Is Frank Mir even a factor anymore?

Do we really want to see Frank Mir go through the old legends now?

This Saturday, September 25th, we will see Frank Mir take on Mirko CroCop as a main event. I personally will not be ordering this PPV as I feel this is a “who cares” type of event.

Frank Mir, with all due respect, has been a great fighter over the years. I was one of the loudest guys when he made Brock tap in their first meeting. But watching the utter breakdown of sportsmanship from Mir before matches with his “daddy love me” and “wifey don’t leave me” bravado is laughable. It just goes to show you that while I consider Frank to be an intelligent person and I think he’s an okay commentator too, it seems this emotional need to make himself think he’s going to murder someone is somewhat played out. He has embarrassed himself before by talking so much smack but then getting it handed to him in the ring that I would say he should never talk derogatory about an opponent again.

Now, because Brock owns that division we get the insult of watching Mir fight yesterdays legends (Cro Cop) to get back on the title path.

It’s not interesting and at it’s best it is an under-card fight at this point. But I guess Joe Silva can’t get it right everytime.

Hey, that’s just me talking…

    I think many people sleep on these cards, and they end up being the best fights of the year. Mir does rub a lot of people the wrong way (me included) but you have to respect the skills! Cro Cop also just defeated Pat Berry and everyone thought Berry was the next big thing.

      I think Pat Berry was the unfortunate victim of idle fright. I don’t think Pat had his head on straight for that fight as he was in awe of his hero, CroCop. CroCop is still deadly if you’re sleeping out there but I don’t think he has assimilated properly into the U.S. fight scene or the Octagon. Combine that with a few years gone by and he’s barely in the Top Ten of Heavyweights. Difference is I think Pat will bounce back, but CroCop, I think this might of be his last fight in this organizxation. Unless UFC wants to use his as a really cool welcoming committee fight for new blood heavyweights.

      Also, I am talking all relative here as UFC fighters are obviously the elite of the elite, as Mir is of course a force to reckon with. It’s just that his over the top insane bravado before matches contradicts his in ring performances and also his supposed gentlemanly commentator persona.

      Also also, did anyone catch UFC’s Pat Berry on MTV’s World of Jenks? He came off really cool in the show as the training partner of an upcoming WEC Lightweight, Anthony “Showtime” Pettis.
