    He's stated that his goal is to win Heavy and LH belts. I think that in the UFC that is just about impossible. Having to chance weight that much would be brutal on his body considering how often he would have to fight to protect both belts against top notch guys.

    I think he's got a great shot at HW, hopefully he gets his chance after Monson.

    Vera's a good guy but I can't help but feel that his personality is a bit forced

    Oh yeah, another thing is that I haven't really seen any of his fights go the distance, I would like to see what happens when it does.

    Brandon will destroy Mir. Brandon's ground game is much better than anyone knows and his stand up is some of the best in the UFC currently. His only weakness is his youth and overall inexperience.

    I'm a fan. Have been for a while. His personality makes him marketable, and you can't deny that he is showing quite a bit of potential.

    Well, in the end Mir can look at himself and say

    "At least i beat (empty) Tank Abbot."
