With a quick submission victory at UFC 74 over Antoni Hardonk, Frank Mir is on yet another upswing on his roller coaster career. How does everyone think he looked? His takedown, though sucessful, looked shaky. However, he did a good job of setting it up by gettin off first with a few strikes in the standup exchange directly before his shot.
Also i actually thought Hardonk looked better off his back in this fight than he did against team punishment's Justin McCully given he was up against a much more dangerous submissions fighter in Mir.

He seemed very out of breath when Rogan interviewed him.

What are you guys LOADED? I had to wh*** myself out on the street corner just to get the pay-per-view paid for, and you guys are paying for the UFC on Demand fights?

I think that Mir is never going to be what he was. 5 years ago when he was just exploding on the scene he was very impressive. But he's been a total let down since coming back. I see a bone thrown to him every now and again, but nothing big enough that he'll choke on it.

UFC On Demand is actually kinda cheap. $2 per fight or if you want to pay upfront for 6 months at a time, it works out to $10 a month for unlimited downloads. That's just $10 or so more than one PPV. I'm gonna sign up sometime if my PC can handle it (it probably can).

It's kind of hard to assess his performance because all he did was take him down and submit him, he wasn't really tested at all in this fight. It was too quick to see if he's back to his old self. The takedown was kind of sloppy though.

Takedown was a little weird looking, I'll admit. Almost like Hardonk wanted to go down.

I think Mir was his former self... I mean when before didn't he look and move confidently and efficiently? Sure there wasn't much of a test, but often times that has been the case with Mir

Frank looked very good.. It doesnt mean anything though he would get crushed by a solid HW... I think he may get Brock Lesnar next(gun to head..BOOM!!!)

Try youtube, dailymotion, the video section prolly has some links, just look around on any video site you use or any mma site. I'll see if I can find the link.

I'll tell you what would be a hell of a fight...Mir vs Vera. That would be a war I think. But since Vera has to go beat Sylvia first...you ought to throw Lesnar to Mir so he can tap him quick then go for Vera
