I've got a huge amount of respect for Mir. This is a guy who been fighting in the UFC since 2001. There are few fighters from that era still active, nevermind someone who is still getting title fights. Over the last few years it's become clear that striking is his weakpoint. He was overwhelmed by Dos Santos, Carwin and Nog (before he got the sub). Dos Santos is an amazing boxer but he was overwhelmed with Brock too - striking is hardly his strong point. I can't help but think that if he really focused on his striking he would be a very difficult fighter and wouldn't have to rely on getting the other fighter to the ground (the same could be said for Brock). I'd love to see him work on his striking more and improve his overall speed. Does Mir Need To Work On His Striking?
