lol he's coming off as a real jerk know it all arrogant bastard. I really hope he gets knocked out cold but more than likely he gets the submission.

What's wrong with the Original post?

Regardless, he's not the better "boxer" but he has equal stand up, I'll agree with him there. Mir will take this fight.

I'd like to remind everyone that Kongo has never been submitted before. Also, he's submitted someone before and he's only had 2 split decisions and 1 UD losses in the UFC - the UD coming in a close fight that he did not have time to train for.



Coldcall: MIR IS AS GOOD OF A STRIKER AS KONGO? WHAT.

Is this because his jab-cross-uppercut (repeat, repeat, repeat) impressed you against an injured Nog?

Or I guess you're not impressed with Kongo's World Muay Thai championships?

Mir's always been a tool. Taking a shot at Kongos english speaking ability, that has nothing to do with anything. His bias commentating in the WEC is the absolute worst. Everytime I see him he's spewing trash.

Neither has Kimbo and Houston Alexander has only 2 sub losses on his record so his BJJ cant be that bad. lol

Point being, it doesn't mean Kongo's GG is good and won't be in major trouble if/when the fight goes to the mat.

Man I hate Mir so much I hope he gets Knocked out here but I doubt it. I dont think Mir is as good as Kongo standing but I dont think that will matter cause he is a lot better on the ground and should win the fight there or grind out a decision. If Kongo can get better TDD for this fight he has a good chance of winning. Velasquez took down Kongo pretty easily but his takedowns are very good and it might have made kongo look worse than he is.

Mir is the better all around MMA fighter, but he's not a better boxer than Kongo.
