Mir’s gonna make Brock a star!

On the surface, putting Brock Lesnar up against Frank Mir in his first UFC bout may seem like a pretty ballsy move. Of course, that’s only because everyone keeps forgetting Frank Mir sucks cheesy balls. And no, I don’t think that statement only applies to post-accident Mir. Honestly, I don’t think Frank Mir has ever been half as good as everyone has always made him out to be.

Like Vitor Belfort, fans never know ‘which guy’ is gonna show up when Frank Mir fights: The fatty fat fat lazy fucker, or the relatively in shape lazy fucker? Either way, it’s gonna take a pretty big fluke for Brock Lesnar to lose to Frank Mir.

So hey … congrats to the UFC! You guys picked the perfect dude to set Brock Lesnar up with. Beating a former UFC champ gives you instant cred, even if Mir’s tenure as title holder was spent in a hospital half dead. And hey, beat Mir and people are going to say “Wow, Lesnar has the ability to beat guys with a solid ground game.”

Bullshit. The only reason Frank Mir hasn’t washed out of the UFC already is because he’s balls deep with UFC brass. I’m sure he’s not thrilled at the idea of having to fight Brock Lesnar, but hey … Zuffa did him a favor by hooking him up as a WEC commentator, so one good turn deserves another, right? Mir already did a pretty good job of validating Brandon Vera’s overhyped reputation. So why not Lesnar too?

    Mir is better than you give him credit for.

    whos gonna believe your opinions when you think ken shamrock can beat fedor? whos gonna believe ya when you say mark hunt almost submitted fedor?

    Honestly, I’m gonna be watching this fight for bullshit. I love me some Frank Mir, but he’s creepy tight with UFC. I’m guessing the UFC will probably try to hand MIR a dirty under the table deal to take an easy fall for Brock… Cash in hand and leg intact or UFC pissed that you ruined their up and coming golden boy kinda deal. Fucking mother fuckers. I hope Mir remembers he’s nobody’s bitch and breaks that punk bitch’s fucking arm. Compound fracture, fuck Brock Lesnar.

    The Vera comment was uncalled for……hard to fight a guy with a broken hand….


    Damn, pretty harsh things to say about a guy who easily broke Tim Sylvia’s arm early in the first round. I agree that Mir was never as good as people said he was but to say that he has no chance against a washed a pro wrestler who only has one MMA fight is ridiculous.

    3 words for everyone……..Pe de Pano…….

    Brock Lesnar only has the wrestling pedigree at the moment. In addition, pure wrestlers always tend to make habitual mistakes. I think you are severely underestimating Mir and I like the matchup.

  • Xavier

    No, the smart fight for the UFC would have been putting him in with Arlovski. Putting a wrestler with sick takedowns against a one-dimensional puncher is the smart, easy way to victory for a new fighter.

    Putting him in with someone who knows submission defense is not safe at all. Though this is a smart fight, if Mir subs Brock, they can tout Mir as being back on the road to glory. If Brock beats Mir, they can tout Brock as beating a former UFC champion and a still game fighter.

    End of the day, I’m really surprised they gave Brock such a tough matchup, a dangerous matchup really, rather than say… the Eddie Sanchez special.

    No way. Pre-accident Mir was a beast of a man. You try to simply punch a bag hard for five minutes and see what you get. I think Mir could easily lose but he’s still no chump. Vera’s now overhyped? Go back and listen to his corner between the first and second round. They tell him to just not use his hand and kick his way to victory then. Why?? Because it was broke. You gotta alot of hate for talented people. To keep fighting with a broke hand, against a man as big as Tim shows heart, period. Even Couture thought Vera would win the fight, what he bought hype too? Get real.

    Xavier, how the fuck do you mean, Arlovski is a one dimensional puncher? Dude’s a sambo slinging mofo who heel-hooked Tim Silvia into submitting. His ground game is pretty damn slick.

  • Ason

    Mir is so calm in the cage. It’s kinda scary.

  • Xavier

    “who heel-hooked Tim Silvia into submitting.”

    Sylvia was already cold-cocked and basically knocked out when he slapped that on. Since then, Arlovski has shown absolutely no ground game.

    Tisk, tisk, Fightlinker. I don’t know why you assume that a former pro-wrestler who never had a real fight (no that fat Japanese guy doesn’t count) is gonna walk through Mir. Its a tough fight for Brock and it will show us how good he really is. If penis-chest’s BJJ is wack, hes fucked.

  • kermit.01

    Either way it should be fun to watch. I think we’ll likely to see the best Mir we’ve seen since the accident. I mean if he loses this fight he becomes a walking joke.

    Brock-Andre would have been interesting- While Andre might have a great long list of accomplishments– aside from that heel hook he’s always looked extremely uncomfortable on the ground.

    I’m sure brock is going to be training with allot of people to get ready and we’ll see soon enough if all he can do is wrestle…

    Xavier: fair enough.
