Is anyone out there a Frank Mir fan? Aside from being the best submission specialist in the heavyweight division, and I know because there have been intensive studies on the matter, the guy is F**king awesome.

    Ofcourse, I'm a Mir fan. He's a beast. Aside from being a fighter, he's a great commentator/analyst.

    When he retires, he should do one of those.

    I'm a Mir fan. Always except for one fight. Could not cheer for him at 52, cuz he was fighting a friend of mine.

    Yes he should. I don't want to see him just fade away from the sport.

    generally never lived up to expectations.. always thought his hands can finish a fight when really he should have been using his BJJ, when he used it, was lethal, tried the standup, was found out, think that tells the Mir story.

    I am a fan of his talent and his comments but not his personality . So Don't send any train ticket for me please but I respect his perseverance after his Motorcycle crash and getting rid of alcoholism and depression.

    Mir is my favorite fighter of all time.

    I will ALWAYS cheer for him, but that does not mean that I am blind and think he'll win all fights. Against Cormier, I worry. I think Cormier's style is the worst for Mir. I will be cheering for him and hope he finds a way to tap Cormier out.

    Cheer for him at 52? As in UFC 52?

    Wasn't that Liddell vs Couture/ Hughes vs Trigg... I'm 99% sure that was UFC 52, if so Mir didn't fight on that card.

  • I hate him a lot but I love hearing him talk about the sport, just can't stand when he talks about him self. I think he has a lot of mma knowledge but is cocky beyond belief, he always gives really good opinions on fighters and other subjects though

    Mir has a very good ground game and has a good chance of subbing DC if it goes to the gorund. Mir has good striking as well I.E Kongo and nog... He has great knees and judo. As long as he doesn't stand infront of DC and trade Mir has a very good chance

    seriously mirs takedowns suck, only way he got that sub on nog was because nog followed him to the mat, only way he subbed kongo was becuase he rocked kongo badly and dropped him to the mat. sure agaisnt lavar johnson he could get a takedown, but he would struggle to get ben rothwell to the mat and has 0 chance of getting cormier to the mat

    mir striking is overated, he got beat up badly by carwin and didnt land much, second fight with big nog he got destroyed on the feet.

    1)he got caught in the 2nd nog fight... Name me one HW fighter who hasn't gotten clipped

    2)Shane was destroying everyone back then and most in the first round plus Mir ate some big shots and still stayed in there

    He also took Roy down easy which isn't an easy thing to do. Mir has very good clinch+knees and great throws as well
