I know its coming I know it. I think Dos Santos has beaten better comp then both Carwin and Cain but Carwins got Brock next and Dana said Cain fights the winner of that fight. Who else are they gonna give Cigano if Cain is waiting for the Brock/Carwin winner?

Plus the fact that Cigano isnt a wrestler but a boxer couple with Mirs Muay Thai and BJJ I know thats the route there probably gonna go

i think JDS would flatline on him on the feet

Mir's additional size may help him with the takedowns though, JDS' wrestling and ground game are really unknown in the UFC

i would pick JDS to win though

Dos Santos got vicious striking, I think he could knock out Mir if they stood and traded punches, but on the ground Mir can make him tap.

Striker vs grappler fight really, but I got Dos Santos by KO.

Mir would be knocked out again. You can take it to the bank.

No he wouldn't, and couldn't. Frank Mir would not be able to take Dos Santos down. He would not be able to outstrike him either. Frank Mir is inferior to the up and coming heavyweights. He has a name and a name only, but he will be kayoed again if he fights either JDS or Cain Velasquez.

i'd like to see mir knocked the f*ck out by junior, but i don't think frank is dumb enough to stand and trade with jds, he'll take him down and use his black belt against jds' purple belt. i would laugh my ass off though if junior managed to reverse it and submit frank mir, then a purple belt from Nogeira would be worth a lot more than a black belt from whoever mir trained from. carwin checked that chin and made frank lean back

Sorry man, the manbearpig nickname has been cracking me up a bit. But who the **** are you talking about again?

I do think JDS and Velasquez would be able to keep the fight standing against Mir. Mir is way overrated in my opinion. He has good submissions, but he doesn't have the ability to get the fight to the ground against the up and coming UFC heavyweights (namely JDS, Velasquez and Carwin). I can't see Mir beeting any of the three (obviously 1 down already).

I think Dos Santos would walk right thru Mir. 1st round KO.
Dos Santos has that look about him that says " I aint messing around ".

Mir is a great fighter, but I think ppl put too much stock on him after he ko'd Big Nog, even Mir himself. Against todays HW's, he not as explosive as Cain nor as powerful as Carwin. I see JDS as an even worst beast for him, he's got great crisp boxing w/ ko power. Plus w/ the Nog bros on his side, who knows how good his ground game is. Just because we haven't seen him on the ground doent mean he cant play there.

If he's not on Dana's good side, he probably will. But I have a feeling they'll give Frank an easier fight next. I dont think Dana's finished milking mir yet.
