Exactly. Take a couple of decent uppercuts against an undead version of Nog and a single elbow against Lesnar right before he pepperonis your face. Remove them from your CV and what you got left in the striking department Mir, you smug cock? Nuffin, that's what. I'm sure your punch bag agrees with you though.

Soon as I can, I'm putting all me credits on Kongo.

all just hype, Mir is good at that. As he said on MMA connected, he watched the Cain-Kongo fight and knows Kongo is a turtle on his back. He said he is too lazy to beat on Kongo for 3 rounds like Cain did, he will just rip his leg off and put it home on the mantle place with the rest of them (seriously.... that's exactly how he said it).

Could Mir take those flush shots Cain did?? Will he have to??

I love the Nog excuses... im sure doctors clear guys on death beds all the time, if so?? maybe this sport is barbaric.

Speaking to CageReport.net, Mir said:

I mean I wasn't supposed to beat Nogueira standing and look what happened there. I'm confident that I can strike with Cheick [Kongo] and make it competitive, my punches are a lot quicker than his, plus I know how to work angles better, trust me I know how to shut guys off. The thing is if I were to go out there and submit him in less than a minute It would prove nothing, a true martial artists would want to challenge himself and the challenge presented in front of me right now is to out-strike someone who on paper is the better striker.

The pair will square off in the co-main event of the evening and find themselves as two of the few heavyweights currently fit enough to compete. Will Mir be able stop a man whos only losses inside the octagon have come by way of decision or will Kongo take the next step up in his career and beat someone considered to be in the top five in the world.
And that is why you fail.

Lol I really wanted to say that. Hopefully it is mind games, but I really doubt that Kongo gives in to any mind games, seeing he doesn't really make game plans either, so it's useless blah blah. Or maybe Mir is trying to be like Fedor and beat people at their own game lol

No way was that zombie we saw against Mir the same guy that fought Couture. No way. I appreciate your point regards doctors, but they cant and don't measure a fighters energy levels and sharpness. How can they? A tired and sluggish Nog would make it through a medical.

that's fine, no fighter is 100%, all kinds prob had problems you never heard about. If you are medically cleared to fight YOU ARE NOT on your deathbed as some Nog fans make it seem to be, he wasnt at 3% or something ridiculous like what was posted here. Mir KO'd him, credit to mir he looked great.

Of course he's not on his death bead... or a zombie or a corpse. But god damn, zombie is a more entertaining description than "not 100%" isn't it? Internet theatrics darling. Gotta love it.

I love Mir, but he or his camp have been doing dumb things recently. He wanted to fight Brock on the ground, and now wants to fight Kongo standing up. Everything is upside down with him - grass is blue, sky is green.

Not really.

Lesnar TDd him. He wanted to beat him standing actually and expected Brock to stand with him.

He said something like "I thought he was gonna stand with me" post-fight.

It's probably because he needs it for an excuse as a bad gameplan, instead of saying that he just wasn't good enough
