    if dos santos stayed champion i think mir would be left out of the title picture no matter how many he wins he got. however, with cain winning, and them not fighting as planned i think a couple wins could get him another title shot.

    No. Cain would TKO Mir.

    It might get him a chance for another title shot, but he's not getting the belt.

    Hypothecially speaking yeah, lets say Mir pulls a Werdum and takes a shot, fakes a fall, and grabs a sub.




    About a 1.43059% chance.



    But he doesnt deserve a title match.

    I'd feel bad for Mir if he had to face Cain. Shit, I realllly felt bad when he was gonna fight Cormier.

    It gives him the possibility of a #1 contender fight.

    i guess i should've said this instead. i don't think he deserves a shot either. i just think that because he didn't fight cain it would give him a shot to fight for an opportunity.

    This. And then Mir would STILL be getting mentioned as a "top contender". The guy is the very definition of UFC hype/poster boy.

    Cain beats Mir easier than JDS did. His speed and wrestling match very well against Mir.

    Mir has lost his chin, i heard he was thinking about dropping to 205 but i can't see him doing any better there considering how many great strikers are at 205...

    It would really depend on who Mir fights. But, yes, probably 3 or 4 wins IN A ROW (at least 2 or 3 of them in the top 10) and Mir gets another title shot.

    Mir climbing the mountain again with the right timing is pretty unlikely at this point.

    He's still a dangerous fighter, though, and I think he's underrated by a lot of people.
