My Take- Frank Mir is obviously not what he once was, but he is still a very tough opponent for someone with only 1 mma fight under his belt. Lesner is obviously the stronger of the 2, but I would predict its gonna be a hard for Lesner to win this match against someone with alot of experience in the octagon.

this should be a real test for lesnar. the last guy he fought was half his size. a focused and determined mir should be a tough match for him. prediction: mir gets bullied around but his technique and experience eventually yield the submission victory.
