I've seen a few things now on him breaking down the fight... you can tell this still haunts his dreams.

Frank's an intelligent guy, coaching and commentating will both be good options for him when he's done fighting.

I'd love to see Frank as a color commentator again someday. He did a wonderful job in WEC, breaking down fights and being a helluva lot less biased than Rogan.

What could you expect, all of his bias was concentrated on Miguel Torres.

Joe Rogan spreads his manlove around.

hah, yeah... that was true.

but rather that than be all shocked and claiming someone's hurt from a grazing punch, when they're clearly not.

btw, I like Joe Rogan. I like Mir better.

Yeah I forgot about Mir's stint as commentator in WEC, he was pretty good. I would at least like to see him return for non numbered events.

Real reason he couldn't get back to his feet though was because he got smacked in the face two dozen times from 265 pounds of pure Hulk.

IDK why Mir gets so much hate. He strikes me an pretty intelligent smart guy. I've been a fan since before his motorcycle accident.

I'm a fan of his too... but even I can tell he's pretty high on himself. That's probably why.

Pretty interesting how a lot of these guys are adversely affected from some of the formal limitations of their background.

Mir with keeping the half-guard here instead of of freeing himself because of sport-jiu jitsu scoring, and I remember a Jack Slack article about how Machida keeps his guard arm down from Karate because points don't count unless its at your waist.

Beware of fighting for points!
