Mein, who had been on a six fight win streak which included victories against Evangelista ‘Cyborg’ Santos, Marius Zaromskis, and Joe Riggs, prepares to meet Tyler ‘The Evolution’ Stinson (23-8) Saturday night as part of the Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Kennedy event in Oregon. For Mein, who was a guest on “The MMA Show with Mauro Ranallo”, fighting Stinson is like looking into a mirror and battling himself as both. “Me and Tyler are basically in the same position coming off loses, having basically the same records and a lot of the same style. I think everything matches up really well for us to go out there big and I think it’s very important to get a quick win and be entertaining so I can stay at the top of the Strikeforce ranks where I belong.”
