I could actually see this fight ending similarly to the Mir/Kongo fight. Everyone's been writing Mir off just like they did in that fight.

If Mir drops Overeem it's all over.

I think Mir knocks out Overeem, I know that's a huge call but that's what I'm tipping to happen.

Mir's retirement fight. He's gotten slower and slower. Overeem by tko.

Am I the only one who feels sorry for Mir? First JDS, then Cormier, then Barnett and now Reem.

Dude needed a break and he didn't get one.

Hmmmm

Overeem should wins this. Yeah he got K1 stand up but in MMA he has losed allmost all decent strikers.

Ah, UFC 41. I've watched that DVD so many times. I was well excited to see Tank back in the Octagon, but it was pretty poor matchmaking.

I can see why they did it; Mir had recently just been brutalised by Ian Freeman and they thought Tank would be able to do the same. Realistically, they should have set him up with a guy like Freeman instead of Mir.

Nice sub, though.

Funny how even Tank managed to stuff Mir's takedowns though ...

My favorite memory of Mir was snapping Timmah's forearm. Back then he was working as a bouncer at Spearmint Rhino to pay the bills

Rooting for Mir to give Overeem the Kongo treatment.

The ol punch-n-sub
