Overeem would definitely be cut if he's loses with as much money as he's making ($285k to show, $100k bonus to win). I don't think Mir would ever be cut, but I agree that he'd be forced to retire though if he's gets KO'ed, which is highly probable. Maybe they should just make an agreement for this to officially be a retirement match like Ultimate Warrior vs. Macho Man at Wrestlemania 7.

The UFC career's of both fighters are on the line here. Win a win they stay relevant and a loss will certainly mean a pink slip. I love this, I see this lighting a fire under both guys and this being a war

First guy to so much as graze his opponent with a punch to the head wins!

Mir that lost to Carwin was a beast. Mir now isn't explosive and the fighters aren't playing his game

I hate this matchup. Two of my favourite HWs, one is going to have his UFC career ended. I'd much rather see Mir vs Vera II and Overeem vs Rothwell

matchup makes sense. Both fighters are coming off losses


however i dont think either should be cut. They are both still top 10 even with the losses. Why cut top 10 fighters? that makes no sense. Plus they make the UFC shit tons of money just with their names

Mir doesn't belong in the top 20.
