I think Mir is a lot closer to JDS's level of striking than people think. I also think JDS's grappling is a lot closer to Mir's than people think. I think it's going to be a great fight no matter where it goes.
My thoughts as well. I'd still bet on JDS if I had to, but Mir is a dangerous matchup for anyone. Heavy hands, quick thinking even when rocked and one of the smarter fighters. I think Junior will get him with the speed advantage though.
