Frank Mir would like to "test himself" against Alistair OvereemPosted on August 29, 2011, 03:53 PM by Joey Santosus
Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Frank Mir, who was last seen taking a unanimous decision victory over Roy Nelson at UFC 130, discusses rumors of a rubber match between he and Brock Lesnar, as well as the UFC's potential signing of Alistair Overeem. Mir says he is open to a third encounter with Lesnar, but admits that he'd prefer to face Overeem if the Dutchman does, in fact, sign-on with the promotion. Photo: Francis Specker
"If (a rubber match with Lesnar) works out, it works out. I just want to fight again, it doesn't matter who... (Fighting) Alistair Overeem would be pretty cool, if he actually came over. I think that he's a great fighter, I think he's done a lot in this sport - his K-1 accomplishments. I think he's an immediate threat to come over and I'd like to test myself against him."
