MMA  > General MMA  > Frank Mir more respect?
July 8, 2009, 10:00 AM
I think I was giving Frank Mir more respect then he deserves.

I know all fighters smack talk but I personally think he sounded like an idiot in a recent interview.

I give him this, his "ground game" is definately his advantage by either Lesnar putting himself into a position to be submitted ot Frank working Brock into a submission.....However, Mir said that his striking game is better then Brocks and if it stays STANDING then Mir will have the edge there as well!

Is he serious or just hyping the fight? Does he not remember standing toe-to-toe with Brandon Vera whom was arguably way to small at heavy and rightfully belonged at LH? I do! He got owned in the clinch and KTFO by Brandon Vera in round number 1. If Frank trys to stand and exchange with Lesnar he won't make it past round 1. I don't think that is an insane prediction by any stretch of the imagination.

My other favorite remark, based on the fact that I guess he forgot the first fight due to those hard shots, Frank said Brock's shots on the ground don't hurt, Lesnar just peppers you with little shots that are annoying! Wow Frank, thats not what your face said even after 60 seconds!

I hope Lesnar doesn't fight angry because then he is liable to make another mistake, or to quote Brock, "I gave him that knee bar and he knows that!" I don't think Brock gave him anything, rookie mistake and shame on you if you repeat it.
