UFC 100 Betting Odds: Frank Mir vs Brock Lesnar...Again

Brock Lesnar (-215 Sportsbook) vs. Frank Mir (+190 BetUS)

The second time around the lines for this fight have opened up about the same as they were a year and a half ago.

Frank Mir, former Heavyweight Champ, has slowly worked his way back into top form since his accident in 2004. After a difficult loss to Brandon Vera at UFC 65, he has turned things around defeating Antonio Hardonk, Brock Lesnar, and most recently Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. All of his recent wins have been impressive finishes and he seems to only be gaining momentum. So why after only a year and a half is he still considered an underdog to someone he's already beaten.

MMA handicappers and the betting public believe that Brock Lesnar has developed real skills since their last meeting and that his freakish size and athleticism will now create a greater advantage. It's obvious from their last meeting that Mir can take some abuse and has the skill to submit opponents of any size. He's also shown some nice improvements in his striking and will hopefully put to test the chin of Lesnar. But we've also seen the massive damage Lesnar's hands can do.

Still plenty of time to think about this one, but if you think Mir can survive the huge bricks on the ends of Lesnars arms, he looks a little attractive at the current line.
