Frank Mir Injured, Out of UFC 98 Title Unification Match With Brock Lesnar

Brock Lesnar Frank Mir UFC MMA
(Well, it didn’t really look like these two BFFs wanted to fight anyway.)

FiveOuncesofPain breaks it:

A planned rematch between Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir for UFC 98 on May 23 that would have unified Lesnar’s UFC heavyweight title and Mir’s interim UFC heavyweight title has been canceled. Multiple sources have confirmed to that the UFC was recently informed by Mir’s camp that he has been unable to train recently due to a back injury that could require surgery.
There is no word as to whether Lesnar will remain on the card against a new opponent or if he will be taken off the card entirely. The UFC had just officially announced Lesnar vs. Mir II via its website earlier this week.

A follow-up report by MMA Mania called it a knee injury, not a back injury, but the situation remains the same — UFC 98′s headlining bout has gone from Lesnar vs. Mir to Hughes vs. Serra. Unless, of course, the UFC throws in a replacement for Mir. (The winner of Gonzaga/Carwin, anybody?) But with the rivalry and dual titles that Lesnar and Mir have accumulated in the last year, it’s hard to imagine that the UFC would risk giving Lesnar a loss and killing the heat behind the matchup. Stay tuned…

"Fighting injured" vs. "debilitating injury requiring surgery and cutting your training camp in half" are two different things. Who knows what's going on with Frank Mir? I can tell you who doesn't. ALL OF US.

Before you dipshits naturally assume that this dude is chickening out, get into a fight a few days after knee surgery and see how manly you feel getting your shit pushed in by someone you could beat at fighting condition.

When the dust settles, ultimately Shane Carwin will rule the heavyweight division until he gets bored and moves on.

That beast is more dangerous than a chimp on Paxil. He's lethal enough to capture the belt while he's still just learning his craft. As he improves... well, Benz... make room for another name on your MMA Hall of Fame shirt!!!

There's always golf, Brock.

Looks like Lesnar is going to have time to touch up the cock sword.

In other news, the incredibly delusional former DREAM Middleweight Grand Prix Winner turned heavyweight lardass Gegard Mousasi signs a three fight deal with the UFC - Dana White already hyping Mousasi v. Lesnar as the biggest fight since Penn tried punched above his weight.

mir: "hey broseph, im digging the **** on your chest, im thinking about getting one tattooed on my butt in celebration of our next matchup."

Fuck you, you fucking keyboard warrior. EVERY fighter sustains injuries. They are part of the game. Fat fucks like you that jack off all day to pics of tranny porn don't have a fucking clue.

HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHhahahahahahahha aha aha hahahahahahhahahah ahahahahahah ahahahahahahha aaa ha ahhaa ha

That's funny, yea, good joke. See, I know your joking and not serious because you understand that months of "submission defense" training < years of world class BJJ.

Why don't they just have that mark Coleman fight they originally had, it doesn't have to be for the belt, or even Cro Cop

I can't imagine Carwin not being the HW champ within the next year. He's a fucked up herb.

Wow big surprise there, another one chickened out.. Can't believe this bullshit, honestly which decent MMA fighter is 100% injury free every match? That's right.. NO ONE! Frank DAPUSSY Mir get in the cage you wanker!

Nothing stupid about what I said, and if your mom still did anal porn I would not have to spank to ol' Brockee poo. I just tire of the Kimbo/Lesnar comparisons. For the record I was pulling for Handy's old ass when Brock won the title. As for Lesnar Mir 1, you know damn well Mir was being thrashed until the point deduction. No warning, just one point gone for an inadvertant blow to the back of the head. And go get a fucking screen name you soppy twat.

Damn it, this just means that Lesnar is going to have the belt even longer. This is a big dissapointment to me and I'm sure many other mma fans. I would love to see the winner of Gonzaga/Carwin jump in there if the winner is not to beat up after tommorow. I think that either one of them would have no trouble against Lesnar. To all of you fags sucking Lesnars cock (tattoo or otherwise) please go back to watching wwe and gay porn.

Fedor is a nobody fighting in nobody feds, against nobodys and hasbeens. Pretty soon they will run out of heavyweights, and you will get to see fedor fight em all again before the end of the year. Not enough fighters to go around. UFC is where its at, Fedor wants to be the best and all you goofy fucking fedor blowjob artists want him to be the best then his goofy russian ass needs to be in the UFC.
Anything else is shit.

Frank Mir is right now the fighter that won the most belts in the UFC.

He had the UFC HW belt, the UFC HW "I'm the champion but I'm out for a while" belt. Then the UFC HW interim belt. And now, he just earned the UFC HW "coming back soon interim champion" belt.

4 belts. Not saying but take that, BJ and Randy.

Damn, just bought tickets yesterday. Better be a worthy replacement fight or fighter.
ample- March 6, 2009 at 5:19 pm
Let me clarify...Fedor would CRUSH Brock...all those other's i mentioned merely pose threats....let that me known

Cheick not impressed

Focus on getting better fighters like Fedor, his brother, and Josh Barnett, then I'll buy your shitty UFC production with "the ALWAYS yelling/annoying" Joe Rogan and the always impressive 1 liner, Mike "it's all over" Goldberg. We fucking know it's over, Doucheberg, we know...

No way on earth Lesnar's learned submission defense well enough in a year to stave off a black belt in BJJ. As for Mir vs Lesnar II... it'll still happen, just later than sooner.

As for a replacement, take Kongo off the April card or the winner of Gonzaga/Carwin. There's no other hw that really deserves a shot at the title based on running track record. Just for thrills and giggles, they could sign Butterbean up for a one-off fight. He wouldn't win, but he'd try to make it a show. Too bad Lashley signed elsewhere.

Fedor's a distant dream, barring any unforeseen miracles. Semmy Shilt's a big f*ck*r too, but I think he's commiteed to prior obligations to other organizations.

Lol, I think Tank Abbott's schedule's free, and he works real cheap. Even if he got killed in action, it wouldn't matter. To anyone. Anywhere.
