Just my opinion but Frank Mir is finished now in MMA. He risks a severe beating or permanent injury if he carries on as its clear he is less than half the fighter he once was. There are alot of HW fighters now who could give him a doing................

Brandon Vera vs Frank Mir at UFC 65!

Sources close to MMAWeekly have confirmed that former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir will take on up-and-comer Brandon “The Truth” Vera at UFC 65. This match-up, rumored to be scheduled for UFC 63, has been moved back to add a marquee fight to the UFC 65 card.

Mir (9-2) is coming off of a victory over Dan Christison at UFC 61 ‘Bitter Rivals’. The former champ came into the fight unprepared and earned an uninspired decision over the former Ultimate Fighter contestant. Having just fought in July, it’ll be interesting to see if Frank will have the proper time to train for this fight.

Brandon Vera (7-0) will risk his undefeated streak against his toughest test to date. “The Truth” is coming off of an impressive submission win over the tough Assuerrio Silva at UFC 60.

A win for Mir would revitalize his career and put him one step closer to title contention. A loss could put him at a crossroads. For Vera, this will be the significant fight that he’s been seeking. If he is victorious, he would join Jeff Monson as top contenders for current UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia’s belt.

It was actually scheduled for UFC 62 according to Brandon Vera's website the other day, but it changed a day later to 63, and now to 65.  Mir looked like hammered shit in his last two fights, Vera on the other hand, finished a guy that niether Aleks Emelianenko or Tim Sylvia could put away.  Good luck Mir, you will need it.

Unless he really gets back to 100% form, Vera will hurt Mir now.  He's just getting better while Mir is a shell of his former self Undecided

Vera would wreck Mir.  Mir doesn't look like the same fighter.  He showed little conditioning, his striking looked terrible, and he should have lost to Christensen.

Mir will kill him  . . . . if it is a donut eating contest.
