Overall i ask...who needs this win more...Mir because this will probably stop his comeback completely or will Lesnar need this win cuz a lose might hurt his confidence and his presence in the UFC.
Frank Mir needs the win way more than lesnar.
Frank loses=He is officially a "has Been" and the accident and broken leg basically ended his career.
Frank wins=Frank beat a household name that is world renound. Will do wonders to Mirs confidence.
Lesnar Wins= He is almost expected to do well against Mir Because both basically have weak standup and both can wrestle.(brock's world wrestling/Mir's world BJJ) If brock wins+ everybody would say..."well ya...he's a world class wrestler"
Lesnar Loses=simply put.."He wasn't ready for a very experienced fighter and ex champ" "Give brock a year or two and look out!
Frank Mir NEEDS this win like the oxygen in his lungs!! Lesnar can loose and still actually become way better in the future!
