FWP: Lesnar vs. Mir II

I'm jacked up for a lot of fights on this card, but honestly, this is the mother of all fights for me.


Rematches are almost always awesome and if things go the way that I hope, Frank Mir will be laying in a smashed up heap on the floor when the final bell sounds.

Brock Lesnar (3-1) vs. Frank Mir (12-3)

Let's get this out of the way right up front: Mir beat Lesnar the first time around and I will give him all the credit in the world for making the genetic freak tap. Furthermore, he followed that up by being the first guy to put Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira on his ass to earn half of the UFC Heavyweight title.

Now that that is over with, Lesnar is a human monster that possesses the strength to shatter orbital bones with one punch (see Herring, Heath) and the ability to take punches from one of the best ever (see Couture, Randy) without really flinching.

The battle here is clearly going to be Mir's ability to utilize his jiu jitsu against a bigger, stronger, faster opponent in Lesnar. Yes, he's done it before, but some would say Steve Mazzagatti and Lesnar's inexperience had something to do with it.

Standing and trading with Lesnar isn't really an option, in my opinion, just because he's massive, has shown he can take a punch and the whole shattered Heath Herring's orbital bone thing I mentioned before. Did I mention he's massive?

To me, Lesnar is the next evolution in Mixed Martial Arts, a heavyweight equivalent to Georges St-Pierre in terms of freakish athleticism. Remember when GSP was just the better athlete than everyone and got by on that and improving talents? That is Lesnar right now. Mark my words.


  1. Who won the game? I hope that I can watch such game soon.

  2. I love to watch these two people fighting.

  3. Anyhow, I don't actually watch a game such as this. But thanks for the update.

  4. I wonder if there is so much pain when two individuals are fighting. Anyhow, at least they are there to entertain people.

  5. Lesnar vs. Mir II had an amazing fight indeed. Hopefully, they will again face each other.


Tell us what you think - good, bad or indifferent - and get ready for a counterpunch.
