    Fox has stepped up the promos for sure.

    I just can’t see Frank winning this one. Like any fighter… he has a chance. Looking at his last few fights… and as hard as the HW’s hit… he has trouble taking a punch. Not to mention he starts out slow.

    Jr. has lightning fast hands and power… can see him taking it to Frank from the very start.

    If Frank can make it out of the 1st round…. and impose his ground game… maybe a chance in this fight?

    I see Jr. holding the belt for some time….. dude has talent, power, and speed.

    Can’t wait for this one.

    I see JDS winning eight fights out of ten. Hopefully this is one of Mir’s two. I like JDS and don’t mind him winning but it would be exciting to see Mir win whereas if JDS wins, well, we all expect that.

    Agree, but always wanting to see the underdog upset the cart. Frank has to “shoot” for the fences!!

    That used to be true, but the asswhippin’ Mir took made him up his game, weight, strength, and good old fashion “He doesn’t want his ass handed to him anymore” motivation!

    Frank has little to no chance in this fight
    as much as i like Mir as a fighter/person
    i know JDS is too much for him

    The only fighter who impose a threat to JDS
    is Alistar Overrem besides him maybe Cain has
    a chance , after all he was coming out of surgery
    and a long laid off who knows what would it happen
    if that punch didn’t landed so soon in the fight

    But yeah i see JDS holding that belt until the
    Reem comes back .

    Good promo.

    I expect Junior’s next fight to have similar footage as his part of the promo but also an added vicious KO over Mir.

    Also just to let guys know, check out Nicktheface2 on youtube. He is known for being the consensus best MMA promo/trailer maker, lots of people call for the UFC to hire him.

    Anyone that steps in the cage has a chance. Look, I never liked Mir as a fighter, but as someone said above, if he survives a first round flurry of punches, then he has a better chance of winning. We all know Mir’s chin is suspect and doesn’t take on a striker well at all. This was obvious vs. Carwin, Lesnar II, and even Cro-Cop at times during that fight.

    Again, never been a fan of Mir’s, but if he protects his chin and worked on getting Dos Santos on the ground, then he has a chance. On the ground he has game, but getting JDS on the ground is something that has been hard to do.

    Excellent promo.

    I’ll be rooting for Frank. I think it’s foolish to count him out.

    Mir still can find a way to win… It is really sad that Mir is not the same fighter as he was before accident.

    I think Mir has a big chance in the fight. In heavy weight any thing can happen these guys are so big and powerful, most if not all posses one punch knock out power any given night ANY HW can win the title simply just because they have a one punch knockout power.

    odds are in JDS favour but you can never count Mir out of any fight!

    any one else have a hard time explaining the difference between mma style boxing and standard boxing to their novice friends when watching JDS?
