"I've always been impressed with Greg Jackson's game planning."

^I lol'd at this because of the criticism GJ has received lately but he is a good coach and seems to genuinely care about his fighters.

It seems that Jon Jones must have been talking up Greg Jackson a lot with Frank around while filming TUF but isn't there a thread that says that Frank and Jon got into some sort of altercation on the show? Phone Post

I love the fact that random douchebags on the internet think they know better about whether or not GJ is a legit coach than a guy like Mir who, like him or not, is an intelligent guy who's been around the sport at the elite level for over a decade.

It's mind-boggling how much Dana's irrational rants actually influence MMA fans.

Jackson will find a way to utilize Mir's submissions more effectively.

Winner: Frank Mir by armbar.

Frank Mir is a celebral fighter, Greg Jackson is a celebral coach, I fear the combination of the two together will result in Frank Mir entering the octagon as the bell rings and doing this

Bizarre decision. I don't think there is any "gameplanning" that will get Mir the win here. He needs to improve his standup and Jackson isn't the greatest at that.

Aleck911 -  Jon Jones is boring? Phone Post

i guess those 3 decision wins he had must have been really, really boring, to outweigh the 8 KO's and 6 subs....

Yes....everyone Jackson coaches is boring.  Jones, Condit, Diego, Cowboy, Cub Swanson, Dodson, Brandao, Leonard Garcia, Marquardt, Stann, Arlovski.

All lay n prayers.


LOL nice.

i think this might seem like a good choice at first for some fighters, but not really for Mir...

obviously Greg Jackson is very successful at getting guys the win, and a high percentage of those are UD's. however, Mir is more successful at finishing than a lot of guys...his decisons and KO's are equal at 3 apiece, but he's got 9 subs.

to me, if he plans for a long fight, he stands a chance of getting KO'd....but if he plans an agressive ground attack, i could see him getting a submission.

regardless, i do commend him for looking at trying something new, especially for a guy who's been in MMA/UFC for a long time...

just my .02.

I thought people were underestimating Mir before he decided to go to team Jackson......I think this makes his chances even better.....

I wonder how the flying home every weekend might affect his readiness. Seems like that could burn someone out after training hard for 5 days before.

Nothing against Cormier, I like him a lot, dude seems genuinely nice, is a tremendous wrestler, knocks people the fuck out, and is an entertaining fighter through and through.

But I am cheering for Frank Mir, always rooted for Mir. Win by brutal sub.

PS: ThatKickDidntHuroooohhhhhhhh is an amazing nick :D

Mur needs to train with DUKE!

http://fcfighter.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Duke-Roufus.jpg

Why? He can't help his chin, all losses by ko/tko. He's gonna go for an early takedown like he did against JDS and then get beat to death on the feet until the ref stops it. Phone Post

My point taken -learning how to strike the right way will

-help him not get hit as much

-create openings for takedowns

Jackson:  "Ok Frank, here's the gameplan.  You need to just keep throwing jabs but make sure it's about 3 feet from landing.  That gives you enough room to avoid a takedown if he shoots."

Mir: "Uh, ok but if I never land any punches and don't go to the ground how can I win?"

Jackson:  "It makes the judges think you are doing something aggressive and they will give you a unanamous decision!"
