    I am very intrigued by this fight..for most of the high profile fights, I usually have a set opinion on what I think will happen, albeit wrong most of the time lol, but I do have an opinion...with this fight though its different....I really dont know what I think will happen....

    Gun to my head...I think Mir really wants to get back at Lesnar, and to do that, hes gotta get through Carwin..I guess I would say his experience pays off, and he gets the win by decision

    Carwin dictates where the fight takes place. Carwin rapes him on the feet or on the ground.

    Tough, I could see this playing out either way. If this fight were to go to the ground, I think Mir sneaks in a submission. However I think Mir will try to use his striking instead and get caught by a heavy hook from Carwin.

    There are just so many variables and it all depends on each fighter's game plan. My gut says Carwin by KO/TKO

    Carwin will find Mir's chin and Mir will sleep.

    Carwin by TKO unless he makes a mistake and Mir subs him

    Carwin's chin is too solid for Mir to drop him

    Good question, I think its definitely been a while. The only reason that I think Mir may end up with a submission is if Carwin gets too wild and excited on the ground and leaves a limb out there. Maybe its just my initial impression but Shane looks very spastic on the floor and I can see a leglock or something coming out of a scramble.

    Considering Mir has only had 1 decision his entire UFC career, I don't see that happening.

    Mir by submission or TKO!

    Carwin wins by KO.
    Mir could win by sub but he'll have to knock Carwin down first.
    Either way, a good brawl :big grin:

    This is a tough one. Carwin has only spent less than 13 total minutes in the cage. All 1st round ko's. Goes to the ground.. Mir.. Standing... Carwin has a good chance. I'm sure he has great takedown defense with his strong wrestling background.

    Tough call.., Mir looks reinvented and Carwin just has the KO punch that is yet to be dealt with

    Mir likes to stand and swing for some reason.
    All of Carwin's wins are by KO or TKO.
    All of Mir's losses are by TKO (punches).
    And I'm not convinced Mir is able to take Carwin down anyway.

    I think it's going to be Carwin by standing KO.
