  1. Xaninho says:

    Ofcourse he likes Mir as opponent. Mir has virtually no stand-up as opposed to Overeem.

    JDS has a little voice in the back of his mind saying:”YES! easy money!”

    • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

      LOL He’d still clock Overeem good. He beat Carwin without trying. I hope JDS doesn’t get cocky and roll with Mir.

      • Xaninho says:

        Carwin is a typical example of a wrestler who learned how to strike. he is pretty good, for a wrestler. Overeem is a whole other level of striking. Too bad he has the same doctor as Sonnen has though….

        • Blade says:

          Overeem likes that horse meat he goes to the farm and just bites into that horse that was fed alot of roids!

        • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

          I hope Carwin gets back on top. He’s lost two in a row. Carwin vs Valesquez maybe next year or late this year.

        • Carlos says:

          No because that doc didn’t castrate overeem.

    • K Dawg says:

      LMAO Mir has virtually no stand up? You obviously have not watched many of his fights. His Muay Thai has been complemented by Mark Delegrote, and he is also a Kenpo Karate Black belt. He put Check Kongo on queer street, and Kongo is a Premier striker although one dimensional. I will agree with the fact that Mir’s chin is now suspect at this point in his career; however to make the comment that Mir has virtually no stand up is rediculous. If Mir can keep the fight in close and get things to the ground he can totally win this fight. If he gets tagged with one of those Heavy Dos Santos shots it will be lights out though

  2. Bisping is the man says:

    Yeah if Mir got KOd by Lesnar then it will be a easy KO for JDS

  3. stephen Riddle says:

    I like both these fighters, any given fight night! Thats all i got!

  4. GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

    Mir won’t last one round with JDS. yes Mir has aesome grappling but he cannot take any shots to face as was proven AGAIN in Big Nog fight. Also JDS will be out for revenge for his buddy-coach Big Nog. Look for JDS to jump allover Mir an deend it quick. If ref hadn’t interfered Big Nog would have finished Mir off with punches.

  5. DMAC says:

    Of course he likes this match up. Easy win. After bitching about reem they give him another juicer but he’s definitely fine with this one. Hope Mir catches a limb. JDS is a boring ass champ anyways.

    • Joe Bidden says:

      Too bad Mir didn’t test positive. Ever. Everyone seems to forget that Overeem was the only heavyweight that tested out of everyone on the card.

      But, you can live in your fantasy world all you want. Everyone juices, whatever makes you feel better about horse-meat-man.

      Oh and how can he be a boring champ? He hasn’t even defended his title yet. And he KO’d Velasquez in the first round. Where is the boring part?

      Have fun being a Overeem fan boy lol

      • Xaninho says:

        Mir wasn’t tested randomly. He flushed his system so he wouldn’t piss hot before the fight. But he was roided against Lesnar obviously. It di

        • Silvas scared says:

          He was tested randomly the same day as Overeem you fucking retard.

        • A.James says:


        • Xaninho says:

          NOT before his fight against Lesnar fucking dumbass!

          Learn to read and understand what the fuck you’re reading before commenting stupid cocksucker!

        • Jay says:

          This isn’t about Lesner you fuckin moron. That’s was like 1 1/2 years ago.

        • K2 says:

          I believe the NSAC tests every fighter that competes in a championship bout and any fighter in a main event. So there was a very good chance that he was tested right after the Lesner fight.

  6. jbeamazing says:

    he wants frank because of what he did to nog but even if they let overroid fight with his advantage from the needle jds would knock him out in round 1 remember ever tho franks chin is questionable overoid has a worse chin the big lame has taped to strikes in the Ricardo Arona fight how wack is that and has been knocked out more then B schaub

  7. GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

    can repeat that in english. you can sure tell who the little kids on here are with the text like sentences. Mir put on 30-40 pounds of muscle to try and be able to keep from getting bullied by Lesnar. Mir trained for a year with a guy who has been JUICING his entire life Mark Philipi. Just because someone has a half of brain and is able to beat a steroid test doesn’t mean they haven’t been juicing. Ask any fighter and they will tell you most everyon ein MMA is on some type of ILLEGAL PED. I would say maybe 5-10% are clean. Penn, Diaz brothers, Dom Cruz, Florian and a hand full of others Even Dana whites little golden hero boy Faber Fabertism is juicing. No doubt whatsoever GSP has been using HGH for years and it will all come out some day just like Lance armstrong

    • kujo says:

      Mir put on about 20 lbs and that’s very plausible given 6 months or so. It wasn’t all muscle either. If gsp was using hgh he wouldve gained more than 5 lbs before his fight with Hardy.

    • DJ says:

      Do you care to back any of that up with……say ….. evidence? Some sort of proof that what you’re saying is in fact correct and you are not just another dumb cunt talking shit?

  8. Tf says:

    Of course he thinks he’s a good replacement. Easy money and guaranteed to retain the belt

  9. GET RID OF TRT says:

    Dumbest move ever.
    As if it wasn’t bad enough to no have the main fight scrapped, they now take away an amazing co main event.
    Just to have us witness Mir getting his ass kicked again.
    Mark Hunt was a much better opponent. Who the hell would wanna see JDS vs Mir?

  10. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    I’ll tell you what, JDS is not sleeping on Mir. He knows Mir is still dangerous.

  11. A.James says:

    Mir can win. JDS isn’t God. Maybe he’ll slip on a banana peel in the octagon.

  12. pat says:

    This fight will be shorter than jds vs cain

  13. pat says:

    Jds has the ugliest old lady in the game
