Frank Mir: “I don’t see anywhere I don’t feel comfortable with CroCop – I can beat him in more ways than he can beat me.”

Former UFC heavyweight champion, Frank Mir thinks he can beat former PRIDE legend, Mirko Cro Cop at UFC 119 in more ways than Cro Cop can beat him.

Mir, speaking during a video interview on UFC.com, said:

“I think Crocop is still the same individual we saw in PRIDE. I think a lot of guys have seen enough tape on him to know that if you walk away from him or stand there in front of him you could be in for a dangerous night because he still has the same leg he always had.”

“He has a lot of speed and quickness… Mirko is very good on his feet; I’m not bad on my feet either. Add in the wrestling that I have been working on, the jiu jitsu aspect, he has many more things to worry about. Once that cage door shuts every advantage is mine.”

“I don’t see anywhere I don’t feel comfortable with CroCop – I can beat him in more ways than he can beat me.”
