UFC 81: Brock Lesnar vs Frank Mir
The UFC announced that Brock Lesnar's debut would be on Super Bowl weekend at UFC 81. I know a lot of people are making out Brock Lesnar to be the second coming of jesus but shit Frank Mir? I know he hasn't performed the best in some of his recent outings but I'll go as far as to say he looked somewhat like his old self against Antoni Hardonk. This is a classic BJJ vs Wreslter match up style wise. If Frank can break big Timmy's arm then I wouldn't be surprised to see him go for an armbar from the bottom or an Omaplata then transition to a toe hold like he did against Tank Abbott. I think we'll see Brock come out and tackle Frank Mir so i'm guessing we won't see to much stand up. If we do i'd bet Frank Mir has the edge there, I've seen Brock's first fight and there wasn't really any stand up in that fight either.
It'll defiantely be interesting to see whether or not Brock is for real and Frank Mir is definately a good first test if he is able to truly return to his own form.
