I think Mir could potentially KO Werdum but that is more of a long shot than anything. Mir's standup isn't really THAT good. He's not a KO artist or anything.

I see Werdum singlelegging Mir and subbing him with quite ease.
Yes! Mir is bigger than he used to be and his only hope is to use his size but I'm not even sure he really knows how. Mir 2.0? He is basically the same guy who got destroyed by Lesnar and trashtalks his way to the top10. Technically speaking Werdum probably has better standup than Mir and a much better groundgame so that is why I'd pick Werdum by decision with the possibility of subbing Mir if he can get him down and hold top position for some extended period of time.
