At this point it’s practically an annual tradition. Just like pulling the Christmas tree out of storage, it’s time once again for the UFC to put Frank Mir in the cage with Brock Lesnar:
UFC officials, as well as those close to Lesnar, indicated that Frank Mir, with whom Lesnar has split two fights, is his next likely opponent. The fight makes sense. Mir is coming off a knockout win over Mirko Filipovic on Sept. 25, and he has been Lesnar’s biggest career rival, with insults between the two going back and forth dating back nearly three years.
Lesnar vs. Mir III is almost guaranteed to be a huge fight, given that Mir is an expert of hyping a fight, but also, legitimately, Mir doesn’t like Lesnar, feeling Lesnar disrespected him after beating him at UFC 100. The match would likely be as big or bigger than any championship match that UFC could promote right now.
Their first match was a huge success on pay-per-view. Their second, which Lesnar won via second round TKO, was at the time the biggest match in mixed martial arts history, going by public interest.
Yeah yeah money fame hype blah blah blah. Me bored. Plz to be make something different k? Off the top of my head, there’s a couple of heavyweights out there that deserve to be raped by a giant gorilla more than Frank Mir.
