Let's see.

Fedor
Big Nog
Cro Cop
Shogun
Wanderlei

Who else?

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.
I would be afraid of Mir's health, many more top level strikers there who switch back and forth between K1 and MMA. Mir would get his head knocked off by Semmy and would most likely even loose against HMC.

Mir's lack of cardio would be another issue, he cant just LnP his opponents either and soccer kicks and knees would be the death of him.

Fedor and Shogun are not shot.

The other three are tho.

Wand has been fighting since 96'. And has been fighting the same way since. Which is him turning every fight into a crazed war.

Big Nog's catch **** with his face style has obviously worn him down.

And Mirko had fought 23 K-1 bouts by 2003. Along with also having 45 amature boxing bouts.

He had alot of fights before comming to the UFC.

That and I think Mirko lost alot of motivation after winning the GP.

He thought he would just walk into the UFC and dominate.

Dude wouldn't even train in a cage at first.

What a ****ing circle jerk these pride huggers are. Mir would have done okay. He wouldn't have ever held the title like he did back in the day in the UFC, but he'd have had some good wins. He's a big skilled guy with some athleticism and if you put him on roids he'd look even a little better. He'd have done fine.

You're also up against a cage and have limited movement, genius.

There's a reason why it's illegal in the UFC.

Seems like you forgot... take from this what you will.

Anyone who is on the ground with Mir is in danger of losing the fight. Anyone. Doesn't mean they WILL lose, but if they make a mistake he can brutally submit them in 2 seconds.

Don't get me wrong, I'm firmly in the 'Mir doesn't get enough credit/respect' crowd, but his style isn't exactly great for the Pride rule set.
