, which could also potentially cause Cain problems.

I actually think Mir has a solid chance - i could seriously see him hurting Velasquez standing at some point in the bout. People drastically underate Frank Mir, he is easily int he top 5 Heavyweights in the UFC and i have him beating Carwin if they where to rematch. Nelson is a solid middle of the road guy and Mir completely dominated him in all aspects of the fight.

But the real threat to the UFC HW Champion is clearly The Reem.

FOREVER SUPPORTING

Brock Lesnar
The Reem
Frank Mir
Matt Mitrione
Shogun
Rampage
Matt Hughes
Vitor Belfort
Rousimar Palhares
Gray Maynard

I also believe that Mir is tough for Cain stylistically, also he can afford to cut 5-10lb and still be a big, powerful guy.

However, JDS trumps both.

Mir and Nelson would get COMPLETELY dominated by cain. Like seriously make them look like C grade fighters.
JDS is a credible threat to the title, still see cain beating him though. Carwin has a punchers chance but cain is a huge favourite for that fight IMO.
Only other guys posing a chance are werdum/overeem, and both would still be underdogs in my humble opinion.
I vouch for cain being a long term champion also.

I know i may get some heat for this, but Travis Browne looked real good out there and has looked good in his past fight as well. I think he could give Cain a run for his money in the standup department.

To whomever keeps deleting my sig, the size is 408x220 the rules state it must be smaller than 420x220, thus i am not breaking the rules.

Is Cain even training yet? When Jones decides to move up he will be packing on lbs of muscle to do it. He'll also enjoy a ten inch reach advantage.

I would bet on Frank in that fight, probably get 2:1 too.
Cain took Brock Lesnar down lol. he would take mir down like its Mirs first day wrestling.

granted, i might be in the minority here... but, I think Browne's striking is quite sloppy. he's a big guy and awkward, so he has gotten away with it so far.

cain would definitely take Mir down whenever he felt like it.

although, how well would Cain control Mir? lesnar was able to control Mir and neutralize his jitz. I would like to see this fight. I think Mir has a better chance against Cain than he does JDS

I dont... i think Cain would be the next worst matchup for Mir except Brock.

Cain would take him down and beat the **** out of him. Standing he would take mirs legs away. The pace he pushes would have Mir gassing after the first round. This is a 5 round fight and by the second round Mir would be struggling to breath.

It would be a 1 sided fight. I guarantee it.
