how you gonna out-wrestle an olympic grade wrestler in order to slap on your BJJ locks?
how you gonna beat him on the feet when you're passive and slow that way, and he's worlds' quicker, craftier and more-effective as a boxer?
tell me frank tell me pls
Mir is actually a huge f*ck that has gotten really strong in the later part of his career, and Cormier is like 5'10", he is definitely capable of blasting Cormier with a knee, all he has to do is lean back to avoid a haymaker and throw his knee up at the same and it would be at Cormier's face. And Mir has arguably the best MMA jits of all time in terms of attacking, he is definitely capable of submitting anyone.
Not saying it's gonna happen, he'll most likely get beat to death at this point in his career, but I could see Mir getting blasted by a punch and getting dropped and grabbing a limb in a scramble, or something similar.

that is exactly the caramel-coated popcorn that makes us always stay up late on fight nights.
Andre Berto is interested in a possible MMA fight/career, his brother is a MMA fighter and I'm sure they've trained together here and there. He's talked to Dana White about this. Should be very interesting should he choose to do this, as he is a high level boxer that's pretty popular, and more importantly he is in his prime and very explosive.
Kermit Cintron wanted to do this a few years ago but didn't end up doing it, would have been interesting. He had really heavy hands and a wrestling background.
