i agree but how does this fight end up? the stand-up goes to Cain, the wresling cain, BJJ Mir by a mile, will the fight end up there? you're kinda taking Mir to win by sub, although Mir's stand-up is greatly improved. I heard Cain is comming of surgery, is that true?

i agree the line looks off

i was thinking Cain -200

The fight is 50 50. I personally have Mir favored.

He's been +400 0r higher too. I like mir's chances. If it goes to ground he can easily sub Cain. Stand up and power vastly improved last few yrs

I think Mir has like 5% chin left, and I think thats why the line is the way it is, if cain lands anything decent I think he auto wins, just my opinion, also cains a strong wrassler so frank will have to do something different to take him down ( cain probably won't take it to the mat). Gl on your plays

I don't get why they put some of these HW lines so big, these guys have the capability of KO'ing each other with one shot.   It's not like Mir isn't a capable fighter.  Way too easy for someone to get caught with a shot and go down at this size and weight.

Both Cain's striking and chin have always been overrated.  JDS KOing him in the first wasn't a fluke.  I like Frank's chances on the feet and on the ground.  To be fair though he has shown weakness on his back against wrestlers.

I played Mir, in a parlay, at +300. I wish I grabbed it earlier, and I think it gets bet down as the fight approaches

Agreed

Nate Diaz too. A lot of value as a 2-1 dog in a pickem fight, i think.

No Nate Diaz fight where his opponent has a clear and viable way of putting him on his back or pushing him against the fence, without being submitted is a pick 'em. See: Stevenson, Guida, McDonald, and DHK fights, granted the first two were a long time ago, and the latter two at 170.
