Mir: UFC wrestlers could rip Overeem down in a cage

source: mma30.com

(5:40 mark) Roy Nelson is most dangerous if you move back. He is very good at moving forward ... One thing I am going to do is move in, just kind of crash into him. I am a bigger, stronger guy, faster. I am not going to move backwards.

Now every top 10 heavyweight in the world is all together now. Now there is no reason we cannot all fight each other.

(8:10 mark) Obviously I still think Fedor is a great fighter ... all fighters have times in their career they are not doing well. Al athletes have slumps ... I've always admired him. It's weird to say that you admire someone and to show it want to punch them in the face ... that's fighting I guess.

(8:38) With all the guys with the wrestling ability (in the UFC) I dont think Overeem will do as well as a lot of the fans would like him to do ...He's been fighting in boxing rings ...and now going to fight in a cage ... You have some guys Velasquez or Carwin or Brock, they are going to change levels and push you against a cage and rip you down. When youre a striker, it's a issue.

Fighters can't evolve and improve? I guess GSP is the same guy who got subbed by Hughes a few years ago. Shields by armbar next week in that case.

Mir is right, a wrestler like Cain is a horrible match up for Reem. Reem is a lil overrated. He is the same HW that got ko'd by all the LHW's a few years ago.

Never been a Mir fan. I've never rooted for him, but he is a great spokesman for MMA. 2nd only to Randy.

Valid points, and Mir is a MMA legend compared to Overeem. If you look at things objectively, Mir is a pretty legit mma fighter who went through some hard times and came back.
