Frank Mir Gets a Stern Talking To, Apologizes to Brock Lesnar

Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir UFC
(‘And that stuff about your mother? Man, I downloaded those jokes off the internet. I’ve never even seen a picture of your mom, but I’m sure she’s a really nice lady who totally doesn’t have sex for money. At least not, you know, in a direct exchange.’

In case you haven’t heard, Frank Mir got himself into hot water recently when he went slightly out of his mind and said that he would like to kill Brock Lesnar in the Octagon. That might not sound like a big deal at first, but the problem is that he didn’t say it in the ‘Dude, you’re totally dead’ kind of way that B.J. Penn did. He said it in the extremely detailed and very literal way, as in, “I want to break [Lesnar’s] neck in the ring. I want him to be the first person that dies to Octagon-related injuries."

Yeah, you can see why that might be a problem for the organization trying to get regulated as a legitimate, non-lethal sport. Today the UFC issued a statement on its website that included a quote from Dana White, who said he was “disappointed” with Mir’s comments, adding:

“He’s been talked to, he regrets what he said, and he won’t be saying anything like that again.”

Naturally, Mir himself also had to make nice:

“I would like to apologize to Brock Lesnar, his family, the UFC and the UFC fans for my stupid remarks,” said Mir. “I respect Brock, all the other fighters, and the sport of mixed martial arts. I’m sorry that I stepped out of line.”

On the apology sincerity-o-meter, this one rates somewhere ahead of Lesnar’s Bud Light apology after UFC 100 and just behind Jimmy Swaggart’s ‘I have sinned’ speech. It strikes one as the kind of thing you say mostly because your boss makes you and partly because you realize it was a bad PR move. It does not seem like the apology of a man who has stopped hating Brock Lesnar with a fiery passion, but what did you really expect?  All I know is that if Lesnar turns up dead in the bathtub next week, Mir had better have a really solid alibi.

What happened to Brock, I haven't seen him years. The days of the WWE/ UFC champ need to make a comeback. Also check out desks for bedrooms
for great information on desks for your home.

I think Frank Mir is a Idiot, he probably thinks by saying things about Brock, he is going to scare Brock, or make him Doubt his ability to kick Frank's Ass.. All Frank is doing is Pissing Brock off.. If Mir, by Luck makes it through Carwin, Lesnar is going to give him another Beating, Probably worse than last time.. So my advice to Mir, is keep your mouth shut about Beating or Killing Brock.... Frank needs to Respect, Fear and pray to God that he never has to face lesnar again, Because if he does, it wont end good for Mir, and Will Probably end Like the last time.. With Mir's Daddy Screaming, Stop it !!!! To Lesnar, when Lesnar had his little boy Frank down beating his ASS !!!!!

Can anyone in this thread express himself without using the word fuck or hating a fighter?
cecils_pupils- February 24, 2010 at 10:57 am
Give it some time, gentlemen, and all we will be talking about is Carwin, Velasquez, Dos Santos, and Duffee. 'Nuf said.

fuck that, lets see spider vs lesnar.....spider wins by ko in 1:00

@kerouac - you are very right. I didn't think this needed to even be talked about. Fedor's got some HEAVY hands, and unlike Lesnar, he knows how to use them. If Lesnar thinks he can pin him to the ground, he needs to watch a Fedor highlight reel and watch him puddy his way into some ridiculous arm-bars.
AkilleeZ- February 24, 2010 at 8:56 am
I want to see Valasquez come in and kick both these D-bag's asses.
kerouac- February 24, 2010 at 8:55 am
Fedor vs Lesnar? Fedor destroys Lesnar - i think thats just common sense at this point right? Or am i wrong? POTATO-NATION SPEAK!!
howardsternspenis- February 24, 2010 at 8:46 am
my statements stand. brock lesnar is a fuckhole. fuck him and his phallic dick with brass knuckles.. hes only had 5 fights....5....im willing to bet that soon he will get fucking housed and when he does ill be there cheering on anyone who does it. i fucking hate that motherfucker with a burning passion. no matter what he does in the sport i will always look at him as a fucking mutant retard freak with horrible horrible tattoos. hes a chump, a very big retarded chump. fedor vs lesnar anyone??

Dude what the hell difference does it make what makes one person better at something than someone else. If this were a BJJ contest I'm sure Mir would fucking school Brock and if this where a wrestling match it would be the other way around, but this is MMA and clearly whatever it is that Brock does he does pretty well. Yeah I understand that Brock is huge but Jesus Christ, Mir and Herring aren't exactly small and he stood with Randy and still knocked him the fuck out. Not to mention the fact that Randy ( by far the smallest of Brocks opponents so far) actually took Brock down. I'm not saying that Brock can't be beaten because I believe he can. You just can't discredit what he's done because he's big.
howardsternspenis- February 24, 2010 at 8:05 am
^^ like i said, lesnar can only do the things he does cause he is a fucking mutant retard. he has no skill, only brute strength...granted its worked for him, but imo its a disgrace to anyone else in the sport who has trained for years and years to get where they are. wouldnt you be pissed if you worked your whole life for something, then some fuckbag genetic freak who no doubt was or is on roids comes along and gets a shot at the belt right away...

go back to suplexing other homos brock the cock....i fucking hate you
Birdman- February 24, 2010 at 7:55 am
Mir is a complete and total douche bag. He has talked more shit than I can even believe at this point. He can't stand the fact that he's been doing this shit his entire life and a guy like Brock can come along and in a very short period of time completely fucking own his ass. He along with the entire population of the planet, knows he got lucky the first time they fought. Then he goes out and talks so much shit about how fucking good he is and gets fucking wrecked the second time they fight. I guarantee you he gets fucking flogged again when the third fight happens. I really like Shane Carwin but I'm almost hopeing that he loses this fight just so I can see Brock decimate what's left of Frank Mir. WHAT AN ASSHOLE.
howardsternspenis- February 24, 2010 at 7:54 am
even though mir is kind of a tool himself, he doesnt even come close to lesnar. lesnar is the biggest, stupidest, most downs syndrome looking mutant to hit the sport. it pisses me off every time i see that stupid ass tattoo of the dick with brass knuckles on his pale ass retard chest....

if lesnar didnt have the strength of 10 men ( aka retard strength) he wouldnt be shit...
Smitty- February 24, 2010 at 7:29 am
Why are you dumb asses even mentioning Curtis Sample??? Give that guy the "Tito Ortiz" treatment on this site instead of swingin from his nut sack.
Defender- February 24, 2010 at 6:53 am
Frank ranks off the Douchebag-Meter here. If you actually read carefully what he said:

"Brock has no respect for the sport and as a role model to kids and others coming up in the sport...I have no respect for a guy like that"

And then he goes one to say he wants to kill Brock.

If you can in the same statement talk about kids, and murdering someone...you are fucktard.
ProfessorMMA- February 24, 2010 at 6:45 am
Mir is and always has been a fucking douche bag.. if anyone dies i hope its him.. i still like brock and hate that everyone disliked the guy before he ever set foot in an mma ring, based on the fact that he was a pro wrestler first.. who gives a fuck, the guy is a fucking animal, a beast, and atheletic specimen... oh well..

if brock tries to stand with cain he is done anyways.. brock better be working on those takedowns if he wants to take out cain.
sevvi- February 24, 2010 at 5:50 am
War Mir, although he was out of line i still hope he beats Brock into oblivion.
SumDumGuy- February 24, 2010 at 5:03 am
It seems to me that all context is (deliberately?) being lost. Even though he literally uttered the quoted remarks, I at least, didn’t take it to mean what it has been made into. It sounded more like intentional hyperbole to drive across a point; namely: that even though one might FEEL as extremely as the words spoken, most fighters would opt to say the politically correct thing (ironically, not very unlike the statement made after the apparent bollocking…). This inclination for transparent dishonesty is not becoming, was Mir’s point imo.

Now the real fun part is that in the new statement allegedly made by Frank, he doesn’t seem to miss even one key word: “respect”, “family”, “the sport” etc
DazedNConfused- February 23, 2010 at 11:03 pm
And that's after Gonzaga had Carwin on his ass like a little biiiznitch.
DazedNConfused- February 23, 2010 at 11:02 pm
After the Big Nog fight I would say Cains a bigger threat than Mir. Mir got assraped hard in that last Lesner bout. He hasn't changed that much to say it would be different now. Carwin as well. He hasn't really had any challanges. Gonzaga or what? pft.

Brock is going to pound yet another mudhole into Frank Mur the next time they're in the ring together.
Kimbos Bread- February 23, 2010 at 9:24 pm
It's only a question of time before Mir dresses up as Sable and sneaks into bed with Brock.
Jesus Frijoles- February 23, 2010 at 8:42 pm
Everyone always forgets what a complete douche Mir made of himself after the first Lesnar/Mir fight. He was getting hammer fisted to death when Mazzagati decided to show Lesnar who was boss and pulled him off of Mir. Mir got his shit together just long enough to catch Lesnar by the leg. Afterwords he sounded like he was the greatest thing since sliced bread instead of a lucky fucker. He trash talked and bad mouthed Lesnar into a complete hulksmash rage and got his ass handed to him on national TV. Now he spouts off this roid rage( you sure have got pumped up there Mir)crap. Last time you pissed off the Norwegian retard you got raped on tv, this time it might be you that gets killed Frank. Careful what you say.

1. Mir won't get past Carwin.

2. I really hate guys who make me have to consider a douchebag in a better light. No, Mir didn't do that with Lesnar, I don't hope Lesnar dies in the ring, but if it has to happen at some point... I really hate Lesnar because he made me root for Frank Mir, who is about as big a douche as a non-Lesnar MMA fighter can be. Same holds for Rampage. How colossal of a failure of a coach do you have to be to make Rashad look like the good guy? Answer: Rampage.
KidDinomite- February 23, 2010 at 8:14 pm
You know, I actually like Mir. He seems like a cool, intelligent guy and stuff. It seemed to me that he was more about martial arts as a whole than all the other guys who're just in it because they're fighters. The guys who're in it for the art like Machida, Anderson Silva, GSP, etc., don't ever talk about what physical harm they're gonna inflict on their opponents. They just go out there and train and look good come fight night and we all come away in awe cuz they made it look easy. I think more guys who want to be at the top should really take a look at these guys who walk around with a measure of inner peace and really take note of that because they have that air of invincibility that a lot of the lower tier guys don't possess. Could that be the key to a championship reign?
