Frank Mir | Criticisms from JDS is a Way to Garner Confidence

Frank Mir put the stamp on the win against Antonio Nogueira with a brutal arm bar submission at UFC  140 .  That was a big upset since Nogueira has never been knocked out before in his entire career before Mir fought him the first time and let alone been submitted before in his entire career.   These facts and Heavyweight Champion Junior Dos Santos’  observation of  Mir’s track record….

“When Mir gets in trouble, he folds”

is a way for JDS to garner confidence.  Mir tells MMA Weekly Radio….

“I think maybe that’s just an assessment, and maybe it also draws confidence on his part.   You’ve got to realize, the guy just watched me break his coach’s arm after he thought he had me out.”

“That’s kind of a scary proposition for him because in his mind….  it’s ‘okay, so if I hit him and knock him down, can I jump and grab this guy?’

Nogueira, who has been doing (jiu-jitsu) longer than him and more proficient at it had him out and went to slap on a choke, and he still reversed my coach and swept him and got on top, and put him into a surgical room shortly after.   Sometimes, I think you say things to also garner confidence.”

The actions at UFC 146 in the MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 26 will settle the Heavyweight Title brawl once again.

    Yeah just lazy journalism I’m afraid. Fancy JDS in this one big time, thankfully I get the fight free so it will be nice to see Mir sleeping without lining his pocket when he wakes up. Happy days.

  4. danielrchargers says:

    Guarantee you this fools just Stoned as shit typing this stuff up.
    BUUUUUUT getting to Mir’s comments. This fight is gonna be sick.

    • Get rid of Fitch (forever) says:

      Mir won’t last 2 minutes with JDS. Mir can’t beat carwin or Cain let alone JDS. Mir is simply a fill in and not the TRUE #1 contender.

  5. Pressao says:

    JDS statement holds little validity based upon Mir’s last outing where not only was he in trouble after the punch but also the guillotine! What happened next! Mir is dangerous until he is out cold! If u ignore this you may leave the octagon with a partiially functional limb!

  6. danielrchargers says:

    Mir is gonna go Palhares on JDS. crazy shit if that actually happend tho, Franks got more sense than TREE STUMP BITCH. Mir for the win.

    • BengalTiger says:

      If they stay standing, then MIR will get knocked out. If it goes to the ground, he’ll get submitted. Either way, Frank Mir is no where close to being the same caliber fighters as JDS!

      • Shane Demolitor says:

        Are you nuts? Nowhere near? Mir is a 2 time UFC heavyweight champion and has fought every noteworthy opponent in the division for the last 10 years. JDS is a great fighter no doubt but he has not been in the ring with a fighter of Mir’s caliber and that includes Cain. Junior’s a one dimensional fighter and this aint boxing, it’s MMA. JDS is in trouble!

        • Chris says:

          You cannot honestly call JDS one dimensional when he has that kind of takedown defense. He may use his skills to keep the fight one dimensional, but he is not just a pure boxer.

      • ThaGreenBandit says:

        Your statements are starting to sound a little outlandish now, bruh.. Don’t make it seem like Mir is some slouch that is lucky to be fighting for the belt. He is a former champ, you know…

      • Brend0magic says:

        Bengaltiger, if you think JDS can beat Mir on the ground, you are out of your fucking mind. Or too much in love with Junior.

  7. Jlopez says:

    The Kimora is commonly referred to as a bent arm bar too. S

  8. danieljonesfan says:

    Bent armbar, never heard of that before. Arm lock but it’s not a bar as such as a bar is straight. No bjj black belt here just lay logic.

  9. BengalTiger says:

    This isn’t even a matchup for JDS, as he will inevitably kick the royal shit out of Mir!

  10. Ryan kelly says:

    I think first few punches hes going she she night night that chin is horribly questionable but we will just have to c i guess

  11. Ryan kelly says:

    All i can say is shane carwin …….. Knocked him the foooooook out and jds pumbled the living sog shit out of shane cardio

  12. Xaninho says:

    JDS won’t jump after him once Mir get’s rocked. He’ll have him stand-up, will finish it off on the feet and send Mir face-down towards the canvas.

  13. chris says:

    mir will have to get him down or its night night mir but personally dont underestimate mir and count him out otherwise youll cry when mir snapss him on the ground

  14. Yoda says:

    Stupid you are… Mir is not to be under estimated he is. Sneaky he will be, JDS will sleep you will see. Jimmy Two Saints gonna get caught slipping.

  15. Coco says:

    War Mir!

    Fuck JDS the only good fighter he Ever fought is Cain!

    Sleep JDS sleeeeeeeep
