Frank Mir Assesses Shane Carwin In New Interview

After beating Cheick Kongo with relative ease at UFC 107, Frank Mir finds himself back in the title picture in the heavyweight division.

In a new interview at his home with for, Mir talks about his most recent win, his recent weight gain, and assesses his next opponent – No.1 contender Shane Carwin.

Key Quotes:

On Carwin’s strengths: “He’s a heavy handed individual who’s a great athlete, whos a very big heavyweight.  I think that he has excellent wrestling – I definitely say he has the wrestling edge on me.”

On his own gameplan: “I’m going to have to use the striking and jiu jitsu edges that I have to try to negate that.  Towards ok yeah, your a better wrestler than I am but I’m going to be punching you a lot, and moving to different angles to hopefully draw away from your wrestling abilities.”
