Everyone is different bro.

thanks, fellas. i chose the sims2 and hardonk fights because i'm sure i haven't seen them before. here's my takes:

sims- mir takes his superior balance, strength and low center of gravity and throws (floors) the dude repeatedly. once there, maybe he didn't have the best G&P, but it took it's toll. then, on the feet... oh yes... those knee strikes and that last vicious shot to the head, bam. haven't seen a head snap back that far in a while. nice finish too, for a guy who had illegally stomped on mir's face their previous fight. and seems to talk a bunch of smack in general.

hardonk- great takedown, great armlock, including not letting the guy roll away from the hold. not much else to say.


thoughts:

- both of those guys are basically just average HW's. kongo, nog, and nelson are basically gatekeepers now and gatekeepers when he fought them. sylvia, meh... not the most impressive fighter i've seen. so, yea... he may have mostly looked good against these guys, but isn't that what he's supposed to do at his level?

- i still don't think i've ever seen mir impress on the feet (in the sims fight the guy was already half-out). he just doesn't seem to have that explosiveness... the power and the arm speed. he's a wizard on the ground, obviously, but how is he ever going to get past the top strikers... strikers who are hard to take down?

- also, he seems to gas pretty often. i remember that from several of his previous fights, but even in the quick hardonk fight he had trouble finding breath afterward for his interview with joe.


conclusion: mir is somewhat more interesting to watch than i remember, but the reality is still this- he pretty much maxes at around sixth-best in the world in today's MMA. and yes, he's definitely an education on the ground, but i'd still rather watch the fighters i mentioned previously in terms of title-shots or eliminators. if mir could work on his cardio and striking i could see myself and audiences changing our minds. but he's 32 and the clock's ticking, you know?

Thanks, that's a compliment coming from you since you might just be the absolute dumbest and most clueless person on this site.

Learn how to read, but that's probably asking too much. I said I wouldn't take away Mir's first win over Nog. Another fail by Fuckupzuki...

I was never a Fedor supporter. How many times do I have to explain this to you? Oh, this is your go-to move because you don't have anything to actually say of value. At that point, he was the greatest fighter of all-time, but he fell out of that category, but anyone with a clue would already know that.

Uh huh, 1 bad fight only applies to someone like Werdum, but not Mir. Let me quote an idiot:

"werdum is WAY worse than mir, that fool just falls down on purpose and won't even try to standup"

Quote:

Where did I say Mir sucks so much? Oh, another one of your go-to moves, completely make shit up... Go back to the kiddie table and let the adults discuss things.

the IF card applies to every fight u moron especially in mma and u apply it with such a double standard its amazing u can't see how homer retard u are.

OK, you're throwing out all these words, but let's see if you can back this up. Go ahead. Let's see what those 2 brain cells of yours can muster (wait, did those die when you od'd on weed?)

Quote:
i swear i feel like i'm arguing with some kobe fan that thinks he's made every clutch shot and never missed with how ridiculously bias u always are like some typical Sherdog retard. he caught Mir, it went to the groound, he tried to sub Mir, Mir went for his leg, then switched to kimora i believe and won it. no matter what double standard excuse u want to make for ure boy Nog he LOST. its just such a joke how if that was Nog that won like that u would act like he completely wrecked Mir....bet. its so typical u....

Damn, you're far too stupid to argue with. Have fun jacking off to whatever stupid thoughts you can muster in that tiny brain of yours...

Well, he is a complete moron, so that's about as good as you're going to get from him.
