If Mir is capable of ducking in to reems initial onslaught, grabbing the double leg and locking up a sub I think he can win this, then again he is also very capable of landing the over hand that dropped Kongo. But I dont think Mir thinks very soundly with a kick boxing killer hunting him down.

Big fan of both, problem two of my favorite fighters as well...Slow starter who has been stopped early vs fast starter who finishes early and gets finished late...

Pettis - Condit - Nick Diaz - McGregor - Hendricks
Cruz - Weidman - Ronda - DC - Mayday - Lawler

Also before I get trolled I have no reasons other than just thinking this.

No one gives a shit who your favorite fighters are, donkey.

This fight is one of the hardest to predict I've ever come across. Nothing would surprise me.

I have no idea. On paper Overeem should win but neither guy is in great from right now. Looking forward to the fight.

I went into the gas station, said, "Fill 'er up, Harry."
The guy said, "Regular?"
I said, "No, put on a gorilla suit and dance like a fairy."

If Mir looks good I think he has a good shot. Overeem proved lately that he's the same guy he was before but with more power and larger muscles.

It's hard to call. Mir is known for going down against 5 minute men. And Overeem is a 5 minute man which means he will lose if it goes to round 2
