Frank Mir Talks Cheick Kongo, Brock Lesnar, Fedor Emelianenko Ducking The UFC's Top Heavyweights

New, 13 comments

-Thinks he has better standup than Cheick Kongo

-Frank Mir thinks he needs two wins to get another shot at Brock Lesnar. 

-He thinks Carwin can match Lesnar's size

-Velasquez's cardio and standup could be a factor if he were to fight Lesnar. 

-He doesn't think Lesnar could take Velasquez down at will.

-He thinks Lesnar would beat Fedor in a cage....Fedor would have a small chance of beating Lesnar in a ring.

-I think it's an excuse to dodge the top-level competition.  As long as he never proves it, he can keep the No. 1 ranking. If he goes into the cage and loses, he loses that. If he stays out of the cage and doesn't fight myself, Lesnar, Cain Velasquez, Shane Carwin and some of the top heavyweights, he can always have an argument.

That was Frank Mir speaking on the fighters mentioned above...thoughts?  Would you want to see Lesnar/Mir 3?
