nah it's kind of hard to call

Overeem should bully Mir against the cage and stop him first round. But Reem has a way of losing when he is winning and Mir seems to pull submissions quickly out of nowhere.

Being well spoken does not = good fight IQ. Mir has rarely displayed high fight IQ.

Based on talent and physical capabilities Mir shouldn't stand a chance but Overeem tends to gas and/or lose focus at points in fights. Especially at HW, all Mir has to do is be ready if/when he does. That said, the Reem has so much more weaponry that he should win this. It's not a gimme though. Top 10 HW vs Top 10 HW is never a gimme.

If Mir can make it passed the first 2 and half minutes then he's got a good shot I'd say.

The regular inconsistency of both fighters can draw doubts from either side. Both seem to crumble ince hurt though Mir has come back more than Overeem. Yet Mir's main weakness, close quarter stiking against the cage is one of his opponents strengths.
