Well the guys only had like two fights in the last year or so, cant really fault him for that.
Talking about his standup though. Mir has shown time and time again that he is no joke.
Rocking and dropping Kongo, which to my knowledge
has only been done three times is not easy. Against guys like Pat Barry, Mark Hunt and then Frank Mir. Two of the heaviest hitters in the game, and then Frank have dropped a great kickboxer.
Destroying Nog, something that only Mir and the current champ of the UFC have done. Again takes more than amazing speed and power
, it takes mad skill.
He was the 2nd man in the UFC to KO
Cro cop, and he did it 3 years after GG did, with CC having great success in between those fights. Everyone always thinks it was GG that stole CCs soul.. I think it was Mir. After GG he went 5-2, After Mir he went on a 3 fight skid for the first time in his carreer.
What im trying to say is Mir has been making/breaking standup-type records for a while now, against great standup fighters. IMO
his standup is no joke.
God hates me, never keep my banger on safety
My mother raised me alone, you can't break me
Like my hearts pumpin the blood of Royce Gracie! 13-4-1 in sig/av
