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?

And on the flipside 90% of UFC fighters admit Fedor is #1 go figure..

He's a good fighter Mir and I like him, but he would get so smashed by Fedor it's not even funny.

Mir's only two wins of note were over a very inexperienced Lesnar and a staph infected Nog. How he can make these claims about Fedor is just

Mir is very talented, he crushed Nog and you know where to stick your excuses. Him beatng Congo is easy money and he speaks intelligently. He is good for the sport and for UFC. People must dislike him because he is not some douche like Forrest who has fan base with IQs in the 50s.

I don't blame Mir for saying what he does, he has a questionable ranking in the divison and comments like these will help sway the uneducated skeptic that he is the real deal.

I like Mir but he has already had to eat his words once with Brock, you think he would have learnt a lesson by now.

Unless Mir is ready to retire he still needs to make money. Read between the lines...it's call (self) promotion.

Really, if you don't think you can beat everyone in your division then what are you doing in the sport?

Sure, Mir is a bit of a knob, but he is doing what a fighter should do...try and get the best fights possible. It wouldn't give Mir much street cred if he called out Ben 'I Block With My Face' Rothwell, now would it.

Im sick of the staph infection excuse, ok fine Nog said he was fine for the fight but it messed up his training for the fight, so if Mir had decisioned him or taken him out late or it had been a competitive fight fine, but people use it to take away any credit Frank gets for destroying Nog and doing what nobody previous to that including Fedor was able to put Nog away.
