Brock Lesnar has a simple way of winning - take down the opponent and brutally pound them on the ground. It is mostly successful but it didn't work on a Jiujitsu expert like Frank Mir who simply turned the tables around and submitted Lesnar via knee bar in their first fight (first ever UFC fight for the latter too). Relying on his size and wrestling alone isn't enough for Brock to beat Mir. He has won his two other fights since then. On the other hand, Frank Mir is on a rampage and has three straight wins (including Brock) and a massive victory over Mixed Martial Arts legend Antonio Noguiera.
There's still a possibility Lesnar will resort to takedown and ground and pound again but he should be wary of Mir's submission. For Mir, he should survive the initial Lesnar attack. Once he does, he should continually look for openings and submit the former NCAA Wrestling heavyweight champ again. Yes, Lesnar is a skilled wrestler and has punching power too as Randy Couture knows by now but no one can say for certain whether Lesnar's submission defense has really improved and this is where Mir can take advantage.
I wrote it down as if it is that simple, no it isn't. It will be a hard fight for the two warriors and as a MMA fan I know that. I hope the two give us a great fight and nobody gets seriously hurt or injured.
