I'm concerned for Frank Mir!
I mean, after he lost to Lesnar there were reports of him spiralling into a depression and then he turned into a crazy stalker, obsessed with Lesnar.
The way he spoke coming into this fight with Carwin, he really used some heavy words, he sounded focused and ready to destroy.

But now that he lost, I wonder if he is going to be ok?? Mir doesn't seem like the guy who knows how to lose. I wonder if this loss and the fact that he won't be able to get a chance to avenge his loss to Lesnar is going to send him into another depression??

Should Mir seek therapy?

He said recently he wasn't obsessed with Lesnar. Just in finding a way to beat him.

Now he can be obessed with finding a way to beat Carwin. I dont want to say he was looking past Carwin, but maybe he was more focused on Lesnar. Long story short....suicide watch for Mir.

the bottom line is that frank mir, even though he denies it, is obsessed with Lesnar. he considerate too much on Lesnar and not enough on Carwin. that was his down fall.

Yeah I believe Frank Mir thought he had already won and just assumed he was gonna get another shot at Lesnar.

I gotta say I'm happy though. I wasn't ready to see Mir/Lesnar 3. I want to see Lesnar fight a few different HW's before another fight with Mir.

Mir came out flat, it was like he wasn't even in the fight, I don't know what he was thinking or if he was thinking at all.

Calm down everyone. Mir will get a fight he can win next, and after Carwin beats brock, we'll see Mir/Lesnar 3.

That being siad, I'm worried about the mental health of Frank Mir only because I'm afraid Carwin gave him Brain Damage from that beatdown he gave him.

I thought it was funny when i read on another site someone said something to the effect of: In Mir's mind, Mir's too cool to move his head and avoid getting hit.

made me chuckle a bit because he didn't move his head against Lesnar last time and he didn't move his head against Carwin (that's probably because he didn't know where his head was after he took the first uppercut)

Franks mental health can definently be questioned as of lately.
It would probably do him some good to step away for a minute and look at the situation from the outside. Fighting isn't everything. Their's a whole world out their and to be obsessed with one dude who talked smack to you after a beatdown isn't worth the additional hell your putting yourself through.
Now that's easier said than done.
It would have to be devistating to get humilated in front of millions of people like that,but it's not like Frank is without his own victory against the big,bad Lesnar man. And he's certainly still one of the best HW's in the game.
Look on the bright side Franky.
