UFC 100 Preview: Matt Hughes' Analysis of Brock vs Frank Mir
Former UFC Welterweight Champion Matt Hughes has offered his opinion on the main event for UFC 100, the title unification fight between former WWE Champion and current UFC Champion Brock Lesnar and UFC Interim Champion Frank Mir.
“Before Mir fought his last fight against Nogueira, I would have said that Lesnar is going to chew him up and spit him out," Hughes stated, "But Mir looked like a totally different fighter while fighting Nogueira. If that Frank Mir shows up, I think he’s going to do well. But I think Brock is going to use his strength and size effectively, and I don’t think he’s going to make the same mistake twice and give Frank an easy submission.”
HEYMAN HUSTLE reporter Hollywood Charlie was backstage at the UFC 100 weigh-ins, and had some very interesting observations posted earlier tonight, including what he felt was Mir's impatience for the showdown, and Lesnar's cry out to eat.
