There is nothing in there to highlight his "above average" Muay Thai as such a thing doesn't exist. The fact that you think his Muay Thai is above average is a clear explanation as to why you believe Mir to be a stand-up god.

You simply cannot say that a guy who, after missing with punches, flails a halfhearted backfist at his opponent is a good striker because that's what children who lace up boxing gloves for fun do. He has no balance, no concept of setting up offense, his jab looks like it's moving through jello, his kicks are awkward and weak, and his winging hooks looked like the work of a mongoloid who was just taught to punch. The only thing going for him is an above average Chin and that's not enough for the UFC. He should go back to hosting TV shows because he's going to be nothing but a heavy bag for any decent MW.
at this.. i was saying, "whoa! what the..." after mayhem did that...

Mayhems boxing is frighteningly bad and he gassed. It was a poor effort. Hopefully he was dead at the weight but I can't see him acheiving anything at 205 in the UFC.

I thought something looked totally wrong with him physically. He just seemed to be tired or injured or sick or something. Not that I thought he'd beat Bisping, but regardless of whether worthless shit heads like metalmandible want to make themselves sound like badass authorities at his expense, he's a much better fighter than that. I hope he had the flu or something because otherwise he got really old really fast.

The military teaches you about adrenaline dumps. I think he got so hyped up wanting to prove himself and got so excited that he let his nerves get to him and BOOM! He gassed just that quick... He had no problem grappling with Shields for 5 rounds.

Yeah I think so as well. He was WAY too hyped up during the ringwalk. Looked like a wide-eyed, excited, nervous kid. Bisping looked like a professional showing up to another day at work.

I thought with his experience that would be the LAST thing he'd be worried about. It was the shock of actually being relevent in the UFC. Oh well, he'll get another chance in the UFC hopefully.

He always comes out like that doesn't he?

This was NOT the same guy who fought Shields.

He was shite.

Yeah, I've never seen Mayhem fight before that, so I was kinda disappointed.

It's weird because I'm sure you're right and he does come out like that all the time. You'd figure that with him being such a high-energy type of guy, that he would be used to that. It had to be something because I can't believe that his cardio would seriously be that poor. Maybe he had some kind of panic attack or something.

Yea what it boils down to is an actual TYPE of panic attack... No bullshit. The military gives it some funky ass name.

Mayhem aint fought since Sept 2010, I think we can give him a pass for the piss poor showing guys. He's always in top shape, let's wait until his next fight, I doubt he'll be doing a Baroni then
