“I guess they say it because I’m so self-confident. Sometimes I think people rather see a fighter saying ‘oh Jesus, I’m so glad, I can’t believe I won, I’ve never been that good, I’m not that good.’ I’ve never had that kinda thought, especially because I was always so focused in getting into the Octagon to compete. I fought many guys who think like that and due to my self-confidence, I get on their nerves. But those who are arrogant can’t understand themselves, they think their qualities are bigger than they really are. I, on the other hand, am only confident about what I know I can really do.”
These words came from the former UFC heavyweight champion and now number one contender in the heavyweight division, Frank Mir, when speaking with Tatame.com. Mir’s confidence is often misconstrued among other heavyweight fighters as arrogance or cockiness, he states it is mere belief in himself. As he is set to take on the current champion Junior Dos Santos at UFC 146 in Las Vegas, May 26th, Mir is feeling more and more confident in what he “knows he can do.” The submission specialist is looking to shock the world and out fight the heavy handed boxer Dos Santos.
What do you all think? Can he shock the world and pull of the upset??Tags: featured, MMA NEWS, Strikeforce, strikeforce news, ufc news, UFC on FOX, ufc on fox 3, UFC on Fuel, UFC on FX
