Frank Mir talked exclusively to TATAME Magazine said he’s not the best grappler in MMA’s heavyweight division.

The American, who in last December submitted Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, said this “title” belongs to a Brazilian. “When people compliment my Jiu-Jitsu I also say Werdum’s is better than mine”, Mir said, who through his career defeated names like Brock Lesnar, Tim Sylvia and Roberto Traven using the gentle art.

Werdum, who fights this Saturday at UFC 143, when he meets Roy Nelson, was caught by surprise by the good words said about him.

“I didn’t see it coming, I’ve always seen him as a ‘cocky’ guy”, he told TATAME. “I guess he’s a very good athlete, and he proved the world he has great Jiu-Jitsu level… I don’t see myself as the best on the ground, but I’ve shown the world I can handle things there”.

Happy about the compliments, Fabrício does not discard a bout against Mir at UFC’s cage, once the American does not have a bout scheduled since he defeated Nogueira at UFC 140, in December.

“I guess this fight could happen, absolutely… My next appointment is Roy Nelson, but it’s one of the fights that might come up”.

Werdum is a better grappler.

Mur is a better MMA fighter.

Mir has never had a problem calling it the way it is. He has a very honest self assessment of himself which is how he has been able to evolve so much over the years. Phone Post

Werdum needs to get past Roy first before he even considers 'future matchups' because if he overlooks roy he may be fighting Fedor in some shitty promotion for $1000

Not sure why anyone would write off Werdum in a fight against Mir.

Mir would be in the fight because Werdum isn't gonna outwrestle him and he (Mir) has more pop in his hands. He could keep it standing and trade. On the mat, its a toss up, but NO ONE said Mir would survive Nog either so he could cancel out and defend well enough.

Mir then began wrestling at Bonanza High School in Las Vegas, Nevada where during his junior year he lost his first nine matches.[8] During his senior year (1998) he went 44-1 and won the state championship
