What is strange about Myrasty fights is that seemingly no matter what style his opponents seem to favor they automatically become a mirror image of Myrasty when fighting him.
And I believe Tie would do the same. He's too smart to do it all 10 times, but I think he would fall into the same pattern, and history proves it.
Domi utilzed the spin cycle well against much larger opponents. It's more effective against bigger guys than smaller guys with lower centers of gravity. Domi would have an easier time getting a guy like Francois Leroux
off balance with the spin than a guy like Mirasty. I'm not saying he couldn't, but he wouldn't do it as consistantly as you guys are suggesting.
On top of that, Domi a lot of times seemed to get cocky against guys his size and smaller when fighting them. If you look over his fights, you'll see that he often abandoned the spin cycle in favour of trying to stand there and pummel people. He wasn't throwing fast pistons like Mirasty, but he stood there throwing with bad intentions without spinning.
Those were fights that Domi usually struggled with. He stood there with guys like Corson, Vukota, Laus, Berube, Ray, Odgers, Churla, McCarty etc. and looked a lot more ordinary than when he was spinning and slaying giants. He tried to stand there with Grant Marshall
and look what happened to him.
Also try to keep in mind that if these fights went long (and there's no reason to think they wouldn't) Mirasty has better stamina than Tie.
