Really, if you don't think you can beat everyone in your division then what are you doing in the sport?

Sure, Mir is a bit of a knob, but he is doing what a fighter should do...try and get the best fights possible. It wouldn't give Mir much street cred if he called out Ben 'I Block With My Face' Rothwell, now would it.
Yeah, I agree, its self promotion. As much as a douchebag Mir is, what would happend if Mir said:

"Fedor would take 1 minute to KTFO of me. I beat an inexperienced brock. I didn't beat nog, staf beat nog."

He'd be honest but I'd question his fighting spirit more if he didn't say he could be fedor.

Mir got paid by the UFC to say that. I might get neg repped for saying this but he's officially a sellout when it comes to repeating what the UFC wants guys to say.

In the past Mir always said Fedor was the # 1 fighter and best HW in the world. Now he's singing the same old tune Dana has been singing for years.

I still like Mir but have to say I lost a little respect for him.

I doubt you'll be bothered to check, but I supported what you're saying in the fight thread. The difference in that fight was Mir being exceptionally on form, but Nog still didn't look like the Nog we know. I'd bet my own money Nog would win a rematch if he was fully fit.

Either way, Mir still only has 2 decent fighters that he's beaten, so he looks like a bit of an idiot calling Fedor out like that.

LMAO Rogers would own Mir. And so would Fedor. Rogers would KO a lot of UFC hw's I think. I really wish Dana would sign Rogers, not because I'm a fan or anything, but just to show that the man that Fedor beat, hits harder than any current UFC HW on roster including Carwin.

Ugh... Mir only knows how to talk.

Fedor has beaten far better fighters than Mir has even faced.

Can you imagine Mir vs in his prime Cro Cop? That fight would not last 30 seconds, Mir would be bloodied up and on his head like vs BRENDON VERA. That's right, everyone please go watch Mir get TOY'd by Vera LOL.

This guy is a fukn dolt I really don't like him.

I can't stand the guy, but what he says about Fedor is the truest shit anybody has ever said. The REAL competition is in the UFC. Right now, Fedor is fighting minor leaguers (at best).

I can't stand the douchebag either, but when he fought Vera, he was just getting back into the UFC from like 2 years of not doing anything cuz of his car wreck. So that can't really be used as an example of Mir's ability. Vera would get tapped out with the quickness now, and the same goes for Cro Cop in his prime against Mir in his prime.

You guys are being too hard on Frank. Yes, hes a smug knob, but I love it. When he talks about his abilities its like listening to Mir on Mir porn. Gross... and very funny. If you take this shit seriously you have a problem.

I say embrace the Mir. Love to hate him. I do.

I wouldn't say he is 'calling him out' just acknowledging that Fedor's legend would be undeniable if he was to fight for the biggest MMA promotion in the world and rule the HW division there.

Anyways, I agree with Toxic regarding the Mir/Nog fight. Seems like every fighter who's a bit unpopular the fans will find something, anything to take away from their wins. It's not fair to say, 'oh well Nog had staph' because Mir was at his absolute best during that fight physically and mentally. I'd still bet on Mir taking the inevitable rematch, actually.
