Frank Mir out, Stephan Bonnar in for WEC 47 color commentary

Quote:

With less than a month to go before his colossal showdown with fellow heavyweight contender Shane Carwin at UFC 111 in Newark, former division champion Frank Mir will temporarily step down from his role as WEC color commentator to concentrate on one of the biggest fights of his life.

Replacing him for the WEC 47: "Bowles vs. Cruz" event from the Nationwide Arena in Columbus is another familiar voice and "colorful" personality, Stephan Bonnar.
"The American Psycho" is no stranger to the cageside announcer's table. He earned praise for his commentary during the UFC 59: "Reality Check" main event when friend (and sometimes foe) Forrest Griffin took on Tito Ortiz.
Mir is expected to resume his WEC commentating duties after the UFC 111 event on March 27.
WEC 47 will take place in Columbus, Ohio and features a bantamweight title bout in which Brian Bowles makes his first title defense against Dominick Cruz. In addition, a showdown between former 135-pound champion Miguel Torres and top contender Joseph Benavidez is featured in the co-main event.
Think this has anything to do with the comments Frank made about Brock???



EDIT: I'd do either chick on the right or left, or both....

Or its a career move for Bonnar.

The one to Bonnars right was in some Baywatch spoof of a TV show..........


cant remember the name of the show, but Howard stern had something to do with it..................

Both of them would get done.








Mir must be really pissed to miss a Torres fight. I guess Torres is gonna have an easy time making weight without Frank hanging from his nuts...........

Congratulations you won!

The one in the red top looks like the agent/producer from Entourage

It is no secret that Torres is Mir's favorite fighter. I am interested to see how Bonnar does.

I don't think this has anything to do with Mir's comments. They've replaced him before when he had a big fight coming up.

Anyway, I'm interested in Bonnar's commentary. Kenny Florian does a good job, but he's probably busy training for Gomi.
