    I also want to see Werdum vs Mir… I think Werdum might actually give Mir a schooling.

    Mir has no chin. If he comes out strong he might KO Werdum but if the fight goes more than a minute I think Werdum wins by either stunning and then submitting Mir or possibly even getting a TKO. Could be wrong though. Mir made a hell of a come back in his last fight.

    He’s always been confident in his striking? Wouldn’t know it if you watched the Overeem fight. He did look great against big/not so big country though.

    yes, to me it is not smart to play the sub game with Mir after seeing how easily and quickly he came back to sub Big Nog in their fight.
