White: Mir vs. Overeem is definitely do or die


Former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir is on a three-fight losing streak, losing to a murderer's row of Junior dos Santos, Daniel Cormier and Josh Barnett.

Former K-1 heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem is a two-fight losing streak, by KO, to Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva and Travis Browne.

UFC President Dana White was asked in a media scrum on Thursday in Toronto, Ontario, Canada if the fight was "do or die."

"Yeah, definitely, definitely," said White.

Neither fighter comes cheap. Overeem made $285,714 in his loss to Bigfoot, while Mir made $200,000 for each of his last two losses.

What do you think UG? Will White release the loser? And who do you think the loser will be?

WHOA!  Ban this bitch!  At first I thought that he was referring to the fact that Mir was white to mean that it was an unfortunate marketable advantage that still exist in this country. However, it sounds to me that this MORAN, actually feels that his skin color is superior.  "Does it rain much?"  Clearly he is trying to imply that the poster must be some darkskinned guy from the Bush on the continent of Africa.

You must be from the part of the world, where being white isn't a advantage.What's it like over there, does it rain much? How's the real state?

Mir is a future HoFer I think. Really don't think he deserves to be cut although I'd say he ought to retire with a bad loss here.

It's not his skills it's his goddamn gameplan. I've watched him try to 'conserve' energy by laying on the cage and thinking he's going to wear the other guy out and ends up getting ktfoI've seen at least 3 fights he's done that shit in.Just ONCE, I'd like to see him go out in the 1st round like a crazed killer or at least like he was when he beat/boxed/kicked Nog.Cmon Murr. He's friggin huge in person, I met him in Vegas in 06 when he fought Vera-he's even bigger now
