If Mir dropped down to light heavy, could he submit Jon Jones?

    With Franklin Mir being the best submission artist the LH division has ever seen, I think he would have the best chance of tapping out Jon

    He did tap out Nog.

    And we saw how close Vitor got to that armbar.

    So whaddya say, could Franklin do it?

    Mir would maul Jones.

    Size and strength difference is too much.
    Jones will never hurt him and Mir overpowers him.

    Also Mir won't make 205 without losing a limb.

    Remember what happened in the hallway? He would do that again. Unless he had some kangaroo meat that night.

    They were playing around in a hallway but look how effortlessly Mir tosses Jones around.He'll Tim Sylvia him in a MMA fight.

    I forget that Mir is a fucking savage. But sometimes in his fights he gets like a deer in headlights.

    Out of your mind if you think Jones doesn't piece him up badly before the fight even gets to the ground. I also im pretty confident that Mir couldn't sub Jon from the bottom in an MMA fight

    Could he submit Jones? Sure, if the fight went to the ground and Mir was on top. WOULD he submit Jones? I highly doubt it, if anything I'd see Mir KO'd before it was on the ground, or on his back getting elbowed to death.

    I'd watch though, both guys are disliked enough by people to make it an enjoyable massacre. Though it's more likely to take place at a catchweight like 230/240, particularly now Jones pissed hot lol.

    Mir could make 205 for sure that is if he removed the horse shoe out of his arse
