I know this is a long shot, but I'd like to see him fight Travis Browne.

Mir is deserve the most because he has 3 good wins at this point. KO'd Cro Cop, decision'd Roy Nelson, submitted Big Nog

Cain needs at least 2 good wins to get a title shot, after dropping the title to JDS,

Carwin also need at least 2 good wins to get a title shot, after losting 2 in a row

If Mir doesn't get one it will be hard to get title challenger against JDS/Overeem winner?

Of if no one is ready to challenge for the heavyweight title, we can get Bobby Lashley or Batista into UFC and he will fight either Chieck Kongo, Rob Broughton or Mark Hunt. And hopefully if he win impressively he can get a title shot.

In the current line up Mir is the most deserving which makes me think about the situation. Overeem-JDS is going to happen in the summer which is 5-6 months away. This means Frank is going to take 1 fight either way. The SF HW grand prix taking place earlier this year and the future of the winner is unsure. I'm sure one of these guy's is getting the next shot, if they don't fight each other that is.

Do Browne v Mitrione , so we can find out who is more legit. Meathead got himself all wound up and tense v Kongo, and didn't perform as well as he should've. I still think he could've battered Kongo, if he'd let it all out.

I know Carwin is coming off of two losses, but give him Kongo to find out where both of them be at.

I know there is nothing about Mir there, but the thread has kind of expanded into a general HW one, and I find it hard to suggest anything for him.

Oh yeah, you could also give Carwin a match with Shaub, purely for shits and giggles

Total Tottenham

Supporting - Machida, Edgar, Mitrione, Pickett, Cruickshank, Wiman, Lauzon, Falcao, Belcher, Korean Zombie, Palhares, Hendricks

Frank Mir is a gatekeeper now, he will never beat Overeem, Cain, Carwin or JDS ever. Mir is an amazing fighter, but he is not skilled enough to ever beat any one of the top 4 fighters in the UFC. He has the build and strength, but he's just too far behind the top 4 in terms of mma development, he stagnated for years while Overeem was winning K-1, Junior was becoming an elite striker and Cain was spending countless hours in the gym. Mir takes the sport too casually in comparison to the top guys to do anything, if Mir wanted to be a champ he'd go train with Jackson's camp. He'll make one more push, lose to one of the top 4, have one more gatekeeper fight then have a legends retirement fight (maybe they signed Fedor by that point, I'd watch Mir vs. Fedor).

Certainly not I think he without a doubt needs one more big win. I believe he should be set to fight the winner of the Strikeforce heavyweight tournament or Velasquez if he is not fighting Big Foot.
