It's probably true. I wonder how many will tune in to Mir's fights to see him get hurt because they hate him now. $$!!

I really don't understand people taking offense to this. Unless you are Brock's family, who cares what he says. If Frank went in a actually killed him, it's not gonna ruin my day. Stop being babies and quit whining about what people say that doesn't really have any effect on your life.

And to those who are about to leave me negative feedback, you're the babies that I'm talking about and I hope you all die of internet related injuries.

Frank likes to talk trash, but he's just not good at it.

Saying that you plan to break someone's neck, making them the first person to die of octagon related injuries CANNOT be taken figuratively... Look up "murder" in the dictionary and there are many alternate definitions unrelated to actually taking someone's life.

Frank's a "smart" guy, I would've thought he could figure that out...

Actually he's very good at it, as evidenced by threads like these.

I'm not defending those who say they're going to kill their opponent, but we all know the intentions don't really make any difference. Punching someone as hard as you can on the chin causes the same effect, whatever that may be, regardless. They know this and just express a mental state, I think.

Penn goes in with the mentality that it's to the death, but he doesn't want GSP to die. But Mir's comment is about something he cannot really control. It's not about intentions or mental states, it's about what he wants the effect to be, i.e. death. It is different and can't really be brushed over as simple shit talking.

First, I really think Mir wanted to be the heroic fighter. Something like Couture's status. I remember how hurt he looked when he was in the audience at some ufc show, when the camera showed him and was faced with boos when he expected cheers.

Secondly, what are you doing here at this forum then?

His comment definitely was more literal than figurative which is likely why it offended people and the other comments just seemed like hype or trash talk. Also, Mir has broken bones of opponents in the Octagon before so it's not really an impossibility that he could really kill someone.

...I can't see how Lesnar isn't a distraction considering he and Mir have the biggest rivalry. Mir is at a loss for words. "I know I have to beat Carwin and really beat him to get that third match". That statement there says he still is looking past Carwin for the third match. With Shane's insane punching power combined with a good game plan from Yoda, Mir's only hope for beating Carwin is to submit him, (If he can keep him down)- Gonzaga is a big dude with a heavy top game including serious Jiu Jitsu and he couldn't hold Carwin down. If Mir dares to exchange with Shane, Mir will take an instant nap...

This whole situation is funny, and Mir is probably thinking ''Haha, I got the innanet' goin nuts!''

I'll probably laugh if Mir loses to Carwin and Lesnar steps in the cage to laugh.

Gotta love Frank, everyone seems to have forgotten he still has to win a fight before he gets Lesnar in a rubber match.

I will die in a fit of laughter if he gets KTFO by Carwin after all this.
