ESPN article quotes Randy Couture as saying he thinks Mir will beat Dos Santos. Couture is really good at picking winners. I still think Dos Santos wins.
Not really. There was some article awhile back where he picked a bunch of underdogs and they all ended up winning. So he got this reputation of being great at picks.
But what most people didn't mention is that all of them were guys who trained/had affiliation with couture.
That's pretty much how most of his picks go. He simply picks guys who he's trained with before or has had some type of connection with.
Mir is a vegas guy just like Randy, and I think they trained together in the passed.
This is MMA and anything can happen, and I'm wrong all the time. But I don't see how Mir's chances are anything but very slim.
