Junior Dos Santos just creamed Frank Mir

Man, what a sh*t kicking that was. It feels like just yesterday that our collective jaws dropped watching some kid named Junior Dos Santos working pads like a warrior poet (BRAVEHEART REFERENCE RAAAR) at the UFC 90 open workouts. Nearly four years later he is the champion, and it looks like he could stay in that position for a long time to come. Certainly longer than anyone else in UFC history – no one has managed to defend the heavyweight belt more than twice.

It was clear from the opening bell what Frank Mir’s strategy was: take the fight to the ground. But once Dos Santos started landing, that was the end of any kind of rational gameplan execution. From there Frank stood right in front of Junior and got boxed up til a shot to the temple wobbled him and a flurry saw him face plant seconds away from the end of the first round.

To Frank’s credit, he got right back up and came out for more in the next round. And Junior Dos Santos was more than happy to serve up a second helping. At this point there’s no denying Junior’s status as the hardest hitter in the UFC. Even if he hasn’t put you away in the first minute, he’ll still have beaten the fight out of you.

    I have been saying this for 3 freaking years…. oh wait, its not cain…. well whatevs…

    I think healthy Cain vs JDS need to do it again.

  • Voice of Reason

    JDS will beat Cain via decision in the rematch. You heard it here first.

    I’m a fatass and all, but Mir was sooooooo fat. and heavy.  He had gotten so lean a while back that I thought he had a chance of outgrappling JDS.

    I’m looking forward to the next title match.

    Certainly longer than anyone else? First, he needs to win his second defense and since that’s gonna be against Cain Velasquez who just butchered Bigfoot in one of the most gruesome bloodbaths in UFC history (without breaking a sweat)… Lucky punches only land so often, my money’s on Cain.

    mir attempted one takedown. and then never even thought about grabbing a single or shooting again.
    what did he spend his camp doing? jerking around and laying on his back?
    taking down dos santos was his only shot at winning. and he attempted 1 takedown. where was his corner? why weren’t they screaming for it?

  • Ron Jeremy

    JDS vs Cain II
    Mir vs Brock III or Mir retires.

  • Denton

    The best part was the Mir granby roll to nowhere and getting a hammer fist for his efforts.
