I think Mir was overwhelmed by Lesnar in the first fight. He wasnt sure what hed be fighting now he has a decent idea.
Yes, he was overwhelmed, and frankly (no pun intended) I think he’ll be overwhelmed again. He is absolutely no match for Lesnar physically, he will be fighting a more experienced and better Lesnar than the one he fought in that fight, and he won’t be bailed out with a bullshit stand-up and point deduction against Lesnar when he is being pounded on this time around.
Mir does have a ko of wes sims and a couple of tkos so he has power. Itll be interesting i think th person that controls the ground game wins. Wrestling vs bjj
Did you watch that fight with Wes Sims? I did, and both Mir and Wes looked horrible. It was actually pretty sad how long it took Frank to KO him and anyone with any substantial power would have done so much, much sooner in that fight.
If you are giving Mir the advantage due to his win in that fight, I think you really need to go back and watch that fight again.
As far as the “person who controls the ground wins” theory, yeah I’ll agree with that. But I’m gonna say that the bigger, stronger, superior wrestler is going to be victorious in that department (really don’t know how anyone can argue that with what we’ve seen from other such match-ups, i.e. GSP vs Penn 2 anyone?).
I was just trying to say he has some power. This is a litlle different than penn gsp thoughgsp is a bjj black belt a jj black belt has learned some judo and is the best wrestler in the ufc. I dont think Lesnar has the same pedigree. [/quote]
No, Lesnar is certainly not a bjj black belt, but he is a 2x Div. 1 National champion wrestler. Mir also isn’t a former world champion in BJJ like Penn. So, it’s not like either fighter is on the same skill level as GSP or Penn.
But the comparison is still a valid one. You have a much bigger, stronger, more athletic wrestler vs. a smaller, more experienced BJJ fighter. I really don’t see the BJJ guy dominating the ground game in this one, that’s all I was saying with that comparison.
