Seems like everybody forgot how Mir would handle the stomps/soccer kicks

Basically in the UFC this was a DQ win, but in PRIDE Mir would be stomped out by Wes Sims. Take from that what you will.
Came in here to post this.

Franks style would be horrible for PRIDE.

I am tired of people whinning about his stoppage wins over Nogeiura x2 and Cro Cop.


How would Mir do vs Josh Barnett? Vs Sergei Kharitonov
? Overeem when he sucked in Pride pre steroid addict? Werdum? Fedor?

How would Mir rank in Pride?
Reem was a light heavy in pride .
But in a nutshell mir would win. Plenty of fights but lose to the likes of fedor and Cro cop in devastating fashion .

How would you guys see a fight between 2012 Werdum and prime Big Nog going?

Off topic, yes, but **** it.

Werdum was not nearly as well rounded as he is now when they first fought, and he really didn't do too bad outside of getting dropped a couple of times. Obviously getting dropped multiple times is bad, but he was never in any serious danger. I think I would favor Werdum.

Realistically, Franks submission game is going to be top shelf in PRIDE, if he can get the fight to a position where he can implement it. There's plenty of guys who he would submit within a couple of minutes.

And who knows what the roids would do to help him. Mir strikes me as the kind of guy who, if he could get away with it, would be doped up to the ****ing eyeballs.

Acctually medical testing shows that Frank is the opposite of a 'roid' user. Mir suffers from the medical condition know as low T. Frank has low testosterone levels rather then extremely high levels that would indicate steroid usage.

Oh I don't think he's on them. Don't get me wrong. He seems to me like the kind of guy who is smart enough that he knows he's a valued, high-profile employee who has much more to lose by doping than to gain.

But if it was spelled out in his contract that he could roid himself as much as he wanted, we might see a different Frank Mir.

'How would of Frank Mir done in Pride?'

'Ali vs Tyson?'

Some day computers will be powerful enough to render verdict on these two unsolved mysteries.

Yup. Not only that its a positive indicator of LONG term abuse. If you had a condition of low test for a FACT you wouldn't be able to compete in any sport much less even life a normal day to day life.
