with his much improved standup/striking he showed against nyguira he showed that he can knock out a veteran and one of the greatest fighters in the sport who has never been knocked out before, look for him to destroy brock lesnar in the upcoming title fight. if you don't remember last time he fought lesnar he made lesnar tapout .... that was before mir could box like a champ .... Mir will dominate
I don't agree with you. Nogueira is a good boxer but not a dangerous one and he has a very bad habit : getting punished at every fight before starting to fight back so it's easy to put him in danger.
Frank Mir is overrated because everyone talks about his BJJ black belt but look at the guy he has submitted....
Roberto Traven and Pete Williams were at the end of there career, he couldn't do anything against Wes Sims who came from Team Hammer House so no doubt he suck in submission, he subbed Anthony hardonk who is not a very good guy on the ground and against Nogueira he didn't want to go on the gound so ok he is a BJJ Black belt but he has not prove anything at all. Brock is not gonna follow Mir and takes shot like Nogueira did, he's gonna answer and punish Frank.
No disrespect to Mir because every fighter deserve credit to have the balls to be in the octagon, but there are too many noises from Mir for nothing.

Lesnar definitely has a strength and wrestling advantage. Lesnar's fight with Couture was 8 months before his next fight agains Mir. If you were Lesnar what would have you worked on for those 8 months? Submission defense of course. Mir knocked a weakened and sick Nogueira who had a staff infection and was hospitalized for a week just 15 days before the fight. Nogueira himself said that his condition definitely had an outcome on the fight. Even Cro Cop and Fedor couldn't knock out Nogueira, what makes you think that Mir could have pulled that off so easily? Lesnar by Donkey-Kong T-off in the 3rd.

The fight between Lesnar and Mir, was Lesnars FIRST mma fight ever...and Mir caught him, luckily, in and ankle lock. You forget that Mir was getting his head smashed in before that. When Lesnar fought Cotoure, he manhandled him the entire fight, there was only one time that Cotoure almost had him on the ground and Cotoure takes down EVERYBODY!! THe improved Mir will be fighting and improved Lesnar, and in my book, the later of the two is FAR more intimidating. Mir's best chance against Lesnar is in a submission, but you have to get inside and get him on the ground first, and that would play right into Lesnars strength. Lesnar in the 3rd...by tko

Frank is best fighter submission for Lesnar !!!
Was it just me or did anyone else notice the resemblance between Frank Mir and SpongeBob's dad after the second Lesnar fight?
I dont think anybody can trash talk MIr, his fights are not very impressive nor is his career. But he is a good fighter I guarantee that almost nobody would be able to handle Lesnars size and power on top of them most def. with an isolated arm. He's 30 now and supposedly fighting congo? Give him a chance to make a name for himself before down grading him. He dont choose his fights.
Frank Mir is probably one of my favourite heavy weight fighters. His striking is great, but his submissions are even better. im sick of watching blood bath fights, with no technique put into it.
I would love to see Frank Mir vs Fedor. all though, the outcome is probably obvious.
pssst, Kimo, Mir destroyed Kongo.
The best submission heavyweight, and one of the best submission specialists overall.. But i like watching him getting beat up, cause of the attitude of his.
A good fighter, and an ass
Wow this guy said he wanted to break Lesnar's neck the next fight. I seriously dislike this fighter...overrated doesn't even begin to sum it up. Roy Nelson out grappled him.
Id love to see what Lesnar would do to this fella again if they rematch.
It's too bad that a few fighters have to let their mouths go, rather than their fists, just the other week Mac Danzig an Irish MMA fighter, said that he wished Dan Hardy would die of AIDS, like wtf...You have to realize that as a fighter in a growing sport, people will take notice of what you say, and this isn't like the WWE, where its based in fiction with a story line, everything you say is taken seriously. I like Mir outside of the ring with his commentary in the WEC, so it really surprised me that such a seemingly intelligent individual would let anger get the better of him. Especially when in martial arts, or any sport for that matter, anger can actually be a detriment and lead to your downfall.
Frank Mir's Striking has increased dramatically, I would Dana White to have Lesnar or Carwin stand up with Mir, they dont Stand A chance, The only Heavyweight with Better Stand Up in the UFC than Mir is Junior Dos Santos, Mir has to get stronger if he wouldnt have gotten injured in the \motor Cycle he would be 15-3 not 13-5
Mir didn't really show that great striking against Carwin. Lol

i love u.
1.) mir won the heavyweight champion ship at a very young age while he was new at this
2.)after the accident he made an amazing recovery and his will to put on muscle and everything, give him props, you keyboard warriors would just get 20pounds of fat from sitting behind the screen all day
3.) no striking? tko nogueira, first man to tko him... chieck kongo flew, cro cop knee, and roy well nobody ko'ed roy
4.) no submission, the list goes on and on, and the latest, first man in mma to not only submit nogueira, but BREAK his arm

I love Mir, he is my favorite plus he is HOT ahah, he gets better and better, overcoming the accident he had is pretty amazing, ppl that dotn like him actually took the time to come here and yap negative stuff about him? really? I mean REALLY?lol how much free time do those ppl have?!theres a few fighters I cant stand but would never go and say dumb stuff but I guess thats just me ANYWAYS...the only thing I want to see Mir do is to be more forward be more agressif, looks like he often wait too long he always want to see the oponent see what they gonna do and it put him in a bad spot,hes boxing has improved a lot, I loved the fight with Kongo especially after the stare down, they say Mir cocky...but anyway he showed him...and for gawdsakes I read so much comments on this rematch with Big Nog off youtube and other sites...ppl crying about the fact Nog got his arm broken, by putting comments like that they insult Big Nog more then anything cause the guy knew damn right to either tap or this would happen where the hell ppl think his arm was going? bounce back foward and get out of the submission?lol...Nog a tough dude and a pro especially in submission, so he knew what he was getting into, plus anyone should know when mir grab, u better tap or something will brake......and Mir was very classy when Rogan talked to him after the fight he said " I hope Nogueira is okay, this is part of the game, and this doesnt take anything away from him"...oh and one last thing...Ppl saying he was out, Herb Dean is the best ref if Mir was out he would of stop the fight, he saw Mir grabbing Nog leg and was moving.....that was a hell of a comeback. That gave him the submission of the century as per Dana White:):)....AMEN
Hope he'll be back soon in killer shape. This dude's a badass.
