Frank Mir wants Brendan Schaub next, calls fight with Brock Lesnar irrelevantPosted on November 10, 2010, 09:27 AM by Daniel Cassidy
"(A fight against Brock Lesnar) Honestly right now, probably no. Just because the (Shane) Carwin fight, (Lesnar) didn't look all that spectacular. I think a lot of people might have thought that he lost that fight. And then the (Cain) Velasquez fight obviously, Velasquez made (Brock) basically shout 'Stop, Enough, Enough' before he tapped due to strikes and that looked really bad."
"Right now I’m coming a win off of Mirko (Cro Cop), I would maybe like to see me get another win and (Brock) himself redeem himself, so that way it's more relevant to the division. Not just having the third fight for the sake of having the third fight. But having it to where it actually has some substance so that whoever wins will position themselves for a title shot. I think it has a lot more meaning that way."
"Roy Nelson is coming off a loss right now, but Brendan Schaub looked very good against Gabriel Gonzaga. That would be a fight, as far as trying to move forward to solidify myself for a title shot."
Never one to hold his tongue, Former Heavyweight Champion Frank Mir offers his thoughts on Brock Lesnar's recent loss. Mir it seems is against a possible rubber match with Brock, at least for now. Lesnar himself also recently claimed to have turned down a possible third fight with his nemesis. Both fighters are on level terms, with Mir forcing Lesnar to tap out at UFC 81, and Brock taking his revenge in a TKO win at UFC 100. Mir is currently 5-2 is his last 7, losing only to Brock and Shane Carwin.
As Mir looks towards his next fight, it would appear he has his sights set on upcoming Heavyweight and TUF 10 runner up, Brendan Schaub. Schaub also recently expressed a desire to face Mir, and it would appear both could be about to get their wish.
What do you think, LowKick'ers? Who will Mir Fight next? Who will Lesnar face off against? And do you want to see the long awaited rubber match between the two?
