pete williams is only famous for the kick to colemans head which was because coleman was totally gassed. and that win was in 1998. he had a little under 2 years and he said he was ready to go. he wouldnt have taken the pe de pano fight if he didnt think he wasnt. the point is monson has beaten better fighters then mir. mir fought during the dead zone of the ufc hw division and was their champ thats about it.
