Mir is right - Fedor IS a small HW. I could see Fedor having some problems off his back against a guy like Lesnar. Brett Rogers did put him in a little bit of trouble and he's not exactly the cream of the crop.
Didn't this 'Fedor being in trouble' result in two sub attempts and then Fedor getting back to his feet?

And right back at topic...

After having watched WEC 46 and not being annoyed by Frank for a change, I find it kind of sad that he just can't stop running his mouth. Especially sad since the new 265lbs Mir looked very promising in his last fight. He makes it really hard for me to like him.

Every single time Mir opens his mouth and talks his shit, I love him just a little bit more haha. However, I agree with what 'Thelegend' said, in that Fedor can hold his own against larger opponents.

I agree with Mir.

If Fedor were to come to the UFC and fight Lesnar, Mir, Carwin, Velasquez and Dos Santos I think he would lose at least one of the fights. All these fighters are tougher fights then Fedor has seen in years.

He may win most of them as he is a great fighter but he would struggle at times. Especially with Lesnar(who I think Mir is talking about specifically with this comment), as much as Fedor fans hate to admit it Fedor has never fought a fighter like Lesnar and he would have a very tough time with his strength and size. Mir is a much larger fighter with pretty darn good wrestling and BJJ and Lesnar pinned him down and bullied him. I actually think Fedor's only real chance of beating Lesnar would be to knock him out in the first minute of each round, I think he would just be trying to survive the rest of the fight.

I love how you guys hate him when he talks, yet he's obviously one of the top 5 heavyweights in the world. If you expect him not to run his mouth, you must be crazy. It's a division filled with really tough guys who put their wellbeing on the line, I say they should be free to talk all the trash they want, it hypes fights and they deserve to be allowed to say what they want.

I think he has a point, as the MMA sport continues to raise its level its getting harder to compete without cutting to the maximum weight in your division, UFC 100 confirmed this for Mir, its hard to say that Brock is a more all round skilful fighter that Mir, but he used his size advantage efficiently to neutralise Franks superior fighting skills.

On an ever par I think it would be a much more interesting fight and I think Frank is right that in the future to raise to the top of the Heavy Weight division you are going to need both the skills and the size as more top fighters with the skills start to cut in at 265.

Yah cause Frank Mir has no troubles at all with Brock Lesnar on top of him smashing his face. Of course Fedor would have trouble with big guys like Lesnar who the f-ck wouldnt. But he has always prevailed and showed us why he is the best HW fighter of all time. Mir can talk all the sh-t he wants it really means nothing until we see Fedor in there with them. I agree he would have trouble with Lesnar but as for Mir and the rest of them I dont really give them a chance.

Frank is like the wimpy kid who puts on 10lbs and all of a sudden thinks he can call out the top dogs.


And I'd bet my house that Mir would lose to Rogers.

Mir is a good fighter. top 5 IMO. JDS will smash him tho i reckon

I have never seen anything to suggest Fedor would lose to anyone, though i guess it could happen

makes me laugh when ppl say he will lose, and it makes me laugh when ppl try to explain why he will lose

You would be homeless then. Rogers is not that great of a fighter...

He is Strikeforce's version of Carwin.

at least kongo had muay thai world championship creditials when you claimed he would easily outstrike Frank Mir.... now your saying some sloppy amateur boxer is going to.... because he is big?? He has no real boxing creditentials and isnt world class at anything, he is just big with alot of power, Mir would own him and it wouldnt even be close, ill take a bet for w/e amount of $ you have if this fight ever comes up. Even $?? sucker bet. Frank Mir was breaking limps, winning grappling and MMA titles and knocking fools out while this clown was still changing tires and prob had no idea what MMA was.
