  Introduction: No, this is not a fighter-bashing attempt to discredit Frank Mir as a world class heavy weight or attack his rank or character as a fighter. This is simply an objective analysis of his ground game. 
_______________________________





At this point, Frank Mir has made his mark as possibly the most dangerous submission artist in the sport. 


His resume speaks for itself; a devastating kimura over the legendary Rodrigo Nogueira, a guillotine choke that deprived Cheick Kongo of consciousness, a beautiful kneebar over Brock Lesnar, a devastating arm bar that broke the arm of Tim Sylvia, a Hoodini type arm lock on Pete Williams. 


Since his 2001 MMA debut, Frank Mir has been awing audiences with his breath taking submission skills. 


His Jiu-Jitsu is a dangerous blend of devastating power and marvelous technique. 

















___________________________________________


So how dare I, a 20-year old grappling enthusiast with nothing but 6 years of training have the audacity to criticize one of the most dangerous BJJ black belts in the sport? 


First of all, I understand that Frank Mir, and even the opponents he submitted, would effortlessly destroy me in a grappling match.

I wonder if OP ever linked the rest of the article or if we will be left to fruitlessly click "more" for the rest of time.

I wonder why RV515 revived a 4 month old thread to say essentially nothing over 2 consecutive posts.

I wonder...

Right, bro. Also:

  • Anderson Silva's striking is overrated.
  • GSP's wrestling is overrated.
  • Condit's finishing ability is overrated.
  • Oh, and Kongo's cupchecking abilities are overrated, as well.

Come off it, mate.

Well, he tapped Nog, I think that should say enough about his ground skills. That's just me though. Phone Post

Up until he subbed Nog I consistently said he's never subbed anyone besides Tavern years ago. I'm not a fan but I gotta him his respect. His ground is top notch. Phone Post

You can argue he has the best and most explosive Bjj of the heavyweight decision, not sure if you are serious or not. Phone Post
