This should hopefully be a very good fight. It will def be telling to where they both stand in mma right now. I don't hope either of them loses. I hope to see a good fight, just like every or almost every fight I see. I rarely root against ppl. This is a sport it's not personal mind. I think either Mir will sub him in the first cpl min's or Brock will be able to gnp to either a dec or late stoppage.

Why would you hope he loses? Just cuz he used to wrestle? remember Severn, Shamrock, Saku and a host of others were pro wrestlers before pro fighters. It's a diff job. I don't care what jobs a fighter used to have.

Brock will power right through Mir and bring him down to the ground early from there Mir will either sweep and get on top and deal out punishment for a tko or sink in a submission off his back. either way i'm picking Mir in an early win

I think that Lesnar will punish Mir for a little while but ultimately Mir will catch Lesnar in a submission. More than likely a crazy armbar like he had Pete Williams in.

why do people want lesnar to lose? why cant people forget the pro wrestling and just give him a chance, he's just trying to do the best he can in this sport, i want him to win because i think he can have an impressive future

Lesnar would be a great addition to the ufc heavyweight division i just dont respect him because of what he said in an interview, he said he could beat Sylvia and Couture and thats a big jump from min soo kim, he shouldnt talk like that just yet, thats why i want him to lose

I don't hate Lesner, in fact i think the picture for him on mmaplaground gives him street cred in my book off the bat, but that doesn't mean i can't or don't want to see a former champion yank his arm clear outta it's socket...as for the smack talking... i could really care less, its hard to tell what is scripted and what isn't these days, so i just tivo through it. So i guess what im trying to say is that i expect an early submission from Mir, doesn't mean it can't go totally the other way though, cause as we all know anything can happen in the cage.

He said what he thought would sell himself to the big orgs jumping over all the small fights... and it worked. Make no mistake about it, outside of some of the lifers, pro wrestlers don't take themselves too seriously. They are selling a product (themself) they don't buy into their own hype any more than anybody else.I've seen more than enuf smack talk from more than enuf athletes to not care.

Lednar is f-ing HUGE. I think this fight will be sweet. Dude was an amateur wrestler if I am not mistaken. He knows how to fight, he is not going to be taken if he does not want. I am not Mir fan and Lesner obviously has done nothing in MMA. But I am sure UFC would not let him fight if he did not have something other than a name.

Dude could make more money in WWE I imagine. I think it is AWESOME that he is coming to UFC. I hope more people with his kinda freakish skills/atribute come over from WWE or whereever.

Fight's gonna be sweet. In the end I think Mir will have it. It will be a good fight, but no one as green is gonna take Mir. Lesner will be a freaking machine when he gets rolling. That dude is a TANK. I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS FIGHT.

I don't really understand the Lesnar hate, I think he will be a good addition, however, people seem to see him as either he's going to be phenomenal or he's going flounder miserably, people seem to be missing what Brock Lesnar has the best potential to be, and that is arguably the warmest blanket in MMA, the man has wrestling credentials out the asshole, he's naturally large framed, and he's strong, and while that spells awesome for some good ol' ground and pound, its also a really good recipe for a Lay and Pray champion.
