    [after reading this i like Mir substantially more. I think Anderson would rape him, but he seemed more modest than he has in the past and i like his willingness to fight]

    he's a douche, but he understands the fight game and explains it very well.

    naw, he is. He knows his shit but he always seems to put a little cocky douche bag spin on everything.

    He sort of has to be, doesn't he? After this:

    I do think Mir would beat Silva, but it would be smart for him to go to the mat instead of standing with him.

    :mamoru: I'm not sure enough to bet on it. We'll talk after he fights Kongo.

    If he stands with Kongo, I think he'll get knocked out. If he's smart enough to go to the ground he'll probably win. So I think that fight will tell us a lot about how he'll do with Silva.

    I would also put 20 on Silva if this bet ever happens.

    for the sake of me wanting to see this fight, I hope Mir takes Kongo down, grabs one of his chicken legs, rubs his moobs all over it, and makes him tap.

    i still dont get all the frank mir hate. :dunno:

    sure he's an annoying sackriding faggot on WEC whenever Miguel fights, but dude spits out so much knowledge and is articulate unlike most other fighters who play the commentating game. and yes, the Echo commercial came off pretty douchey.

    but in most of his interviews, he usually comes off pretty humble imo and if he appears cocky, he backs it up with good reason. :dunno:

    He would be retarded not to take Kongo to the ground. Kongos ground game is sad, if Mir stands with him it will be incredibly stupid.

    He does seem incredibly humble, yeah he talks shit, he might run his mouth a bit...but hes one of the top HW fighters in the world, hes shown us time and time again he can back up the talk. Yeah he lost to Lesnar but so did Randy Couture. Mir can fight and has good reason to run his mouth,when he does it that is.

    But he says over and over how he likes to stand and swing. I have a feeling he's going to try it against Kongo, to show everybody how good his standup is, and then get knocked out.

    I expect him to be on the receiving end of another TKO (punches) to go with his other 4. I think he's trying to collect the whole set.

    If it ever happens and you're interested in betting I'll throw a couple hundred on Silva.

    Couture did it without talking shit, though.

    When you say "If he thinks a take-down, stuff to my half-guard and throwing a bunch of punches is gonna win the fight; then the fans are gonna be disappointed when he goes home with a quick submission", and then get knocked out when he takes you down, stuffs your half guard, and throws a bunch of punches, you end up looking kind of dumb.

    I'm actually not really even that confident in Silva in that fight but I like to bet :hsugh:

    I'd say I'm about 60-75% sure he'd win, but it'd be interesting.

    Even if I do bet you, it'll be like $10 or $20. No hundreds. :nono:

    Mir has an air of douche baggery that surrounds him even when he tries to be humble and honest. He even found a way to throw in Miguel Torres' name in there somehow.

    Randy is one of those guys who doesnt talk shit though, like Forrest and well...thats about it i guess. You hear that shit before 98% of the fights in the UFC. I realize he said it and he ended up looking stupid for it, but in every fight a guy ends up eating his words. I guess it is kinda different when you flat out say "he wont do that" and he does it though :mamoru: . I still think hes pretty humble compared to a lot of fighters.
