Battle of the gatekeepers. I think this is Mirko's final battle I don't think he gets past Roy. Sad to say cause i've been a big Mirko fan for years but he just hasn't been the same assasin type fighter he was in Pride and has lost his last two by pretty brutal ko's. I think Roy will sub him.

Mirko looked sharp against Schaub, and might have taken a decision had he not got knocked out/continued at the pace he was.

Roy doesn't have great takedowns, isn't too mobile, and i think Mirko couldn't ask for a better top level guy to match up against his style.

Now i still might pussyfoot with this match and pick Roy, but i think Mirko might just win this fight. And his odds should be great for betting.
