UFC Quick Quote: Frank Mir has no problem with ‘Interim’ label

Quote:
“I feel pretty satisfied that I’m the champ. The fact that Randy came back - really he should have waited for me and Nogueira to fight and then fought the winner of us to unify the belts. The fact that he left, the heavyweight belt was Nogueira’s. We were just waiting for the official title to be called the heavyweight belt. But obviously (Randy) came back and made it all kind of a mess. But Nogueira and Tim (Sylvia) fought for it and that created the real belt in my opinion. The fact that I beat Nogueira, who was top ranked, a top guy, it’s not like I took the belt from some paper champion, this guy was the real deal. The icing on the cake is Brock Lesnar, who has the other belt, I already beat him. Those were two champions and I’ve got a win over both of them. I feel pretty confident that I’m the champ. Other people [talk] about the interim thing, but I’ve got no problem with it. I’ll fight Brock again and we’ll fix this.”


– UFC Interim Heavyweight Champion Frank Mir (12-3) tells host Larry Pepe on MMAmania.com’s exclusive presentation of Pro MMA Radio that holding victories over former Interim Heavyweight Champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 92 and current UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar at UFC 81 is enough to recognize him as the the owner of the ‘real belt’. Mir and Lesnar are expected to unify the belts in a rematch sometime in late Spring of 2009. Will history repeat itself or will Lesnar score revenge in Act II?

I agree with him totally, i think when couture came back it was too late there was already a new champion. Nogueira was the real champ in my eyes, Randy didnt want to defend it against him so the belt was forfeited.

Yeah Mir's the champ. I'm not sure how anyone can argue that.

Brocks to explosive and powerfull for Mir to stand up with him the way he did against Nog. If he tries moving his head slightly to the side and looking for the uppercut against Brock he will eat a hard right hand for his troubles. Mir could definitly sub him again but I give the advantage standing to Brock.
