Quotes that Frank Mir would like Roy Nelson to know when the cage locks at UFC 130, May 28. Mir says that he is better than Nelson’s last opponent Junior dos Santos in all aspects whether it be physical or skill set. Agreed?
“Every fight I’ve hungered to win more than the last. The key to beating Roy really is not to move backwards. Fights that I’ve seen of Roy when people have done well with him is when they move forward. If he makes a mistake, I’m a lot bigger than Dos Santos and I hit a lot harder. I’m a taller, longer athlete, quicker, I’ll constantly pepper him with shots when he comes in and making him pay when I do hit him with something. When I hit Cheick Kongo, the punch alone threw him halfway across the Octagon. On the night of the fight, neither one of us is gonna pull any punches. If I catch him with something, I’ll try to hurt him with it.”
