    Thumbs up Ultimate Fighter Heavyweight Champ Frank Mirs' pro-gun interview

    This highly-trained, musclehead of a fighter sounds surprisingly intelligent. I just saw him defeat a gigantic WWE guy who's crossing over to MMA, and I kinda liked him for that. AFter the interview, He's earned some real props.

    I wouldn't know this fella if i saw him . What teewee i watch is either news , history, discovery or sci fi . With that being said apparently the UF stuff is somewhat popular , and any pro gun celeb is a good celeb lol, Ill just take your word he advocates firearms ownership and not bother to read the link .

    I watched the video, and it does seem like a good interview...I don't know who the guy is either. I'm not so sure about his training methods with live ammo, but perhaps he was exaggerating a little.

    To me, live fire drills with somebody jumping on my back and kicking me and putting me in a bear hug seems pretty dangerous. YMMV

    He sounded very intelligent and informed. We could use more people with "mike" time like this.

    Not all of it is live fire, I would think. Either way, the guy's a good advocate for self-defense in general, not just gun ownership. He's alright in my book.

    Frank Mir is a legend in the UFC since its beginnings in the mid '90s.

    He has great hand to hand skills.

    Any famous proponent for our cause that can speak eloquently and intelligently is good for espousing the pro-gun platform to the public. Frank Mir is not mainstream but he is a star in his field.

    I loved watching Mir beat that WWE guy. I was afraid he was gonna lose at first, but great comeback. Glad he's pro-gun as well as an amazing fighter.

    Only problem is a lot of people out there think these guys are barbarians, so this won't be a shock when a "barbarian," likes guns.

    People don't understand this is a sport, and these guys are athletes, like boxers.

    When I saw Brock Lesnar dropping those hammer fist punches on him, I thought Mir was a goner. Goes to show you that if you can submit a guy, you are always in the fight.

    Frank Mir is a former UFC Champion- he's a big name in MMA. People respect him & listen to his perspective. I think this is a plus for us pro-gun folks.

    That's the funny thing too. A number of them are "smarter than the average bear" so to speak. Mir is just one example. Another would be Rich Franklin(BS in Mathematics and Masters in Secondary Ed and formerly a full time HS math teacher prior to the UFC). They're not all blockheads. We do need more of guys like Mir on our side though as they do carry a following so they get more exposure.
