Hopefully Frank comes into this fight in shape. He looked like he trained hard for his last fight against Lesnar. This could be a good chance for Mir to get a win, and maybe a shot at a #1 contender fight for the belt.

McCully is tough, but its another submission win for Mir.

From what I heard he only trained for 2 or 3 weeks before the Lesnar fight. He looked gassed after one round during the interview.

He'll make quick work of McCully.

Really. He looked like he was in pretty good shape. A lot better shape than some of his previous fights.

Hmmmm....I don't think he'll be in the running for a title shot anytime soon, I would say at least 3 more wins. He needs to beat at least 2 top competitors from his division first. Although I don't think his div has top competitors much anymore.

Crap fight, Mir should kill McCully.

What??? I didn't see this being the next fight for Mir.......I would think a downgrade fight from Lesnar.....

Justin McCully is a way more skill4ed fighter than Lesnar. but still will be subd early by Mir

i am intrigued by the matchup, am looking forward to it when i go to vegas,

This is disapointing. How the hell is Mir supposed to get close to a title shot if they keep making him the gatekeeper of the HW division?

McCully is tough so you can't say the guy doesn't have a chance. But, it's a pretty small chance. Mir by Submission in 2nd round.
