Brock Lesnar vs Frank Mir 2
Watch as Brock Lesnar stepped into the Octagon against the former UFC heavyweight Champion Frank Mir for their second fight at UFC 100. Following the controversial decision for many in their first fight at UFC 81. When Lesnar had a point deducted for hitting Mir in the back of the head with referee Steve Mazzagatti. As a result, Mazzagatti stood the pair back up, losing Lesnar his dominant position.
It was a turning point in the fight which would see Mir taking the win via vicious kneebar at just 1.30 of the very first round. And going into their second fight it was a result which Lesnar looked to reverse. It was Lesnar’s superior strength and wrestling that would be the deciding factor in their second meeting. Their first fight seems to have left a bad taste in the mouth of Lesnar, who believes Mir held the kneebar too long. And so the hulking heavyweight entered this fight with a chip on his shoulder and a serious point to prove.
Lesnar Imposes His Will On Mir
And from the outset of the fight, Lesnar imposed his will on the former champion. Gaining top position from a takedown early in the first, Brock continued to pepper Mir with ground and pound from the top. Frank made several attempts but was unable to escape the clutch of the wrestler freakishly strong wrestler. As Lesnar continued to pulverise his opponent’s body and head right up to the first bell.
And from the beginning of the second round, the same story continued. As big Brock Lesnar continued his assault on Mir, who was now beginning to look like a bloodied mess. Brock delivered some vicious ground and pound as he trapped Frank up against the fence. Unleashing all of his power and punching Mir until he was almost out! It would take the referee stepping in and calling a stop to the action. Signalling the end of the fight and showing the world exactly what Lesnar was capable of doing to his opponents.
An all-around devastating performance from a guy who felt he had something to prove and prove it he did. OF course, Brock would go on to defend his title one more time before succumbing to a superior striker in Cain Velasquez. But this fight with Mir was the WWE star at his most dominant and brutal.
