does anyone else feel the same way?
Indeed. That UFC Fight club event a few fights ago pretty much highlighted Mirs ego in the worst light possible. You get the impression if you were to run into Brock somewhere, talking to him "man to man" really wouldnt be anything. He's a confident guy that has a real world sensibility to him. Frank on the other hand seems, lately, to think he's a cross between Bruce Lee and a godless Rickson Gracie. His elitism for himself over others is worrying and his comments about Brock are hilarious. According to Mir, he is going to handle Brock as if Brock was a new born baby ,which that in itself is a recipe for disaster,imo.
