Frank Mir believes Fedor is too small to fight the bigger heavyweights
Former UFC heavyweight champion, Frank Mir has once again been giving his opinion on WAMMA champion, Fedor Emelianenko, telling a packed Q & A session that he believes the Russian is simply too small to compete with the bigger men at the top of the tree.
On Saturday at the WEC 46 open Q & A session Mir said Brett Rogers was not a top ten fighter but gave Fedor all sorts of problems during their fight late last year. Mir also described Fedor as “5-11, 235 with a belly” and thought he could drop down to light heavyweight. He did however rank Fedor among the divisions elite alongside Brock Lesnar, Rodrigo Nogueira, Junior dos Santos, Cain Velasquez, Shane Carwin and of course, himself.
Mir also commented on a potential rematch with Brazilian legend, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, saying if the pair were to meet again the fight would go along the same lines as their first meeting. Mir ended by stating he felt he was the best fighter in the weight class and that if you didn’t believe in yourself as a fighter you had no place inside the octagon.
