    Daaaaaaaauumn.

    I'm guessing Devil is wearing this grin permanently now:




    And rightfully so.
    Yes, but only because I predicted a year or two ago that Mir would get another title shot and everyone acted like I was an idiot. He's always been there close to the top and attrition makes **** like this happen.

    I didn't predict that he'll win the title, by the way. Only that he would get another shot. I do think he has a WAY better chance of winning than most people will give him credit for though and I think JDS is a better matchup for him than Velasquez.

    I agree, who do you think will take it?

    I'd lean slightly to JDS b/c of hand-speed.

    If I were betting and the odds were even I'd put my money on JDS. But the odds will probably be way out of whack in favor of JDS, which would make Mir a value bet.

    JDS should win the fight. If it's a striking match Mir only has a puncher's chance of knocking him out before he gets raped. If it goes to the ground Mir has the advantage. Those are the obvious factors.

    The X-factors as I see them are:

    1. Don't believe the hype. Good fighters lose fights. Especially heavyweights. JDS just hasn't had his dirty laundry aired yet like Mir, Fedor, Velasquez, Lesnar, Carwin, Nogueira, etc, etc, etc. His time will come. His long winning streak tells me he's an awesome fighter but it also tells me he's due for a loss in the near future.

    2. Mir will do everything in his power to avoid striking with dos Santos. I think he could use different tactics than JDS has faced before. It seems obvious now that JDS is a superior striker but if you look back at his fights they aren't littered with guys who went out of their way to avoid standing with him. This gives rise to the myth that JDS is almost impossible to take down, sort of like the presumed fact that Velasquez has endless cardio when he's only gone the distance once in his whole career.

    3. Mir hasn't done well against bigger guys and exceptional wrestlers. JDS is neither of those.

    4. The judges. I think Mir should use a strategy similar to what he used against Cro Cop. It'll be boring, people will boo, Dana will be pissed. But it's his best chance for a win and I think Mir is seasoned enough to go with the strategy that gives him the best chance even if it pisses everyone off. If they grind it out against the cage and it goes the distance, we all know there's no telling how the judges will call it.

    Good analysis. Mir will def. be a value bet.

    Overeem vs Mir at some point would make for a great fight.

    I'm saying it won't be a value bet, cause Mir will lose. So you will lose money if you bet on him, ok?



    Alistair makes statement: http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2012/4/23...r-his-elevated


    Prior to the UFC 146 press conference in March, I aggravated an old rib injury on my left side. My doctor prescribed, and I accepted, an anti-inflammatory medication that was mixed with testosterone. I was completely unaware that testosterone was one of the ingredients in the medication. Although I was unaware, I do realize it is my job to know what I am putting into my body.


    They put testosterone in everything nowadays.

    Who doesn't start their day with a big bowl Testoster-Os and T-fortified milk?

    I think you don't understand what a value bet is.
