Sometimes people get rocked and you sit back and say ‘Oh yeah, I saw that coming’. Occasionally there’s a punch that drops a fighter in such a spectacular fashion that you can’t help but kick every piece of furniture in your living room. UFC 107 was one of those scenarios. I think we all incidentally threw our bottle of Red Stripe half-way across the room when Kongo went down from that frate trane of a punch Mir landed on his dome. Seconds later, Mir climbed off his unconsciousness body, threw his hands up in the air and at that exact moment we all knew the final transformation of Frank Mir was complete. Whatever humanoid Frank Mir was before Brock Lesnar made his face into an incomplete cherry pie was dead. Dude was resurrected as some 265lb megalodon that still had beef with Brock Lesnar. Here’s what he told Cagewriter this week.
“If (Brock Lesnar) is going to be out for that long, should he even hold on to the belt at all? The interim title works if a champion is not able to defend his belt within a year-long period, you know he’s going to be out eight, nine months, you make the interim belt than he comes back after a year but as of now his last fight was in July. If he’s out a year from today’s date that’s a year and a half and at that point, I don’t think you can hold the belt ransom. They gave me about a year when I had my injury so I’ve been on that side of the coin and I was more than happy to relinquish the belt because I felt kind of selfish that I really couldn’t do anything with it. I don’t how successful he’s going to be coming back. That’s going to be a question over his head for a while. It wasn’t like he was a slick, technical fighter to begin with. A lot of his style went upon his brute power and strength. If Brock Lesnar is unable to put on the same kind of size as he had before … I don’t think he’s going to be very successful as a fighter at 245.”
I’m not sure what demons haunt Frank Mir, but whatever they are…they have to be better than the ones in that ‘Paranormal Activity‘ movie. I watched it because the people in the commercial were jumping out of their seats in the movie theater. Paranormal Activity just made me realize people in commercials that jump out of their seats are idiots. [Source]
