Everyone knew Reem vs JDS was coming up. I'll go with Cain destroying Mir's hopes for another title run by KO, as for Reem vs JDS, I'm going to stay on the fence. I have no idea who will win....

Interesting.

I think I'm going with Mir on a major upset. This fight will be proof that Cain suffered a career ending injury and will never be the same as before.


I think Overeem is going to style all over JDS. Bad match up for JDS, i think

JDS Vs Overeem: I got Junior by knockout late, I think he has a little faster hands and better technical standup then Overeem, and I don't think Alastair has good enough takedowns to get it to the matt. I'm predicting a relatively anti-climatic fight however, as I think both will be very cautious on the feet until they are forced to take chances late in the fight.

Cain vs Mir: Cain all the way, I think he is a pretty bad stylistic matchup for Mir. He has a smothering style and good ground and pound, which are Mir's biggest weaknesses. I don't think Mir is going to have enough space or time on the ground to work for a submission and will get stopped relatively early in the fight. If Cain decides to keep it standing though, I think Mir has a better shot but I'd still go with Cain because I think he has far heavier hands.

I'm taking Overeem by decision, and Mir via submission upset. . . Mir will catch Cain off his back.

very excited about these matchups, though. . . very rare you get the four best HW's on the same card. . . ALl of these are fights with the underdog being no more than a +150-+175 tops. . . thanks for the good news!

Frank Mir isn't one of the best heavyweights.....

IMO he is. . . But in a subjective sport like MMA, it's always up for debate. . .

He's definitely a top 5-7 HW at the very least. . . As far as UFC HW's, he's the fourth best right now (my opinion). . . I guess you could argue Carwin belongs above him because he beat him, but he's coming off back to back losses. . .

Barnett and Werdum are arguably better as well. . .


All subjective. . . Still don't see how it'd be possible to not have him at least 7th since Lesnar has retired.

yeah, that one I'm least sure about. Roy is talking about moving down to 205 and I didn't hear anything about the UFC signing Big Foot.

would be a really good fight though.

Massive fan of Overeem & JDS, maaayn!

I'm going to have to go with Overeem by K.O/T.K.O
I think early on as well. Maybe in the 1st.

JDS is a heck of a fighter but the guy is pretty damn basic - I just think Overeem has too much experience & too many tools for the rather limited JDS.



I've counted Mir out too many times & being truthful I never did see what others did in Cain.
I just have such little faith in Mir's chin & Cain can crack.

Tough fight to call for me, i'll go with Mir to pull the upset off.

Nelson K.O Silva.
Hardy ends his losing streak with a nice K.O win over fragile chinned Ludwig.
Rosario retires Gonzaga.
Miller over Dollaway.
Don't know a lot about Paul Sass apart from he's a Brit with top notch submissions.
Glover by K.O/T.K.O
