Alistair Overeem and Frank Mir are two of the biggest stars in the heavyweight division, but they could be battling for their UFC lives at UFC 169 on Saturday.
In his UFC debut, Overeem established himself as a top contender by steamrolling former champion Brock Lesnar. However, the former Strikeforce titleholder has not won since then, losing to Antonio Silva and Travis Browne along the way.
Meanwhile, Mir has been slumping since his memorable submission win over Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. That victory earned him a title shot, which resulted in a knockout loss to Junior dos Santos. Mir followed that up with additional defeats against Daniel Cormier and Josh Barnett.
With this pivotal heavyweight clash approaching, here is a look at how Overeem and Mir match up in all areas.
