Default Frank Mir vs Shane Carwin

so what do you guys think? I'm gonna be honest I dont think mir will stop carwin. I think if mir wins it will be a well fought decision and if carwin wins it will be an out of nowhere stoppage. people question carwin's stamina but he is pretty athletic and trains at high altitude. I'm pretty sure he can go 5 rounds and like he said mir may have gotten bigger but he has been big since college and knows how to use his size well. That being said I still think mir is the slightly safer pick.

I don't know...I just can't for the life of me like Mir. I tried once....it just didn't work out.

A year ago I would've picked Carwin. Now I pick Mir. He's re-dedicated himself to the nth degree since the Lesnar loss. He's always been talented & dangerous...now he's somewhat crazy to boot.

Regardless of who wins, I'm thinking Brock's gonna have a hard, hard time coming back after what he's been through & stepping right into the octagon with that caliber of opponent. I'm sure he wouldn't want it any other way though.

Agreed.

I think Frank takes this one... unless it's a punch from Carwin that comes from no where.

This.
At times I like Mir then other times he opens up his mouth and says something out of the blue stupid. I think Mir will have a good gameplan against Carwin he will just need to avoid that sledgehammer he calls a right hand.

If it were a year ago, I'd of picked Carwin, but Mir's vastly improved his stand-up. I have to give this one to Mir.
