After Cormier beat up Barnett who no one thought he could beat, he moved up big in the heavyweight rankings and I think he has a really big chance of beating Mir.

Cormier is going to walk through Mir IMO.

And Arlovski would be one of the greatest HW's of all time if his chin wasn't made of glass.

^ agreed to both those last posts. cormier is tough as nails to take down so i don't see how mir gets that one to the ground. mir's clinch game just isn't great.

Wow, people still sleeps on Mir

C'mon fools, no one expected him to break Nog's arm

not really, mir was favored vs. nog. cormier is just a bad matchup, style wise. mir typically struggles vs. good wrestlers and that's exactly what cormier is. he has great TD defense and great top control.

mir can always grab a limb off his back but i just can't see it...

Yep. It's really sad too.

Btw speaking of chins, thats the one thing I don't think Andy gets enough credit for. Outside of Henderson and big country he has IMO the best chin in Mma. It usually doesn't get noticed because he makes people miss but even when he gets hit, it generally doesn't faze him.

agreed once again. he also seemingly never gets cut. rua of course is another guy that has a stellar chin.
