Junior Dos Santos questions Frank Mir’s manhood, says “he’s full of it”

UFC heavyweight champ Junior dos Santos isn’t known for being much of a trash-talker, instead earning a reputation as a soft-spoken, humble fighter who would rather smash an opponent with actual jabs instead of throw any of the verbal variety. However, it appears he’s harboring some level of dislike regarding top contender Frank Mir who he recently took to task on an episode of UFC Primetime documenting the lead up to their headlining tilt at UFC 146.

“He’s not a man,” said the normally reserved Brazilian during a dinner conversation with mentor Antonio Rodrigo Noguiera. “He gives up. Against Shane Carwin, he pretended he was hurt. He’s full of it.”

The ill will also apparently carried over to Nogueira who labeled Mir’s ground game as “simple” and stated he doesn’t feel his former adversary deserves to be called a champion.

Mir-Dos Santos fight on May 26 in Las Vegas. A new episode of UFC Primetime will air this Friday night after TUF 15 concludes.

    As much as I like JDS, he didn’t quit. He was separated from consciousness by a very large man with equally large fists.

    I’d like to remind Big Nog that Mir’s “simple ground game” broke his arm…and whether it is simple or not ( I personally do not believe it is), no one can argue its’ effectiveness.

    Yeah, Nogueira says Mir’s ground game is simple but his attacks are dangerous.

    I don’t understand how the word “simple” applies. So Mir’s probably not going to notch a win via gogoplata; so what… I’m not sure what point they’re trying to make.

    at the time of watching i thought Frank basically lay down and gave up against Carwin, i never rewatched it so my opinion is till the same. granted he was being clubbed around the head, but i believe he quit/stopped fighting

    IMO, he looked like he was trying to grab an arm, turned his head into a punch and got put down like a rabid dog.

    Considering what Mir’s been through, I think labelling him a quitter is posturing and little more.

    Mir sub Rd 2… Going home with a limb & a strap…. Umm Ok maybe that’s a bit much but I hope Mir pulls a win out of his ass some how.

  • That’s not a far removed possibility Rece. Jr can call Mir’s ground game simple all he wants….he just SIMPLY, out grappled the greatest grappler in MMA history, escaped his signature choke, prevented a sweep by using his legs to block Nog, snatched a Kimura, reswept him from side control with the same kimura, and snapped his arm like a twig…Simple as that.

    I hope Junior is just engaging in a little prefight banter….Roy marked Jr up pretty good, and so did Cro Cop….and neither one of them has the power in their hands that Mir does(cro cop did about 6 years ago).
    Most likely outcome is Mir on his face late in the first round…..my preferred outcome is Mir with the surprise knock down followed by him snatching an arm or leg as Junior flails from an unfamiliar position, rocked, on his back with an actual well rounded monster coming for the win.

    I like JDS and he’s been a very respectful fighter, unfortunately here he is saying things he really doesn’t believe.

    This is very obvious that his commentary is somehow a support to his training partner Big Nog. JDS should just publicly give Mir his dues for doing what no-one has done before him, and then go and cement his own legacy by ko’ing Mir within a minute to retain his title.
