Frank Mir went into UFC 146 the clear underdog and was expecting to pull off another shocking victory, but it was not to be. Junior dos Santos stuffed Mir's only takedown attempt and then picked him apart before finally putting him down for good in the second round.
The loss will send Mir tumbling down the rankings, and while losing to the champion is nothing to shake your head at, Mir was clearly outclassed by JDS tonight.
With the loss, Mir's career can now go in a few directions. If Mir believes he's in the twilight years of his career, we may see a few more novelty-type fights. If he wants to make another run at the belt, he also has that option, as there's a few guys to face next that can help Mir take his career in the direction he wishes.
