Former UFC 265-Pound King Frank Mir Slams WWE Haters, Claims Bruce Lee Didn’t Take Part In Real Fights
After ending his UFC career in July 2017, Frank Mir competed in Bellator MMA, where he earned the score of 0-2, with losses to Fedor Emelianenko and Javy Ayala. The former UFC Heavyweight champion is set for WWE debut on Thursday, April 4th, under Josh Barnett’s “Bloodsport” banner.
But most of the combat sports fans are furious because of Mir’s decision to take part in “fake fights”.

“I hate when they’re like, ‘Oh, it’s fake,’” FRANK Mir told MMA Fighting. “Okay, hold on a second. You sit there and clamor about Bruce Lee. You know Bruce Lee didn’t do any real fights, right? That was all choreographed. But there was still danger. Guys still went to the hospital. Same thing. I’ve watched guys in pro wrestling actually die. It’s very dangerous. It’s very injury heavy. So anytime somebody says ‘that’s fake,’ I always laugh. That’s laughable. You couldn’t even begin to do what they’re doing. Extremely strenuous, on the fly, working with another human component, while there’s a crowd watching.”
Frank Mir (18-13 MMA, 16-11 UFC) also took part in two fights versus the former UFC 265-pound title holder and the current WWE Universal champion Brock Lesnar. In their first match, Mir defeated “The Conqueror” at UFC 81 on February 2, 2008, via kneebar. Lesnar avenged the loss at UFC 100 on July 11, 2009, where he earned a second-round TKO win.
It seems Mir is still interested in the third match against Brock, even in the squared ring.
“I’m not opposed to it, man,” Mir said. “I actually like it. I always wanted a third one. And however, wherever it could take place.”
