*FlashBack* "Frank Mir" - Im alot taller and hit alot harder then JDS.
“I’m a lot bigger than (Junior) Dos Santos and I hit a lot harder. I’m a taller, longer athlete … quicker; I’ll constantly pepper him with shots when he comes in and make him pay when I do hit him with something. When I hit Cheick Kongo, the punch alone threw him halfway across the Octagon. On the night of the fight, neither one of us are going to pull any punches. If I catch him with something, I’ll try to hurt him with it.”
Anyone else get a chuckle out of that??? I certainly do not believe Frank Mir punches harder then JDS. I also didnt know he was taller or longer. I always felt JDS was the taller guy with the longer reach. Anyone have the stats for this?
Self confidence booster. Anything it takes to hype himself up I guess...lolz!
Lets try a test who hits harder. Frank...you of all people should know...in sports...any sports...it's all about technique. With technique, comes speed, with speed comes power. Think Mirko's LHK, Tyson's hooks, Anderson's lightening fast strikes, Hunt's backwards left hook counter against Kongo, Kongo's punch against Barry against the fence, Rich's off hand counter against Chuck (maybe not such a good example, but it's still his off hand,) Barboza's heel kick vs Etim, any of Gustaf's strikes, JDS' bomb against Cain, and probably one of the better examples Jose Aldo. Small dude who can wreck shop.
Oh...this is going to be a good one to watch.

JDS is not a mega power puncher, he is however incredible accurate, his hands are fast, and he finds great holes to drop shots into. Mir might be stronger and hit harder, but no way can he throw hands with JDS, he'll die.
To use some MMATH... Mir got KTFO by Carwin, who got mauled by JDS...
So really... For the safety of Mir's career, I really hope he doesn't try to stand with JDS.
Yea because MMA math always works out like that. Do I even need to list some of the biggest MMA math fails?
I definitely don't have Mir as a favorite, but hes got a lot more experience, and has shown he can handle adversity.
I'm iffy when it comes to his chin, it seems to have been exposed a few times, but all the heavyweights hit hard. Mir showed in his last fight he can be on the brink of being KTFO and still snap an arm like a twig against somebody bigger than JDS. If he gets a hold of a limb it could be over for JDS.
