I realise they both weighed in at 265 but Mir seemed to look leaner imo and because of that i think he may weigh in more tomorrow. Im so pumped for this fight, im a huge Mir nuthugger and have been since he fought Tavern at ufc 34. I have a feeling he tko's Carwin in the first round tomorrow and i really hope im not wrong. This imo is the hardest fight to call tomorrow but i give the edge to Mir

WAR MIR!!!

It's amazing how good Mir looks. He's a beast. I still don't think he's anywwhere near as strong as Carwin. and Lesnar would throw them both out the ring at the same time...opps..wrong sport..lol

I thought Carwin looked thicker up top, but Mir was clearly the more solid of the two. And definitely taller... we all knew Shane's 6 foot 5 billing was over-the-top, and this more or less confirmed it. Not quite sure why UFC doesn't just bill him as the same height as Mir or Lesnar, as he's not too far off. Am I missing something, or is 6 foot 3 considered 'short' these days?

I think Carwin still looks bigger, broader shoulders. Mir is huge though, can't wait for this fight.

Thats a new tat on Carwin too isn't it, covering up that band he had before?

Mur and Carwin are both about 6'1." Lesnar's approximately 6'2," according to celebheights.com:

I think I am missing something, I dont really see how Mir is bigger by just looking at these pictures. He definitely got more muscle on now, but to say hes bigger then carwin??

Looks like Mir is trying the horsemeat diet.

Dude bulked up fast. So fast that even Overeem is impressed and is wondering just what kind of horsemeat Frank Mir scarfs down.

Mir has a very large frame, but until after his loss at UFC100 he never really took strength and conditioning seriously. Now that he finally has it was easy to put on the lbs because his body can accomodate it.

His gains were basically "noob gains." Whenever someone picks up a weight for the first time and has a decent diet, they can gain anywhere from 15-30 pounds in a matter of months. Its not that his body couldn't accomodate it before. That said, Carwin is naturally larger and broader built than Mir. Just look at the width of Carwin's back and the size of his calves.

I've my doubts that Mir or Carwin are 6 foot 1. I'm 6 foot 1, and I can't see myself stacking eye-to-eye with those two. Besides, both stand fairly tall over Dana White, who's listed at around 5 foot 10/11. And I'd agree, no way is Lesnar 6 foot 2. Looks like a legitimate 6 foot 3 to me. But hey, I guess it's impossible to tell until you're actually standing next to these behemoths.

I think the 6'2" estimate is pretty darn close.

Compare John Cena and Lesnar at 2:07 in this clip:


Cena is approx. 6'.5." Lesnar does appear to be about 1.5" taller. Both are in tennis shoes.

In these photos, Lesnar appears to be at least 3" taller than Couture:






I believe both Randy Couture and Fedor are 5'11," 3" shorter than Lesnar:




edit: here's the youtube link in case I didn't embed the video properly:

I didn't realise the UFC were claiming Carwin was 6'5 anyway? I always thought he was 6'3 as is Mir.

Brock Lesnar 6'2 lol, that site is getting some numbers mixed up.

Going with Carwin with a slight edge, but not making any bets. Too hard to call this fight. Both look ready, Carwin was intense while Mir looked relax cuz you know he's seen this before.

Never seen Frank in this shape before it's odd...lolz!
