    Someone is getting knocked out. Gotta love heavyweight. I hope Arlovski wins but I'm kinda feeling Mir in this one

    I've seen plenty of HW fights that were supposed to be guaranteed KO finishes that went all rounds and sucked.

    You're only picking Mir because you saw him fight recently. If you had seen Arlovski KO Browne recently, you'd pick him to win. Either way, Arlovski beating Browne is much more impressive than Mir beating Duffee.

    Browne was attacking more cleanly than Duffee and was still getting owned.

    Fan of both but I think AA deserved a title shot instead of this. I think he beats Mir by KO due to not having sloppy ass striking like Duffy.

    If AA wins that should surely give him the title shot

    I did see Arlovski KO Browne recently as well. And your right may not be a knockout. I just feel Mir has more ways to win. He has a huge advantage on the ground. Are you ok with that? Or do u have another reason why I would think that way?

    Arlovski should have the next title-shot, but I have Mir by Ko.

    Arlovski has the sambo skills to avoid the ground with Mir. He has 0 losses by submission. I think he has the speed and striking to finish Mir as quickly as he did Browne. Duffee had Mir rocked a few times. AA would have finished him.

    AA's got most of the advantages.

    Power
    Speed
    Wrestling
    Striking

    I doubt he ends up under Frank Mir.

    Struve and Big Nog didn't do much better. 2 HW fights where you expect someone to get KO'd and instead we got 4 pretty boring rounds and 1 TKO. Sorry to give you shit man, just annoyed at the quality of these fights.
