Frank Mir says fighting Brock was tougher than facing Fedor Lesnar and Emelianenko are two completely different animals when it comes to fighting styles. Lesnar used his wrestling background and brute strength to become the UFC heavyweight champion, while Emelianenko relied on his power and Sambo background to not only win the PRIDE heavyweight title, but defeat some of the greatest heavyweights the sport has ever seen. Many in MMA circles would say Emelianenko would be the tougher matchup due to him being the more well-rounded fighter. But Mir, the former two-time UFC heavyweight champ, doesn't see it that way at all. "Oh Brock, no doubt about it [is the tougher fighter]," Mir, who faces Javy Ayala in the co-main event of Friday's Bellator 212, admitted to Sporting News. "[Lesnar's] physical speed and the wrestling in just being able to control position. Fedor’s wrestling isn't very good. At his age, he’s become just a pure striker. We saw that he had no submission ability and his grappling looked pathetic against Chael. His hands were fast as s— and were explosive and clean. But he’s a one-trick pony. With Brock being such a good wrestler and being really honest, with a cage, it is a tough style to go against. If you look at it, it’s much more consistent of the guys in MMA that are good wrestlers."
