    Frank Mir at a Russian barbershop.
    Talks ACB, Fedor, Khabib and compares UFC to pro-wrestling.



    My transcript below:


    5:19
    You guys like martial-arts and not entertainment. So all the fighters here are fighters, not entertainers. Where in the US, they like pro-wrestling. So being a good fighter is only half of it. The rest is uh, being entertainment.

    That's why Conor McGregor does so well. He's a good fighter, but lets face it, if Khabib and him face off. I wouldn't bet on Conor to last even past a round. But he makes more money than Khabib because he has such a great mouth.


    8:10
    I think Khabib is more true to his character, he's a soft spoken guy. He does all his talking with his fists. He's not getting title shots. He's not going to be talked about in the US media. A guy who's 24 and 0.

    Amongst the fighters, we know he's the best guy really in the world at lightweight. I don't think anybody questions his ability to destroy guys and how powerful he is. You know, ESPN 's not knocking his door down to do interviews with him, he's not doing commercials, you know, Conor is. Conor's making millions of dollars fighting.

    So I think Khabib now sees that and realizes, I need to start talking more. Here he goes out and destroys Micheal Johnson in his last fight. Made Michael Johnson look like he shouldn't be in the top 10. Michael Johnson's an excellent fighter, wrestles with Rashad Evans on a regular basis in camp. He couldn't do nothing against Khabib.

    Khabib completely destroyed him on the ground. It was brutal, very brutal, until the submission. People more talked about what he said after the fight, about Conor being a chicken, and being choked on the ground. That made the headlines, and not how great of a fighter he was, and how devastating he was on the ground. I think he sees that. So here he can put on a great show, but its not the show that counts, its what you say afterwards that's really going to get you that title shot.

    Fighters get this shit wrong all the time, though I do have Khabib as #1 until proven otherwise.

    they also knew Edwar Alvarez was gonna beat Conor

    as was Chad Mendez
    as was Dustin Poirer

    envy runs deep amongst the fighters, keep underestimating Conor

    Khabib got a gift decision against Tibau and I don't fancy his chances against Ferguson, I'd say the jury is still out on who the best fighter at lightweight is. Mir is in Russia so kidding his hosts asses, is normal.

    Not saying Khabib wouldn't beat Conor, but Conor destroying the champ who destroyed the unstoppable RDA is a bigger accomplishment than Khabib beating 20 cans and 2 non-top-5 fighters in the weight class.

    Frank has never picked Conor to win a fight. Dude's been concussed too often to think clearly

    Conor does so well because he's knocked out two champs at two different weight classes

    Conor does very well when he has the size advantage.

    Really? The unstoppable RDA? Might want to check his record.
