    Star Lesnar Vs Mir 2: Analyizing Their Upcoming Bout at UFC 100.

    On July 11th, 2009, The UFC will hold UFC 100, where Brock Lesnar, and Frank Mir, will fight for the Undisputed UFC Heavyweight Championship. The two have met before at UFC 81: Breaking Point, with Frank Mir giving Lesnar his first career loss.



    Lesnar has good physical body, is fast, and strong, but has little experience with Mixed Martial Arts, having fought only four bouts, a loss to Mir, and three wins. His first win came in his MMA debut, against Min-Soo Kim. Lesnar then won his UFC debute, defeating Heath Herring, and then beat Randy "The Natural" Couture for the UFC Heavyweight Championship back in November. Lesnar is also a NCAA Division Champion.

    Mir, on the other hand, has experience, with 15 MMA fights, losing three of them. Mir went on a 4-0 streak when he first began MMA, by beating Jerome Smith, Dan Quinn, Roberto Traven, and Pete Williams. Mir then recived his first loss to Ian Freeman in his next fight. He then got four more wins, improving to 8-1, defeating Tank Abbott, Wes Sims twice, and then Tim Sylvia for UFC Heavyweight Championship.

    After returning to The UFC from an injury, Mir suffered a losses to Marcio Cruz, and Brandon Vera, with a victory over Dan Christison inbetween. Mir would then get three more wins by defeating Antoni Hardonk, Brock Lesnar, and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira for The UFC Intrem Heavweight Championship, improving to an overall record of 12-3.



    "I hold victories over former Interim Heavyweight Champion, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 92, and current UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar at UFC 81" says Mir, "it is enough to recognize me as the owner of the 'real belt.' "



    While Mir holds a win over Lesnar already, it doesn't promise an upcoming victory. Both Lesnar and Mir have Pro's and Con's, and I'm going to look at them now:

    Lesnar's Pro's:

    • Big
    • Fast
    • Strong
    • Great Mat Wrestler
    • Endurance
    • Former NCAA Champion
    • Height Advantage
    • Weight Advantage
    Lesnar's Con's:

    • Little Experience
    • Lost to Mir already
    (I can only think of two cons)

    Mir's Pro's:

    • Experience
    • Beaten Lesnar before
    • Good Submissions
    • Endurance
    • Speed
    Mir's Con's:

    • Height Disadvantage
    • Weight disadvantage
    • Power disadvantage
    (Only can think of three Con's)

    Will a more exprienced Lesnar be able to avenge his loss, or will Mir find lighting in a bottle, and go 2-0 against Lesnar to become UFC Undisputed Heavyweight Champion?



    Fell free to leave you thoughts, rate, and etc.



    Also catch UFC 100, live on Pay-Per-View, with a card featuring Lesnar vs Mir 2, for the UFC Undisputed Heavyweight Championship, as well as George St-Pierre vs Thiago Evans for the UFC Welterweight Championship, and Team US coach, Dan Henderson takes on Team UK coach Michael Bisping for a shot at the UFC Middleweight Championship. On a separate note, I think Bisping and Lesnar will win.

    remember too that after Mir won the first time, he said he was looking for a leg submission thinking Brock would be too strong to submit by arm bar and his neck too big to choke. I think Mir was very close to quitting himself.

    Unless Brock decides to make it a standup fight, I think it will be another 1 rounder but this time Brock wins.

    If Mir wins, I'll turn the TV off right after. He'll spend the entire interview praising himself and swagger the rest of the time.

    Add intelligence to Mir's list of strengths. He is a very smart fighter. Couple that with the experience of 15 bouts as well as 2 for the championship. and he will be very difficult to fool/surprise/outsmart.

    This is Brock Lesnar's fight to win. He has all the tools and he wins by virtue of simplifying things. The bigger stronger man needs only to avoid making obvious mistakes. I like the game plan of keeping it standing and then bludgeon the challenger on the ground in spurts. Mir has never shown a tremendous amount of resiliency. If you hurt him and stay on him, he caves, (all his defeats are by stoppage). He also has shown a lack of cardio and a deficiency in terms of true grit. The Simms fights may be the exception but come on, it was Wes Simms.

    Look for Brock to show us more of that powerful stand up and to punish Mir early and often.
    Lets go Brent!

    actually this is Brocks fight to lose, he has defeated legends such as Heath Herring and Randy Couture and as such is been pushed to the moon as the next big thing (for the second time) and there is heavy, heavy expectation that he will win, Im sure the lines will reflect Brock as a huge favorite, despite losing to Mir the first time. A fight in which many believe that Mir was lucky and Brock the victim of shady reffing. I am confident that this time there will be no shadyness and that Brock can totally redeem himself.

    Think Brock will take it to the ground? He'd hurt him in short time, but he'd be somewhat in danger.

    Seems like he can win this one standing, but if he doesn't stop Mir, the fight could get real boring with both guys being gased in the later rounds of a 5 rounder.

    Mir has improved, but I think he'll have to hurt Lesnar a little standing to win this one (if he gets on top, he can set up a submission).

    He should, but I do think Mir does look better than he used to.

    It's hard to judge his last fight because Nog seemed out of it from the start.

    Yea nog looked like a punching bag. I dont buy into mirs last performance at all.

    Nog has been knocked down almost everyone he has fought (herring, fedor, mir, sylvia, cro cop, sapp, barnett) mir was just able to finish him. Mirs stand up is average at best, and when he gets hurt he will crumble.
