Shane pounded out Frank Mir
Which fighter at Mir's level has Roy beat?
Of course that's just MMA math.. but it is somethign to consider.
He out grappled Mir and has a better chin than Mir This will be a great fight and Shane has a punchers chance because he can bang. Hopefully Roy will not want a JDS repeat and find a way to take it to the ground. If they stand a bang it is Shane's to loose because I do not see Roy overcoming the reach advantage
