Mir Not Interested In Rubber Match With Lesnar Right Now

Matt Boone


The following is an excerpt from an interview with UFC Heavyweight contender Frank Mir:

“(A fight against Brock Lesnar) Honestly right now, probably no. Just because the (Shane) Carwin fight, (Lesnar) didn’t look all that spectacular. I think a lot of people might have thought that he lost that fight. And then the (Cain) Velasquez fight obviously, Velasquez made (Brock) basically shout ‘Stop, Enough, Enough’ before he tapped due to strikes and that looked really bad.”

“Right now I’m coming a win off of Mirko (Cro Cop), I would maybe like to see me get another win and (Brock) himself redeem himself, so that way it’s more relevant to the division. Not just having the third fight for the sake of having the third fight. But having it to where it actually has some substance so that whoever wins will position themselves for a title shot. I think it has a lot more meaning that way.”
