Do the people that keep using Kongo's muay thay championship to state that he is a better boxer then Mir realize that muay thay and boxing are two very different styles? I think Mir has better combinations and footwork then Kongo when it comes to boxing. Kongo has great muay thay, but he is no boxer by any stretch of the imagination. He would rather throw kicks and knees then punches most of the time, his head movement is not very good and he generally tries to win his fights by clinching and throwing knees and elbows. He does have some very heavy hands, but I think Mir would do much better in a pure boxing match then Kongo would.

Mir probably is a better boxer than Kongo. He looked sharp against Nog.

This isn't a boxing however; it's mma.

But this argument is about Kongo being the better striker...? It's pretty clear when one fighter outstrikes the other, we have fight metric and public poll to dispute that. Scared that Mir's going to get outstruck?

I'll take that bet though if you won't take mine. 30 days, I got Kongo you got Mir. But if Kongo KO's Mir clean, you leave yours for 60 days, if Mir KO's Kongo (he's the better striker so it's likely? ) then I'll leave mine for 60 days?

I dont think Mir would get an 'instant sub' but if it goes to the ground Cheick's in trouble, whether he be on top or on the bottom.

You seem to be the only person here to argue over that tbh.
The general opinion is that Kongo is some kind of HW Guillard which he in no way is.

Agreed with this just saying not because he hasnt been subbed in his career thus far, that he can hang on the ground with Frank Mir.

He hasnt faced anyone as good as him on the ground..

I hope to be proven wrong though as Im rooting for Cheick (in case you havent noticed) lol

Maybe he's just saying it to keep Kongo thinking that it will be a stand up battle and not work so hard on his complete lack of ground game.

Either that or Mir is gonna get KOed.

Im pretty sure this is all an act, an attempt to sway Kongo's mindset and gameplan into thinking Mir is looking to exchange.

Mir has been know to say all kinds of things beore matches, hinting at injuries etc hopeing people take him lightly.


This is what I think he is doing, personally I hope he gets knocked out

DKent has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Mir seems to be turning into a real arrogant jerk and thats AFTER he just got his butt kicked which is surprising. Most guys are humble after that type of thrashing. Either way he should beat Kongo, but I want to see him against Cain I think Cains style would cause him similar problems that Brocks did even with thew size difference.
