                    <p>Frank Mir first defeated Brock Lesnar, then lost by TKO the second time they fought. Lesnar&nbsp;has been rumored to be considering a return and Mir would be happy to have the rubber match and believes his improved stand up would make the difference:</p>

“I think I would crush him standing up now,” Mir said. “I think that on the ground and stuff, I’ve worked with Ricky Lundell and stuff a lot and learned how to nullify the wrestling. I wrestled three rounds with Daniel Cormier who’s an Olympic level wrestler and he had a difficult time taking me down. I think that Lesnar would really have to throw caution to the wind and really rush through and I don’t think that he’s gotten any better at wanting to take punches.

“I’ve always heard those rumors from his camp that he doesn’t like to get hit and we’ve seen it in the hfights,” Mir continued. “The jab-hook combination that I landed on Bigfoot would have floored him too. And then ground and pound I threw on him, to Bigfoot, I think that the same thing that happened with [Lesnar] and Velasquez – when he finally hit his back, screaming for the fight to be stopped. I just don’t know that he’d have time to scream with me.”

lesnar tko rd 1 Phone Post 3.0

that loss haunts him.

Yeah, he probably would. Brock probably won't come back though Phone Post 3.0

He was in the best shape of his life for 100 and could do nothing...that was coming off of the first Nog fight in which his striking looked better than it ever had imo. Also there is no way he got that much better at wrestling. There is an issue of potential. He can work on it all he wants, but his ceiling is lower. Phone Post 3.0

He's trying so hard to get that rematch lol Phone Post 3.0

He loves his combo that took out Bigfoot lol. Phone Post 3.0

Can't unscramble eggs. 

Not a bad thing I like Mir but he'll be bringing up that combo quite a bit I feel. Phone Post 3.0

Stay out of Lesnar's strawberry patch!!! Phone Post 3.0

This Phone Post 3.0

hahaha. No. Phone Post 3.0

If only that combo could stop the take down.

Bring up a good point with the Cormier fight and I do believe he has improved his striking . But lesnar is much more powerful so if he gets the td it could be a repeat Phone Post 3.0

cormier didnt want to take Mir down. He wanted to stuff him against the fence and outwork him in the clinch. Plus Brock took Mir down with ease.

Lol this fuckin guy Phone Post 3.0

i think mir wins. lesnar was never the same after his bout with diveticulitis. he's not the same fighter he was at ufc 100.

CaptChaos - cormier didnt want to take Mir down. He wanted to stuff him against the fence and outwork him in the clinch. Plus Brock took Mir down with ease.
This. Cormier had his way with mir the whole fight. Phone Post 3.0

Brock would be all juiced up again, i'd pick him.

This amazing win streak he's on is giving him a new found confidence. Excited to see if it takes him to a title shot. I think he has what it takes to take out Cain.
