Mir has no intentions of leaving the UFC, has more to say about Fedor
Former UFC heavyweight champion, Frank Mir has revealed he would never look to leave the UFC for another promotion, especially when a rematch with Brock Lesnar could be in the offing, as well as having more to say about WAMMA heavyweight champ, Fedor Emelianenko.
Speaking to CageReport.net, Mir said:
“Not really, the UFC have been good to me over the years, I don’t see any reason for me to leave or go elsewhere. I want that rematch with Brock before I even think that far down the line.”
On the subject of WAMMA heavyweight champion, Fedor Emelianenko, Mir said:
“No disrespect to Rogers but other than Arlovski he hasn't really beaten anyone noteworthy. I don't see how beating a guy like that solidifies Fedor as being number one pound for pound. I would still rank guys like Anderson [Silva], Miguel Torres and St Pierre above Fedor as far as pound for pound rankings go. Do I think I could beat Fedor? of course, but now I'll never get the opportunity to prove it since [Fedor's] made it clear that he wants no part of facing real competition.”
The UFC will enter a period next year when the Russian will be looking to renegotiate his deal with Strikeforce as well as taking offer’s from other promotions as his current three fight contract draws to a close. Will the UFC finally get their man despite the personal attacks by President, Dana White or are we all destined to ask, what if?
