And I'm not backing down from it, until we see the results of UFC 98!
In my opinion: Brock will defeat Mir
Here's a few reasons why:
A. Brock got caught the first time (lesson learned?)
B. Brock is too big and strong for Mir
C. Brock only has to worry about being submitted from the bottom (1 dimensional Mir)
D. Brock is much quicker than Mir (footwork, boxing, ring control)
E. Brock has realized this is MMA, training in all aspects fighting.
F. IF you think Brock was winning the first fight (got caught), well I think this time around... he's sure to have improved (witnessed vs Randy).
Does Mir have the skills of a "kung fu master from chinese movies"? lol
I don't think so!
p.s. Unless Mir trains his ass off to gain speed, he's losing this one.
I have to disagree from the very beginning. Mir is the guy who got caught. Brock came out like tornado and surprised Mir who was able to gather himself and get the sub just like you'd expect. Mir is the experienced, trained and seasoned MMA top fighter, Brock is the raw guy with potential. When a guy who is above you in every aspect of MMA beats you you lost, you didn't get caught. Secondly, what makes you think Mir didn't take anything from that fight? Do you really think Brock will be able to charge like a wild man and catch him by surprise again? No way. He won't even try. I don't see any reasonable scenario in which Brock wins unless he catches Mir with something or Mir becomes gassed. I thought Brock looked like he was wearing down against Randy and I have some questions about his stamina.
