If Lesnar has good cardio he should win this fight easy. If he gets gassed out early, Mir will submit him with an armbar.

Amazin- The Ortiz-Machida match just got the official stamp of approval.

I view it the other way with the same result. If Mir comes to the fight in shape with good cardio, he'll likely submit Lesnar.

It will be interesting to see but Lesnar appears to me to be the type of fighter who gives BJJ dudes fits; vicious GNP and the strength to power out of anything. Granted, I am making a lot of assumptions based on one fight.

I thought Lesnar did pretty well, but he still has a lot to learn. With a 1-0 record, it was tough to expect him to win that fight against a former champ.

But how about Nogueira? :-°
He takes a pounding from Sylvia in the first round and still manages to get a win. Very happy for him and happy to see Sylvia lose. :-)

Pride wins! Take that infidels. :-b

Poor Mir - it was a no-win situation for him. If he wins it's only b/c he was fighting a pro wrestling guy who was an MMA noob but if he loses he lost to the noob. Even though he won all anyone will remember is him getting overpowered and pummelled on the ground.

I'm not sure how most fans feel about it but I was impressed with Mir. Lesnar is no joke. I really enjoyed this card overall. ;-D

Lesnar showed a ton of potential just by being able to toss around Mir so easy. Even though he a wrestler by nature, his ground game has a long long way to go. Using little rabbit punches as a ground & pound strategy will get you nowhere, even if your hands weigh 50lbs each. 6 months of jiujitsu training would go a long way just so he can get a better understanding of body presence. I don;t see him having a problem doing a takedown of Tim Sylvia like everyone else has had so much trouble with in the past.

Lesnar has been training BJJ for nearly two years. He just made a mistake. I thought his defense of Mir positioning for the arm bars was very impressive. :-)

that long? maybe i'm just used to it loooking a little more graceful :-) . His body languge make it look like he wasn't too mindful of

Like Mir alluded to, his sheer upper-body girth is a natural defense for arm-bars, but he D was still good there regardless.

Yeah, definitely a fair point. His neck is freakish.
