The reason Frank Mir lost!
I am interested in hearing peoples response to the question, why did Frank Mir lose to Brock Lesnar.
Obviously, those of us that actually saw the event could detail what specifically happened, but this is not what I am looking for here.
I think the fight raises some interesting questions and points as to "bigger/stronger" verses "technique/strategy."
We are told that BJJ and Martial Arts in general give the "smaller/weaker" person the ability to defend themselves against the "bigger/stronger" attacker.
However, this does not seem to be what is seen lately in the MMA world. Brock beat Couture, GSP beat Penn, Brock beats Mir. It seems lately that the stronger more athletically superior fighters are winning.
One could make the statement that at some point physics makes the argument an easy one in favor of the "bigger/stronger." But if that is the case where is the tipping point?
