    And although Mirs wrestling might not be top notch Kongo was takendown, takendown, takendown and controlled by the much smaller Carmello Marrero who has achieved such great things as... well... he beat Kongo that time.


    @Hes - Probably depends how much vaseline Diego gets his corner to apply.

    Mir went from weighing in at 245 to having to cut down to 265 in the span of one fight. With the change so drastic, so quickly, I don't know if it will help him or hurt him.

    He did say he was picking up a lot more strength training since his fight with Brock. I think it'll definitely be a help against someone like Kongo.

    If I had to put money on it, I'd say it's not going to do him any favors. Almost all of his fights have ended in the first round. Tacking on 20 extra pounds when you've only gone the full 15 minutes once seems like a not-so-great idea.

    I agree that Mir putting on that much weight is not a good sign. I don't get your point though. If the fight only lasts a single round, then there's less chance of him gassing out. In that case, the extra size might be a good thing.

    Mir isn't stupid enough to seriously try and outstrike Kongo. I expect he'll get a submission victory or gnp tko in the first round.

    The point is that if it doesn't end in the first, then he's probably going to gas out even faster.

    Mir would be a monkey nut to stand with the Konger. Chick better have a quadrillion times better takedown def. and possibly SOME ground game to survive very long if Mir uses his walnut and operates wisely in his golden years! But I see a 50 50 chance of him trying to stand and bang, if so he will get KONGED!

    I think with that much weight reduction gassing might be a prob like u say.

    We could use a little more excitement in the heavyweight div. though.

    BJ will surely triumph! I would like to see the nightmare go the distance or into the fourth so I'm comfy on my part of the expenditure!

    GO, GO GUIDA!! He is always a willing showman and a scrapper ( I just wish he would win more! But his skills have to catch up w his heart). Just like mine.

    Thanks Pizdoff, I didnt have to look far for a comprehinsive outlook on the card without looking at a ton of other rubbish! I know its all press release crap but it was quick and I like it here rather than checking a mainstream shitlet.

    Merry Christmans you Irreverent Bitches!!!
