mir is a very good fighter and an expert at certain things, but too often he fails to impress. he basically did one thing right in the big nog fight, and that was to seize the gift-wrapped opportunity to find a superior position on the ground. he certainly didn't impress on his feet and breaking nog's arm is something any good HW can do if the opponent refuses to tap.
i'd rather see barnett, possibly cormier, werdum (if he promised to fight like a man) ahead of the line in front of mir.
u all are just mir haters....that fight was so brief and all Nog did was get 1 flurry in with a good connect which can happen to anybody, and its like all of u are trying to take away from Mir subbing him because so many of u play favorites
werdum is WAY worse than mir, that fool just falls down on purpose and won't even try to standup....if anything Mir gets a bad rap for being so physically outmatched vs Lesnar. thats the only fight where he looked bush league, otherwise Mir is just as good as any of the names u mentioned. people hate on him so much too acting like Mir is some ahole which isn't even true either. Mir is a beast as long as he's not fighting people way bigger than he is
