Breaking down Frank Mir vs Brock Lesnar
As everyone out in the MMA Blogosphere is saying it all depends on what Frank Mir shows up blah blah blah. It's true, but it's really not worth repeating over and over again. The thing with Mir is that he's a very intelligent fighter, that's never been the question but whether or not he shows up in shape. Frank screamed that he was back after pulling off that kimura against Antoni Hardonk but beating Hardonk on the ground hardly validates that he's back.
Brock Lesnar is a complete variable though. He's 1-0 in MMA period, no amatuer fights, just one MMA fight. It's hard to tell where he's at by his his first fight as he beat said korean can from half guard.
What we do know:
Brock is one hell of an amatuer wrestler and wrestlers have had success in MMA.
