"Obviously, Brock Lesnar is stronger than I am," Mir said. "He's stronger than most anybody he competes against, so if I just lay there, I'm going to get crushed. But, if I can use constant motion, move around and use some speed; the same thing when a little guy fights a big guy in the gym. He has to keep the fight moving."
This is all good and well, but what if Mir discovers Brock Lesnar is actually faster than him? Even with Mir's excellent hip movement from the guard position, Lesnar seems quick enough and heavy handed enough to lay to waste the best laid plans of mice and men...and former UFC heavyweight champions. I'm not sure at all that speed is Mir's ally in this fight.
