Jim Ross predicts the winner of the UFC 100 fight between Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir, GSP vs. Thiago Alves, and offers additional comments on Jerry Lawler running for mayor
Jul 11, 2009 - 02:45 PM


WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross updated the blog section of JRsbarbq.com. The following items are among the highlights.

-Ross on tonight's Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir UFC fight: "Lesnar weighed in at 265 at the official weigh in on Friday but you can count on Brock tipping the scales at 280ish come Saturday night. Brock will likely outweigh his adversary Frank Mir by approximately 30 pounds and even with that size disparity Mir won't have an edge in speed and quickness. Mir does have a decided advantage in MMA experience and has talked a damn good game going into the fight to help sell PPV's.

"I stick by my prediction that if Brock doesn't make any foolish mistakes early that Lesnar will destroy MIr who will be a HUGE favorite in the arena. Brock once told me that getting booed motivated him to scary levels like when he was a heavyweight wrestler at Minnesota and they would travel to Iowa to compete and where Brock was looked upon as if he was Satan himself there in Iowa City. Lesnar will be booed out of the arena Saturday night in Las Vegas and I don't think that he would have it any other way."

Powell's POV: I'm with Ross. Lesnar wins the fight in convincing fashion. He's a natural heel and those boos won't distract him any way. Of course, Mir beat him last time and is always a mistake away from winning a fight, but I like Lesnar to smother his opponent and become the Undisputed UFC Hvt. Champion.

-Ross on Jerry Lawler: "If Jerry wins the mayoral race this Fall, WWE will be in the unique position to attempt to replace the WWE Hall of Famer on Monday Night Raw which won't be an easy task."

Powell's POV: It's time to call up Matt Striker from AAA if The King trades in his crown for the mayor gig. Nothing against Lawler, but my money is on him losing the race and remaining on Raw. Best of luck to him, though.

-Ross on the Georges St. Pierre vs. Thiago Alves fight for the UFC Welterweight Championship: "I am also very interested in the GSP-Alves match up as many of my friends who follow MMA here in Oklahoma feel that St. Pierre is in deep jeopardy against a uniquely skilled opponent who will also have a decided weight advantage come fight time. Both men weighed in at 170 but Thiago Alves is expected to be closer to 200 pounds Saturday night and will probably outweigh the ultra talented and classy GSP by 20 pounds or so. I'm a huge GSP fan and hope that he can pull this one out of the fire but from all accounts this will be GSP's toughest fight of his amazing career."

Powell's POV: Another gem of a fight based on what the experts are saying. I'm also looking forward to Dan Henderson vs. Michael Bisping. Go Henderson!

Other topics include whether there's enough main event talent for two-hour wrestling shows, more on Brock Lesnar and Jerry Lawler, and Smackdown's Chris Jericho vs. Rey Mysterio match.
