Another thing I'd like to point out. Say Mir does have more power, but JDS will combo your ass and his gnp is second to none. Mir's more of a 1,2 forward puncher. His striking has improved though, but it's not like JDS at all. JDS constantly moves around and finds angles and just creates opportunities.

KOed Werdum with an uppercut because he knew he always ducks his head in.

KOed Gilbert Yvel with a left hook.
KOed Gonazaga with a left hook.
KOed Cain with a right overhand bomb!
Should have TKOed Carwin...but he somehow survived.

These were all one shot with various technique and style of punching.

All of his fights even outside the UFC have been finishes with the exception of Nelson and Carwin. Regardless I will say JDS is the stronger puncher even though he's lighter.

I just think Mir's is boosting his own confidence which isn't necessarily bad. It's gonna be a fun fight to watch cuz I'm 95% sure JDS will win by KO. I think JDS will throw a straight right down the pipe.

God, I really feel sorry for Mir in this fight. I normally don't do this, but I don't think he stands a chance in hell against JDS in this fight standing. Also, I highly and I mean HIGHLY doubt he will be able to take JDS down.

JDS has never been taken down, and if all the other guys he's fought couldn't do it, a flabby Frank Mir will not be the one to do it.

That being said, this fight will probably remain standing, and a stiff jab followed by a crisp left hook, and a devastating over hand right will send Frank Mir into a broadcasting / color commentator's seat for life

So does that mean he plan to in stand and bang with JDS? If so, Mir is not going to survive the first round.

Get him to the ground. That is your best chance and JDS questionable area. (But again, it is a whole different thing to even take JDS down.

Uhhh, no.

That interview was from UFC 130 when he was fighting Roy Nelson. So no, I am sure that's not his plan. The reason he said that was because Roy lost a decision to JDS and took a lot of a punishment, so Mir mentioned he hits harder....meaning if he had hit Roy that many times the fight would have been stopped. AKA, hyping up his next and up coming fight with ROY back at UFC 130.

Big Nog has less power in his hands than JDS... He still rocked the Shit out of Mir. This fight ends with Frank on the floor dreaming, and I can't wait!

Dunno but I'd definately explode!! No wait...erm..I want Mir to win. I like intelligent fighters.

I dont think better technique always leads to a harder punch. Size has alot to do with it also. Cain Velasquez for example, Isn't he supposed tom have the most powerful punch in MMA? I'd also say Anderson doesn't have the strongest punches but he sure does have the best technique. On this basis I'd say strength and technique don't go hand in hand so Mir might not be too far off in his assumption. He may not be right, but I don't think hes delutional or anything.

Being larger than someone does not automatically mean you striking generates more force than them.
