link Frank Mir has taken his first verbal shots at UFC 119 opponent Mirko ‘CroCop’ Filipovic, accusing the Croatian of ‘making excuses’ and claiming he will submit the PRIDE FC grand prix champion in the first round.

I loved it, Mir at his cocky best. I'm still hoping to see him get knocked out, Cro Cop actually has a decent shot at winning this fight. I think we all forget how overrated Mir is sometimes. Cro Cop's strengths and weaknesses match up quite well with Mir.

Mir shouldn't accuse anyone of making excuses.

Stop all the hatorade LOL! Mir cracks me up, and he is a great athlete. He has talked trash about everybody. He talked trash before his motor cycle accident as well. He uses the trash talk to get into his opponents head. CroCop is fragile man. The guy has been really frustrated with media, and the Barry fight was the most honest he's ever been about it. Mir is obviously trying to create more press, and get more cameras in Mirko's face for the next two weeks. It's strategical. Now I do realize that he has only been subbed once, and that was by Big Nog in pride via armbar. I don't really see Mir catching him in that type of situation, but I do think he will win this fight and fairly easily.

Mir is a love him or hate him kinda fighter. I love him. I think most of his 'sh$% talking' and criticism is hilarious and true.

While I'm not the biggest Mir fan, he's definitely right about the excuses. I remember thinking that Cro Cop was being a straight up pansy when he made those comments about not being 100%. I hate it when bitches make excuses like that



Oh really? Taking a fight on 5 weeks notice against a high level fighter that has been training for months. So the guys being honest and that makes him a bitch. Hope he KO's and shuts the mouths of people like you everywhere

I don't but one thing is true, he just created an excuse for himself if he loses.

I think using the term overrated is overrated.

There as good as they are and fans opinions change with the wind.

Two great fighters in their own right who could kick the crap out of 99.9% of the human population.

This is a harsh but brutally true statement....if you don't agree then go out there and train with some of these guys (or fight one if you have the stones) and you will learn the truth the hard way....they train daily for hours on how to beat people up....that's like fighting me and any squad of my Marines with guns.....you'd have to be retarted!
