    this fight was long coming, I don't see Mir winning but at least it will be a good HW fight, which rarely occurs in the UFC.

    I wish Mir would get a tune up fight. This is going to be another Arlovski vs Buentello fight. I wonder who gets the Main event, Tito vs Griffin or the HWs.

    I think he crashed his motorcycle.

    Personally I'm pulling for him, but Arlovski is pretty friggin awesome.

    I don't see Mir getting out of the first round, I agree that he should get some type of tune up fight.

    jesus, if you're an athlete in any sport, why the fuck would you be riding a motorcycle? that's putting your livelihood on the line

    mir broke his femur, now that's a pretty damn big bone

    having said that arvloski will kill him, i don't see mir taking him down. Maybe if he pulls guard straight away he can maybe catch arvloski with a sweep or sub.

    It's possible that Mir could get lucky. Just not very likely...








    at all....

    have never seen Mir fight, but the three or four Arlovski fights I have seen are enough to convince me that he's about one of the best out there.

    of the mir fights i've seen, he doesn't look extremely fast. in fact, he's kinda sluggish even, and AA could easily sprawl on his shoots. if mir can sweep and get on top, that's the only way i can see mir coming out with a victory
