The trash talk may continue, but now Frank Mir has finally stepped up and made a formal apology to Brock Lesnar, his family and his MMA fan base. Mir had stated in an interview that he wanted to break Brock Lesnar’s neck because he hates him as a person, which caused a huge scene within the MMA community.
UFC President Dana White was very upset with the words coming out of the two-time former UFC heavyweight champion. White spoke to Mir regarding this situation and here’s what he had to say…
From Frank Mir:
“I would like to apologize to Brock Lesnar, his family, the UFC and the UFC fans for my stupid remarks…I respect Brock, all the other fighters, and the sport of mixed martial arts. I’m sorry that I stepped out of line.”
From UFC President Dana White:
“I was disappointed by Frank Mir’s comments…Frank’s been with the UFC a long time, he’s a two-time heavyweight champion and a commentator for the WEC. I think his emotions are running high right now, he has a big fight coming up next month and he’s still upset about his loss to Lesnar. He’s been talked to, he regrets what he said, and he won’t be saying anything like that again.”
