In his pre-fight interview ahead of his bout with Roy Nelson at UFC 130 on May 28th, Frank Mir has been discussing how he envisages the fight playing out with the former TUF season 10 winner.
“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,” Mir says.
“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.”
