It's 8 days away, and I'm finding myself more pumped for this fight than the whole UFC 85 card. Who's with me?!

Who takes it, and how?

The entire UFC 85 card??? No way.

I wanna see Miller win but personally I am more stoked for Werdum Vera and Swick Davis.

This is going to be a sweet fight..... I see Jacare winning because Mayhem has good ground game but not like Jacare. Jacare has some world class JJ. Jacare will sub him in the second round or late in the first round.

It's an intriguing fight for me to be sure, but I would rather see Hughes /Alves, Vera/Wedum, and Davis/Swick. It is on par with Marquardt/Leties for me, which I think is a similar type matchup. A good BJJ guy against a well rounded MMA guy, although I think MArquardt is a much better fighter than Mayhem currently. Who knows? Jacare did get Koed quickly in his first fight. If he has got a chin now & good takedowns , I'd take him to get a sub in a 5 round fight. Since Dream has 2 rounds in this tourney( although the 1rst is 10 minutes) It's a really difficult choice. Haven't made my pick yet.

I honestly think Jacare will tool Miller. Miller's strength is his ground game and Jacare is leaps and bounds ahead of Miller in that department. Jacare will take it to the ground fast.

Two completely different mindsets on the ground though. I think Miller can keep it standing.

If Miller can keep it standing he'll win, but Jacare has explosive takedowns and Miller is a tall lanky guy who isn't too well known for takedown def. In Jacare's last fight he took down a very good collegiate wresler with ease.

I think Miller is going to use his overall MMA experiance to keep the fight standing and either KO or win by decision......

I know the popular opinion is that Jaycare will take the fight down and win by sub. but I think Miller has enough skill to defend

I agree. Miller has had fights with alot better fighters. I think it will be a decision win for Miller.

I dono how a fighter with over 40 fights and only 5 losses is the dog in this fight. Miller has a very real chance of ko'ing Jacare while he comes in for a take down. I'm excited about this fight.
