The latest promo video on UFC.com has Frank Mir saying he's "let go of the idea of fighting Brock" after his fight with Shane Carwin.

How does he go from talking about having dreams of Brock at night and saying he has to fight Brock for the sake of his sanity to saying this?

Is this some kind of coping/defense mechanism in case he loses to Shane or some other sort of mind game he's playing?

He obviously doesn't mean that, so why do you guys think he's saying that now?

It's actually quite simple....he is lying! He def wants to murder Brock, Frank is smart enough to know that people may think he is counting Carwin out, including Carwin himself, which could piss Carwin off and land Mir in a situation against a guy thats super motivated...

Also god forbid he lose he doesnt want to listen to well you looked past Carwin for Brock....



He def wants Brock....

These guys are humans just like you and me. Theres no point hanging on shit they say in interviews because we have no idea of context. For all we know, Frank had the bestest blowjob ever the morning of this interview. Or had a huge row with his missus the day he made the "I want to kill Brock" comments.

There is no real truth can be gathered from watching little edited snippets of fighters making comments. You can speculate wildly, which is fun in itself, but come to conclusions? No way.

In this interview, Frank simply looks in a really good mood. Thats it.

I seriously doubt that his "nightmares" over the Brock beating are done. It's funny he says this so close to saying that's his waking motivation everyday. Hope he's in top form against Carwin.

Lesnar is going to hand him his foot on a silver platter again?

Mir was lucky he was fighting Lesnar in such a raw state. Even at that he was getting his ass kicked the whole fight until Lesnar made the mistake. It won't happen again.

Nightmares or wet dreams? Anyways, he's just lying to try to keep from having Carwin think that he's looking pass him. He knows that a motived, enraged Shane Carwin is someone that he doesn't want anything to do with. As soon as this fight is over, if he wins, he will stand there in the center of the octagon and call out Brock like it's going out of style.

if Shane Carwin needs somebody to look past him to get motivated for an interim championship fight he is in the wrong business.

enraged isnt the best way to fight for most guys anyways.

if you need motivation, its that belt, your dreams. its a living being trying to take everything you ever worked for away from you with one punch.

man i get motivated just thinking about it and i havent fought anybody in years.
