Any new news on Overeem puling out? Apparently it's going to be Mir/Lesnar III

it's been all over MMA news outlets the last couple days, but seems to be settling down now.

the state approved overeem. due to proper blood / urine results or quick cash injections by dana white, who really gives a crap?

two overgrown clowns are still on the menu for the 30th, so we can all remain happy. :D

seriously.

i'm seeing all these post-fight articles about mir, talking about how he deserves a title shot or an eliminator, and i just don't see it. not yet, anyway.

mir is a very good fighter and an expert at certain things, but too often he fails to impress. he basically did one thing right in the big nog fight, and that was to seize the gift-wrapped opportunity to find a superior position on the ground. he certainly didn't impress on his feet and breaking nog's arm is something any good HW can do if the opponent refuses to tap.

i'd rather see barnett, possibly cormier, werdum (if he promised to fight like a man) ahead of the line in front of mir.

cormier and werdum at least have the potential to be champ. it may not be a huge chance, but it's there. mir, by contrast, is a likely KO victim to the top HW's.

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.

u all are just mir haters....that fight was so brief and all Nog did was get 1 flurry in with a good connect which can happen to anybody, and its like all of u are trying to take away from Mir subbing him because so many of u play favorites werdum is WAY worse than mir, that fool just falls down on purpose and won't even try to standup....if anything Mir gets a bad rap for being so physically outmatched vs Lesnar. thats the only fight where he looked bush league, otherwise Mir is just as good as any of the names u mentioned. people hate on him so much too acting like Mir is some ahole which isn't even true either. Mir is a beast as long as he's not fighting people way bigger than he is

I think Mir is very good but is on or off he has very good aggressive BJJ and as you said is deadly, I just think he doesnt take getting hit in the face very well, all his 5 loses were TKO's and all the good top HW's are hard punchers JDS, CAIN and Overeem, Mir also doesnt have good takedowns to bring the battle to the ground, but he has decent striking and can beat anyone its just that sometimes he is hard to read as a fighter

regarding that, there was an interesting article that came out yesterday about how mir has supernatural calm. a calm which sometimes helps him and sometimes hurts him.

on the ground he's like a relentless computer, analysing everything and coming up with the exact right response. on his feet he frequently lacks urgency, which puts him at great risk against strikers.

I can totally see that. He even admitted so after the Noguiera fight. It seemed like he was totally caught off-guard by Carwin's power too.

Werdum fighting Roy Nelson at UFC 143. Solid fight. I'd like to see Roy continue to get into better shape and stick around.

WTF are you rambling about this time? Anybody who watched the fight saw that Nog could have won no problems if he made Mir stand up or just didn't completely lose his mind.

werdum is WAY worse than mir, that fool just falls down on purpose and won't even try to standup....

If we're going to judge fighters on just 1 fight, then how about Mir vs. Vera?

Quote:
otherwise Mir is just as good as any of the names u mentioned.

Based on what?

LOL, he got destroyed by Vera in a minute, and Vera is mediocre LHW.
