sorry for the double post but Frank Mir 262?? crazy
At first I thought it was crazy, but wasn't he 257 @ UFC 57?
Well I mean it's still bad going up in weight like that.
I already was picking Christison in this fight. With the rumors of him being kicked out of LVCC and not training hard+an up in weight, Dan's chances are going up more in my book.
Is it safe to say we will never see Mir champion again or atleast for awhile?
Honestly? I don't think he'll ever be champ again. And I'm not bashing him, but besides the arm break on Sylvia he really didn't beat that many good guys.
Although I disagree with people saying he'll be the next Ricco and move up to 300lbs.
why did Ricco do that?? and rumor was that Mir got kicked out of his gym for not training dont now if its true though
He didn't choose to, it's more like he just physically and mentally let himself go after some tough defeats. (Sylvia, Nog, Rizzo)
At least I think that's once his downturn began. I don't remember the exact time for sure.
Ya i saw him in i think Titos corner and was like was that Ricco lol
