    I really don't think his chin sucks. Franks weakest area is in the clinch. He seems lost in the clinch. He gets overpowered by the carwins and barnetts and eats a lot of shots. like the Barnett loss as well as the carwin loss. He ate three or four flush shots from carwin in the clinch and against the cage. same with Barnett. He will do well against fighters that can't simply overpower him. I think he will have a hard time or will fail making 205. now as for overreem. he will clinch....push him against cage....and finish him with knees.

    Frank is just too slow and is weak in a lot of areas. I thought him gaining all that muscle mass after the 2nd lesnar fight was a detriment to his career. If he dropped to 205 he would probably be faster, but the fighters he would face would be way faster anyways. He just hasn't really got much better over the years. His bjj helps him squeak out random wins, but he has too many holes to consistently put them together.

    I agree with both sentiments from folks saying that a) it doesn't address Mir's biggest problems, b) this seems highly unlikely to be doable in a healthy way. I can't see how Frank, as an older guy with a lot of wear, manages to convert his physique and drop the weight without serious "outside help."

    Reading about this stuff just reminds me how much I dislike weight cutting. I would prefer if weigh ins were the same day to help limit it.

    Dolce tries to hype up his methods way too hard.

    I think Mir at 205 is insane, but I think if he could do it and could be healthy there I think he would wreck people like crazy.
    Maybe not Jones, Gustafsson or Machida. But I think scraps against Shogun, T. Silva, & Hendo would be awesome.

    I'm sure it could be done and I'm sure he'd make a great gate keeper at 205 but at this point of his career I don't see him being much more than that.
