My hopes of seeing the Mir vs Nogueria rematch have been crushed. Nogueria dropped out due to an injury that needs surgery. So Mirko Cro Cop now replaces him. I say Mir takes this, he has composure standing up and definetely on the ground. And Roy Nelson wants the winner of this fight as well(Is he scared of Carwin?). What do you think?

Plus, Jon Jones has got his wish. He wanted a top light heavyweight contender, and he got it. Forrest Griffin is set to return at UFC 123 to face this LHW powerhouse. Unfortunately, I think Jones is going to take another victory. As much as I would like to see Griffin pull off the unthinkable, it's not really possible.

Did you miss the last Month of MMA.......Anything is possible in this sport. For Gods sake Matt Horwich subbed Thales Leites with a RNC lastnight.

Edit: And according to Jones, the Forrest fight rumors are just that-rumors.

UFC light heavyweight Jon Jones (11-1) recently posted on his Twitter account that a rumored fight between him and former UFC light heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin (17-6) is exactly that, just a rumor:

"Been getting a lot of questions about a possible fight between Griffin and I. As of now no one from @Ufc has mentioned it 2me Rumor"

I give Cro Cop a one in three chance against Mir, Mir probably isn't going to out strike him and he's Mir is going to have to get him to the ground before he submits him. I'd love to see the fight.

A lot of people are overlooking Cro Cop he looked decent against Barry and he wants nothing more than to attain a solid victory in the UFC...

Cro Cop by KO round 1..,
