not coincidentally, those three fighters would all make more interesting matchups than mir would. many fighters would, actually, like bigfoot silva, carwin, nelson... even an aging fedor would be more interesting than frank mir.
so that's pretty-much it: no real threat to be champ, and a pretty boring fighter to watch. not a real good combination. not that i don't respect mir, but that's a different issue.
