    Frank Mir shouldn't have stood up with him then and took him to the ground. Maybe then he would've at least had a chance at winning the belt.

    I think Mir is spot on. JDS never was a legit BJJ black belt. Velasquez almost had that armbar, and lost it due to both bodies being so slippery.

    Hard to argue with anything Mir said there. As he said JDS is a victim of his own success, but he needs to add that extra to his game for the next time he takes on Cain.

    you get hit that much, your submission game is not going to be super-sharp. seems harsh.

    Mir couldn't take Dos Santos down so he had to stand with him.

    Mir didn't say Dos Santos wasn't a legit black belt, he just said his ground game wasn't as good as some were implying. He's right that Dos Santos didn't attempt submissions.

    Even Junior already said he didn't use his jiu jitsu, why does he need a previous victim to repeat it for him?
    That's the difference between someone liek Anderson Silva, who, besides being the best striker in his division, will still fight guys from the bottom and work his jiu jitsu. JDS had a i'm a better boxer mind and never bothered to use his jiu jitsu, instead he just looked to push Cain away to stand up.

    ps: When did Cain go for a submission? i can't remember that.

    In before insecure JDS fans come in and act like Mir isn't credible to comment on anything JDS because he lost

    I didn't say Mir said it, I'm the one saying it :)
    JDS never was good on the ground. He hasn't gotten worse imo...Just never was good.

    Sounds funny coming from a guy that did not take him to the ground in his fight, instead he got punched in the face really hard. Bet you that JDS is not impressed with and is critical of Mirs stand up game. Not a big fan of Mir never have been, he is an awesome fighter but just the way he handles himself and the shit he says.

    Dos Santos is a black belt, so he's good. It just depends on what you think is good.

    Wha-... I... but... oh, carry on. :icon_neut

    EDIT:
    No, we're reasonable people. JDS himself acknowledged that he should've used his ground game more instead of trying to get up every single time.

    He went for an armbar but JDS defended it well. Can't remember the round.
