UFC 130: Frank Mir Warns Roy Nelson - 'I Hit A Lot Harder' Than Junior dos Santos

The new UFC 130: Rampage vs. Hamill Poster

With the cancellation of the previous UFC 130 main event of Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard, Frank Mir's bout against Roy Nelson gets promoted as the co-headliner of the event. Now, Mir tries to sell the fight with a few statements that are guaranteed to get people talking. He issued a warning to his opponent (transcribed by MMAMania):

"Fights that I've seen of Roy when people do well against him is when they move forward. If he makes a mistake ... I'm a lot bigger than (Junior) Dos Santos and I hit a lot harder. I'm a taller, longer athlete, quicker. I'll constantly pepper him with shots when he comes in and make him pay when I do hit him with something. When I hit Cheick Kongo, the punch alone threw him halfway across the Octagon. On the night of the fight, neither one of us are gonna pull any punches. If I catch him with something, I'll try to hurt him with it."
