Mir coming in at 260 makes me worry about his cardio.

Frank Mir (260)



Thank god. He came in looking to Anti-grapple at the expense of his striking. Big Mir isn't nearly as good as slightly smaller Mir.

Hallman chose not to try and shed the extra 2lbs, and will be fined 20% of his purse.

Personally, I would bump it to 30% because he didn't even attempt to reweigh in.

I never do well in the pickings - so I decided to change all my picks. Now I will at least stand a chance of winning the encyclopedia.

Mir at 260 is just fine.
He packed on the muscle again so he can punch Big Nog's head into the second row.

Then this time around after the fight his excuse can be that, well, his head feel off.

Is Hallman trying to get cut? First the Speedo, now not making weight. Not a good way to stay in Dana's good graces. He better have one hell of a fight, otherwise he will be in the unemployment line real soon.

I thinking the same thing P_F. There are several very tough fights to pick. I'm in for a crappy season anyways so I just went for it. Threw a few upsets in there to see if it'll pay off.
