Frank Mir and JDS go face-to-face ahead of this weekend's UFC 146Posted on May 23, 2012, 11:17 AM by Anton Gurevich
UFC Heavyweight champion Junior "Cigano" dos Santos and the challenger Frank Mir went face-to-face on FOX Sports, as part of their promotional activity ahead of this weekend's UFC 146 fight card in Las Vegas, Nevada.
JDS and Mir discussed their expectations from the fight, and some of the trash talk moments during the build-up for the fight. Dos Santos explained his "Frank Mir is not a man" comments, claiming that the former two-time UFC Heavyweight champ is always struggling to overcome difficulties during the fight. As far as predictions go, Frank Mir promised a submission victory in Round 1, while Junior dos Santos asked for a 2nd round KO victory.
"Basically, you have to go and fight him. The fact that I'm a south paw, the way I'm gonna try maneuver and work -- I have ideas to try and nullify his jab. We can all gameplan and work out all these different contingency plans, but lose the fight night when we start throwing down leather. We'll see what happens. Obviously, I predict that I win by submission. Early first round."
