In Frank Mir’s official website, his recent blog entry talks about his upcoming bout with Brock Lesnar. He seems happy that Dana White and the UFC gave him this bout and looks forward to fighting "an excellent athlete" with "an unbelievable collegiate career where he simply dominated."
Here’s the blog entry by Frank Mir:
Hey thanks so much for your interest in keeping in touch.
you can see or have heard I have signed to fight Brock Lesnar on Feb
2nd for the UFC. I am really looking forward to this fight and would
like to first thank Joe Silva and Dana White and Lorenzo Fertita for
offering me this fight and making it happen. I have fought for the UFC
for years and consider it my home. They provide me with opportunities
of a lifetime over and over again.
I would also like to thank
Brock Lesnar for signing on for the fight. My roots are in Karate then
Wrestling then Brazilian Jiu Jitsu so I have huge respect for
wrestlers. Top wrestlers have a work ethic that is second to none.
Brock is an excellent athlete and had an unbelievable collegiate career
where he simply dominated. I am looking forward to the challenge.
was hoping that I would be offered a fight on the Super Bowl Card since
it is a huge event and takes place in Las Vegas. I love fighting at
home in front of the people that I know and in front of the fans in Las
Vegas. The electricity in the event center is outrageous at the UFC
fights where ever they are in the world and especially wild in Las
Vegas. There is something about this town that makes people go nuts.
I will be working on my ground game, stand up, and conditioning for this fight.
opponent is an outstanding athlete so I will have to be prepared for
anything and everything. It’s MMA. Anything can happen and often times
things happen fast so proper preparation is a must.
I will keep up to date on a regular basis.
All the best.
