    Default Frank Mir: "Fedor Wants No Part Of Facing Real Competition"

    http://www.cagereport.net/Frank-Mir-...mpetition.html

    Whilst Kongo is renowned for his striking abilities, Mir is confident that he could contend with the hard hitting French striker on the feet and views this as a great opportunity to showcase some striking abilities of his own.

    "I mean I wasn't supposed to beat Nogueira standing and look what happened there. I'm confident that I can strike with Cheick [Kongo] and make it competitive, my punches are a lot quicker than his, plus I know how to work angles better, trust me I know how to shut guys off. The thing is if I were to go out there and submit him in less than a minute It would prove nothing, a true martial artists would want to challenge himself and the challenge presented in front of me right now is to out-strike someone who on paper is the better striker."

    When asked if he would re-sign with the UFC once the remainder of his current contract expires, Mir revealed no intentions of signing elsewhere.

    "Not really, the UFC have been good to me over the years, I don't see any reason for me to leave or go elsewhere. I want that rematch with Brock before I even think that far down the line."

    Mir has been known to be critical of Fedor Emelianenko in the past, the man who many regard as the number one heavyweight in MMA, Mir however tends to disagree with this notion.

    "No disrespect to Rogers but other than Arlovski he hasn't really beaten anyone noteworthy. I don't see how beating a guy like that solidifies Fedor as being number one pound for pound. I would still rank guys like Anderson [Silva], Miguel Torres and St Pierre above Fedor as far as pound for pound rankings go. Do I think I could beat Fedor? of course, but now I'll never get the opportunity to prove it since [Fedor's] made it clear that he wants no part of facing real competition."

    Still people talking???? Mir couldn't beat Rogers.
    Again for the millionth time-Fedor has beat Tim Silva, A.A., Bret Rogers, Nog-twice-when he was at his best, CroCop-at his best, and everyone else that has ben put in front of him.
    Does Mir get bonus money from Dana to bash Fedor or is he really just thinking these things?
    If he tries to just stand with kongo, he will lose. Everyone knows that he could submit him, Kongo sucks on the ground, but why risk losing a fight. He got KOed by Vera and Kongo is more likely a harder hitter. He rocked Cain three times in their fight.

    Mir should sign a one fight deal with Strikeforce just to give Fedor some "real competition".

    Why do Fedor any favors and allow him to stay out of the big leagues? If high profile free agents go to Fedor before they are completing shot, (Sylvis, Arlovski, Lindland, Barnet) there will be no need for him to go to the UFC and prove that he is the best.
    Lets go Brent!

    I've seen worse comments; saying he's not the best PFP isn't so bad.

    Mir would be dumb to try and prove his standup against Kongo.

    I'm pretty sure Fedor would hold his own with Ian Freeman, Pe de Pano and Brandon Vera. Typical Mir doucheverbiage.
