That's the sad thing for Mir or Carwin... when one of them faces Brock and beats him all the Brock huggers will jump straight on the excuse train.

I would imagine Carwin has probably worked on his game a little in the last year as well don't ya think?

Pretty much.. but considering how ill the man was.. it's pretty valid.

I hope it's Mir that wins.. beats Brock.. and then we get to see Brock REALLY act like a tool in the cage..

OR

Carwin wins.. loses to Brock.. then a rematch with Mir/Carwin to take on who ever is 4th in line.

I'm on the Carwin wagon. I also just can't make myself like Mir.

I think he's always been a bit mental, but I'd agree that he was sooooo damaged by that loss to Brock that he's dedicated himself to training like a character from an 80's martial arts movie... bet the last few months have been like a Rocky montage
