Former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir can’t get Brock Lesnar out of his mind. Mir recently stated that he’s looking to end the career of the former WWE star, who defeated him at UFC 100 by TKO in the second round of their fight.
“Really, it’s what I think about all the time,” Mir admitted to Fighters Only. “Brock Lesnar exploited a huge weakness in my game and no matter who I crush after this, I have to crush him to show I’ve improved that weakness.”
Mir went on to say that he wants to fix the holes in his game and find redemption.
“Honestly, I just want to fix what was exploited,” he explained. “If you’re a true martial artist you don’t do it for money or titles, just to be the best human being possible, and if someone exploits a weakness, who better to see if you’ve fixed it than the guy who exploited it.”
As for regaining the heavyweight title, Mir says the title takes a backseat to getting his hands on Lesnar.
“Getting the title back, it’s a nice novel idea, but even being the heavyweight champ or the interim champ, I got to be honest, I didn’t really feel that different walking around,” he admitted. “Some people think that with the belt, that you made it. Nah, you didn’t make shit. You won a fight, just the fight happened to have more ribbon and bells and whistles on it. Bottom line, [its about] testing yourself!”
Before a rematch with Lesnar can take place, Mir faces Cheick Kongo at UFC 107, taking place on December 12, 2009 from Memphis, Tennessee. Other bouts scheduled for the event include B.J. Penn defending his UFC lightweight championship against Diego Sanchez, and Kenny Florian facing Clay Guida.
