Pride talked about sending "Fujita and Sakuraba" to the UFC. It occured to me that Fujita vs. Mir would be an interesting fight due to the style matchups. Fujita is arguably the hardest headed fighter in the sport, a top wrestler and has decent submission defense. He almost KO'd Fedor.
Fujita is very difficult to take down and Mir is no takedown specialist. Fujita is also stronger and has more MMA experience. Mir would need to get it to the ground and catch him in a submission. There's no other probable way he could win this. And getting Fujita down then submitting him would be very very tough. Fedor did it but he almost got KO's first then had to blast Fujita with a punch to daze him before he could land the choke. Rocking Fujita on the feet would be tough for Mir. I think Fujita wins this. Thoughts?
