This is what happens when all your losses are from (t)KO's at HW.

Frank Mir is a can with a good ground game, Barnett is a good all rounder.

I wouldn't say that anyone in the UFC is a can, really... but Barnett is more well rounded yes.


Fedor, Mir, Lytle, Serra, Hendo, Chuck, Minowaman, Maynard, Forrest, Hunt
Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler

If Frank didn't have a high level ground game then he'd be a can. Therefore against anybody that won't take him down or that he cannot take to the ground he is a can. He has a weak jaw, horrible striking and pathetic offensive wrestling.

Ignoring that Mir is speaking the truth and bashing him doesn't make Cormier have dangerous GNP or good submissions.

This is a forum...that's what people do. Frank usually speaks the truth and everyone thinks it then frank says it, immediate switch, Mir is a can and an asshole and wrong. He could say gsp is boring Diaz is a thug and BJ Penn is lazy and people would call foul.

Mir may be right, he doesn't have a top BJJ game. His GnP isn't that bad but nothing too strong.

Either way he is a lifetime wrestler who hasn't even been in the MMA game for 4 years yet. Who started MMA when he was like 28. He will get better each time out.

I don't see what the difference is that he doesn't finish on the ground...he can keep it standing vs. anyone in MMA and has shown good striking with solid power.

I love how he said something about not finishing Josh. As if Josh is easy to finish. As if he didn't hand Josh an absolute beating. As if Mir would have much of any chance of finishing Josh.

What exactly is he trying to say in reguard to their fight? DC isn't planning on being on the ground. If he can drop Bigfoot who has 6 inches, 50lbs, and 11 inches of reach on him...he can surly drop Frank Mir.

Mir gone get wrecked.

He doesn't react well to getting hit and his striking isn't great he is just fast and generally willing to throw. He is very impressive athletically for a guy who weighs so much but his best weapon doesn't have the threatening consequences that it should. He isn't going to be an elite heavyweight without the ability to do serious GNP or submit people.
