UFC Quick Quote: It's finish early or lose for Frank Mir at UFC 81

frank mir ufc 81

"... in this fight it looks like I'm going to be able to use a lot of half guard and closed guard maneuvers, because that's his style. And no matter what training he's done, even if he tries to throw punches and back up to use his wrestling to counter my takedowns, eventually he's going to take me down.... Definitely a finish cause that's the only way I'm going to win. I'm not going to out-wrestle Lesnar for 15 minutes and put him on his back and hold him down. So for me to win I either have to take his arm or neck, or knock him upside his head."

-- Frank Mir offers up a realistic assessment via on his upcoming heavyweight bout with Brock Lesnar at UFC 81: "Breaking Point" this Saturday, February 2, at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. This actually seems dead on in a fight that seems damn near impossible to predict an outcome.
