Mir got destroyed, just like I knew he would.

However, did you idiots watch the fight? He landed a hard knee and came within about a centimeter of landing a pretty vicious looking hook. Brock was scared to stand with him and he was panicking.



The most sure fire way to get your point across is to insult the users of this site. I'll have to try that next time.

You know I like Frank Mir but he's slowly losing me as a fan. He's starting to sound delusional like Tito Ortiz. You lost Frank get over it. Brock whipped you on the ground and took the title home and then got on his wife. Eventually I think there will be a Trilogy to this feud. But right now Frank needs to be quiet get back to business and beat the people he needs to beat to get his rematch. Because we all know Cain Velasquez and Shane Carwin are ahead of him in the hunt for a title shot.

I can already see the slow, steady decline of Mir's fan-base.



Personally, I would never say that I was a Mir fan to begin with. I never disliked the guy but never did hang from his sac, either. However, as I watched him as a coach on TUF, I just got to the point where I was on the fence about liking him. And then all of the pre-match hype for this fight w/Lesnar just put me over the edge.

"I dropped Nogueria."

And now, Frank...

"I was destroyed by a WWE wrestler."

By the way...

"Close" only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.

Unfortunetly for Franky if or when they do fight again he isnt going to get any closer. He must still be concussed.

Maybe he is talking about the one that Brock "took out of his ass"???


I never cared for Mir myself. I didn't watch TUF 9 and tried to avoid the pre-100 hype, though what I did see bothered me. However, even if GSP said stuff like this it would bother me.

Agreed. I've never been a big fan of trash talk when it's taken to the extreme that Mir and Lesnar took it. A perfect example would be Donald Cerrone. He's one of my favorite fighters but his recent comments directed towards Jamie Varner have really irked me. Too much more of that will cause me to stop rooting for him.

I was a Mir fan for this fight because of my disgust with Brock Lesnar. Notice how everybody is flocking to Shane Carwin because he seems the biggest challenge for Lesnar at heavyweight? (If Cain wins, he'll get even more fans suddenly too.)

People pay to see Lesnar hoping he loses. It's the complete opposite of the Fedor effect. It's surreal, really.

Though I don't disagree with this statement, I'd like to say I personally watch to see how much he's improved from fight to fight.

Oh and because I'm a UFC wh*re.

He had Lesnar backpedaling and then threw in the Urijah-like flying knee and it was all downhill from there.

And by the way...I'm about sick of Mir praising his own standup as if he's some world class striker. It makes me want to puke.



amen

This confirms my opinion that Mir has a serious narcissistic personality disorder. Not that there's anything wrong with that since it will make people want to see him get his ass kicked more, and result in more money for him for being that kind of commodity.

Everyone keeps on complaining about Brock and his size and that's all he has. Well every other HW has the chance to get that big if they want. Second people still complain about him laying on top of people and holding them down. Isn't this what Matt Hughes did when he first came into the sport he was the bigger WW who over powered people and ground and pounded them.

Frank has always been like this, I'm not surprised the least bit.

True, but this all comes with experience, Brock had never been hurt in a fight so he was always going to panic. The more he gets hurt in fights the better he will deal with the situation, his trainers will sit him down and tell him what he should have done and what to do in the future when he's been rocked.
