    we all know frank has the tools to become champ again. he needs to beat up the cans to boost his confidence first and return to the old frank. and taht pic is an old picture.

    no offense i don't think frank is that good at all,he has great bjj skills and thats it,the only person he has ever beaten was tim and thats cause tim had no respect for him and got caught.he had a hard time beating sims and thats before the accident after he has looked like shit beating lesnar who's a rookie did not say alot to me.

    i think taking multiple sledge hammers to the face counts for something for mir in his last fight….

    i wouldn't put it past the ufc to give frank beatable fights and give him a shot at the title. hate him or love him he would bring some good sales in for a HW championship match.

    don't get me wrong his win over lesnar proved he can take a beating and win and i don't think he sucks he is just not that good, and i think he would match up well with nog, i think nog will beat him but he would make it a good fight but if you put him up against vera or other top h.w.'s and he will get beat bad.

    You guys are idiots, Mc Cully is a great matchup for Mir, they are both bjj black belts which means they'll probably stand up and bang. This fight will prove how good Mir really. Being one of Mc Cullys students ill tell you that Mir is not gonna have it that easy on the ground or on his feet. GO COACH MC CULLY
