Frank Mir recently appeared as a guest host on ESPN’s weekly MMA show entitled “MMA Live”. He did a great job as an analyst for most of the show but some may take exception to the following statement regarding the pound-for-pound status of Fedor Emelianenko:
“I don’t have Fedor being in the top … I don’t have him above B.J. Penn, St. Pierre. I think that if all those guys weighed 155 pounds, that Fedor can’t beat B.J., he can’t beat Georges St. Pierre, and that’s what pound for pound means. It means that if they were exactly the same size. I think that some people are a little misunderstanding of that whole idea.”
