Overeem batters Mir for three rounds to win unanimous decision


Frank Mir took on Alistair Overeem at UFC 169 in a must-win situation for both heavyweight fighters who both were coming off consecutive loses.

In each of his two previous fights, Alistair Overeem fought at a frenetic pace, right up until the point he was knocked out.

Faced with a UFC 169 bout with Frank Mir in which it was believed the loser would be done with the company, the former Strikeforce champ knew he needed a change of approach.

Overeem went to Thailand to work on his cardio and it showed, as Overeem dominated the former UFC champ for three straight rounds at Newark's Prudential Center. All three judges scored the bout 30-27.

He's a good commentator, for sure. I was referring to his douchey arrogance.

#1 you have never fought #2 frank got outstruck 134 to 5.Let's say that again... 134-5Ya he shouldn't retire at all. He's a tough Bastard and I'm a fan but you need to politely retire from any Mma analysis.

I think Mir is pretty good. Hes had some decent showings as a commentator. Far from cringeworthy IMO. The worst "fighter to commentator" ive ever heard has to be tito. He was truly cringeworthy. I have never heard someone put words together so awkwardly in a commentating position......ever.

I'm pretty sure I've followed the sport longer, and know more about MMA then you. Losing to Overeem (a stylistic nightmare for Mir) isn't a fucking career ender. Mir can't beat the top dudes, but he could definitely still beat guys who are outside the elite..

Frank never backed down to anyone. Thanks for all the fight, good and bad.Reem is such a frustrating fighter.He's a kickboxer who kicked just once in 3 rounds?Is he even that technical? Just looks like a bully to me.
