Icon7 Frank Mir: Junior dos Santos has 'no chance' of winning UFC 146 fight on the ground

Frank Mir: Junior dos Santos has 'no chance' of winning UFC 146 fight -

"Obviously, we're fighting a guy who's made his career now of not going to the ground. The only time I've ever seen him take a shot is if he's pretty handily winning the fight. He just does it to, maybe a change of pace to throw something out there. But as far as, you see when people engage him, he's a 'throw punches and run' kind of guy. He doesn't wanna sit there and get grabbed and taken down. He's not gonna fight that battle. If he was capable of doing it, we probably would've seen it already. The fact is that he avoids it like it's poison. I think for two reasons: One, I don't he's probably that very good on the ground, and two, he is so good on his feet."
He just isn't as multi-faceted as Velasquez is. As far as, when you fight dos Santos, I don't think it's any secret, he has no chance of winning the fight if it goes to the ground. If we go into a wrestling match, he's in trouble.
