Pro Fighting Fans provides their UFC 100 predictions as we take a look at the Main Event for UFC 100, the Heavyweight title bout scheduled between Brock Lesnar (3-1) vs. Frank Mir (12-3). For the entire fight card and the UFC 100 results after the event, look to the experts at ProFighting-fans.com.
Frank Mir defeated the inexperienced Lesnar the first time these two faced each other at UFC 81, but it was anything but easy. Brock Lesnar dominated the fight decimating Mir’s face with violent hammer strikes from the mount position. Inexplicably, referee Steve Mazzagatti stood the fight up due to strikes to the back of Mir’s head. Mazzagatti’s call was easily one of the worst in the history of the sport as he also deducted a point. Incredibly, all of this happened in the first 35 seconds of the fight. The fight progressed and within seconds Lesnar pounced again and proceeded to dominate with ground and pound. Mir used one of the best guards in MMA to survive and force Lesnar to his feet. Brock, while on his feet, controlled each of Mir’s legs while trying to pass guard. Mir used his left leg to grab Brock’s right leg and bam, over in seconds with Brock tapping out 1:37 into the 1 st round due to a Ankle Lock. Since that fight, Lesnar pummeled Heath Herring’s face into the size of a watermelon, which might have been an improvement, cruising to an impressive victory. Lesnar then took on one of the greatest in the history of the sport, Randy Couture, for the interim UFC Heavyweight Title. Lesnar again appeared to be more patient as he landed a crushing right hand to Couture’s temple and then finished the fight with several hammer strikes until the referee stopped the bout. Mir has only fought once since the Lesnar bout as he coached against Antonio “Minotauro” Nogueira in season 8 of The Ultimate Fighter. Mir fought Noguiera at UFC 92 for the right to face Lesnar for the title. Mir, shockingly, kept the fight in the stand up and picked Minotauro apart. Mir has overcome a serious motorcycle injury and climbed back to the upper echelon of the heavyweight division. Now his goal is clear, become the Heavyweight Champion once again.
