Frank Mir UFC 107Former UFC heavyweight champion  has always taken a rather blunt approach to assessing not only his opponents, but also himself, and things are no different when he talks about his pending fight with current UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos at Saturday night’s UFC 146 in Las Vegas.

That’s not to say that Mir doesn’t think he can stand and trade with dos Santos; he’s worked hard to round out his game. But on Saturday, if Mir can get his Brazilian foe to the mat, you better believe it will happen.

Check out this and what else Frank Mir had to say at Wednesday’s UFC 146 open workouts in Las Vegas…
