"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.

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

All lay n prayers.

dude, dont deny that GJ has put together some BORING ass game plans! that usually involve some sort of fighting without fighting. even Dana's gone on some rants about that! dont act like it doesnt happen.

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

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!"
