Former UFC heavyweight champion has always taken a rather blunt approach to assessing not only his opponents, but also himself, and things are no different when he talks about his pending fight with current UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos at Saturday night’s UFC 146 in Las Vegas.
“He’s good on his feet. Obviously the fight starts there, but if I could get the fight to the ground, I’m not waving the guy up,” Mir stated matter-of-factly.
That’s not to say that Mir doesn’t think he can stand and trade with dos Santos; he’s worked hard to round out his game. But on Saturday, if Mir can get his Brazilian foe to the mat, you better believe it will happen.
