    This. Overall I think it isn't too far off, though.

    Staph Nog
    Tim
    Fat Nelson
    Green Brock

    Yea he fights but he loses.. his claim to fame will be beating ghosts of the Pride legends.. will laugh my ass of if Fedor cracks that wallaby eating Mir.

    Mir fought a who's who list of great HW's.... But he lost to half of them at the very least.

    Gotta go with Fedor in terms of results, but Mir's resume is nothing to scoff at.

    How likely do you think Fedor winning is? Personally, I see him getting dropped and subbed early. Boy has been looking bad, and Mir did show some good counter striking years back.

    I'm gonna say Fedor because they share several common opponents (Sylvia, Nog (twice), Crocop, Arlovski, Hunt, Bigfoot) and with the exception of Sylvia they were all MUCH better fighters at the time Fedor fought them than when Mir fought them.

    Basically this fight coming up is pointless and proves nothing, other than both are middle aged, former champions and Scott Coker is trying to bring in viewers due to their names

    Mir is bad ass, Fedor is bad ass, but like another poster said.. Frank had the better competition but he lost more.

    Frank Mir fought in the UFC, and became a champion. Fedor is 2-4 in the Beta Leagues. LOL

    Absolutely no debate it's Mir. Fedor post-Pride was cherry picking his opponents and still getting beat or got handed fraudulent decisions.

    Fedor looks to be done really done for many years now.. I was going to say 50/50 cause I think Mir is also done at a high level but then I saw fat Mir is no longer fat with this USADA brake so he is younger, bigger and will likely land first.

    Fedor only has a punchers chance, sad shit to say but I favor Mir in this one at this stage.

    Either way I won't be going gaga with either of them winning this is to long after their primes to have any real value but I will enjoy the goofs posting about it.
