Mir vs Kongo Prediction:
Many UFC fans are under estimating Frank Mir after his UFC 100 fight against Brock Lesnar, where he was pretty much embarrassed. Mir is one of the most dangerous Heavyweight fighters on the ground. Kongo on the other hand is a striker, who is dangerous with his punching, kicking and ground and pounding. Kongo’s takedown defense is below average and will struggle if this fight goes to the ground. Look for Mir to go for the early take down and control the fight. Frank Mir wins via unanimous decision.
