Instead of making Big Nog his apprentice, Mir should have not fought in the UFC at all. That would have been a start. If he had gotten his ass kicked by Fedor in PRIDE, these same assholes couldn't wait to tell you all about his world-class submission game and how vicious and dangerous he was on the ground.

Mir gets tons of credit but he got stomped by Lesnar, Carwin, Freeman to name but a few and his best wins outside Big nog is who? Plus he comes across as a cunt a lot of the time and I was wishing him to **** up Lesnar and Carwin.

It would only be speculation for me to say he was definitely cheating in the past. It could be, with the acceptable TRT ratio of 4:1 he is taking advantage of this and is using TRT like others do to even the playing field

Which one is true is anyone's guess though

Sure but all we can do from this position is speculate.

I thought you could only get TRT if you had exceptionally low test levels.

Yes, so either he does have low levels either from a medical condition or from steroids abuse, or he's got a normal levels but has a Doctor write him a script so he can use TRT to boost his levels, if normal, from 1:1 to the legally accepted 4:1

So either he's got low levels from steroid abuse- FORMER CHEAT
or
He's got low levels from a medical condition that has just occured recently (I'm not a doctor but I've heard no mention of this before)
or
He's abusing a flawed system at the moment in order to get a test boost-CURRENT CHEAT

We should just make a list of all the PRIDE guys who were officially completely shot by the time they hit their 33rd birthdays and left PRIDE. We'll keep it just to the guys who were done by their early 30s to the extent that none of their losses after that point count against them or have any relevance to their careers at all.

Let's see.

Fedor
Big Nog
Cro Cop
Shogun
Wanderlei

Who else?

He would have done great in Pride. Because under the shady yakuza ran ,fixed fights ,PEDS infested organization he could have juiced out of his damn mind until he was Uber Mir,a Hulk like fighter with an iron beard,super human strength,insane stamina and a 15 inch forehead. Nobodys beating that guy. Nobody.
