Who thinks Fedor would submit Mir?

Ive been reading alot of posts lately that say Fedor is a way better submission artist than Mir and hed submit Brock by armbar no problem, is he a that great of submission artist? cause I dont think so. I feel its his overall game thats the best, but the best submission in the world at HW, I just dont know, what are your thoughts.

Fedor submit Mir? No, Fedor's actual submissions aren't as good as Mir but his positioning and overall grappling are probably better so he would be more likely to get Lesnar in a position to apply a submission than Mir.

Fedor has subbed way more guys, and way better opponents. I don't think Mir has subbed anyone who has a good ground game at all. Roberto Traven was the best ground game he faced, but he wasn't really a good MMA fighter. Fedor subs Mir 8/10, but that's just my opinion.

I think Fedor would go for the GnP and either finish it that way or by decision. Trying sub Mir would be a guaranteed decision IMHO.
