Video: Georges St. Pierre and Frank Mir Talk UFC 111 on SportsCenter


(Video courtesy of ESPN.com)

You want to know how focused Georges St. Pierre is for his fight with Dan Hardy at UFC 111? Not only is he not even considering the possibility of a life that continues beyond this Saturday night, he hasn’t even bothered to pay attention to the passage of time.  He still thinks it’s January.  God knows what year he might believe we’re living in.  Doesn’t matter.  He’s only thinking about finishing Hardy and making it a "clean" victory.  Whether they’re fighting for gasoline and life credits in some futuristic hellscape, or whether they’ve traveled back to a time when Hardy’s post-fight wounds will be treated by a series of magic spells — the point is, GSP doesn’t care.  All he knows is he’s got a job to do on Saturday, playa.  Wouldn’t want to be Hardy right now, sitting around his hotel room and looking at the calendar like some chump.

After the jump, Frank Mir talks about Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin (who ESPN lists as 6’5"), and can’t help but get that old smirk on his face when the death threat comments get brought up.

I know you put that little bit in there about espn listing Carwin at 6'5" to try and bait me into saying something about his height again but I'm not falling for.....SEE THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT! EVERYWHERE I LOOK THE GUY HAS A DIFFERENT HEIGHT. I'M NOT SAYING HE'S THE ONE DOING IT, BUT GOOD LORD, YOU WOULD THINK THAT SINCE IT'S ONE OF 3 PHYSICAL MEASUREMENTS THAT WE USE TO DESCRIBE A FIGHTER WE COULD DO BETTER THAN A MARGIN OF ERROR OF +/- 3 INCHES!!! THIS ISN'T A GALLUP POLL! HOW USEFUL WOULD THE REACH STATISTIC BE IF ONE DAY GSP CAME IN WITH A 75" REACH AND THE NEXT FIGHT HE HAD A 70" INCH REACH?

on that note, am I the only one that thinks the reach statistic is the most misleading stat that MMA and Boxing use? First off, our bodies are divided into two equal hemispheres, so anytime Goldie says that so and so has a six inch reach advantage, those six inches are divided equally on both sides. This means that until a fighter walks into the ring with both arms on one side of his body (and one of those arms beginning where the first one ends) a six inch advantage is actually a 3 inch advantage. Even that doesn't tell the full story, since reach is measured with your fingers extended and punches are thrown with fingers tucked. A person whose middle finger, from knuckle to tip, is, let's say, half an inch longer than someone else's, would appear to have a 1 inch reach advantage that wasn't actually an advantage at all (unless that person is Kevin Burns).

THE END

Not to be a GSP nuthugger, but give him a break; this is probably his 60th interview this week, so what he screws up the date?... Oh, who am I kidding, his left nut is the snugglier one.

Before i watched the video of Mir, and whe i read that the death threat was going to be talked about in the interview " Tell us how you really feel" was the first thing i thought he would say. Mir is such douche cant wait to see him get KTFO this is the first UFC i'm paying for(in 3 years) just the see it in HD.


WAR CARWIN!!!!!!!!

Props to the interviewer who was respectful and professional despite the fact I've never seen him before. What a mainstream reporter who can treat MMA as a credible, respectable sport and not as a freakshow or cockfight?! What is the world coming to?! Put him on TV more.

(Oh John Anik doesn't count :P ... he's always been good but i don't think a webshow, as good as it may be, counts as mainstream)
ghostboner- March 25, 2010 at 11:12 pm
Don't you worry Frank, Brock will come to frutation. And when he frutates, you can fight him. Frutation means pooping normal, as in with a functioning intestine and colon and what not, right? Ah well, either way If anyone gets frutationey with Mir he can always just shoot/stab them.

GSP's Über Focus FTMFW!
frndlylion- March 25, 2010 at 10:43 pm
I think Mir showed some class an definitely does not sound like he is taking Carwin lightly. Nor should he.

It doesn't matter that anyone likes or dislikes GSP, face it, it doesn't matter: he still gets laid more than all of us, and he still wins fights, and will win this one.
He is the man, make fun of his accent all you want, or nuthug him all you want, its academic.

HAHA....some of the funniest posts I've ever read! Thanks for the laugh guys!

@Bigslick,

Way to swath the stereotype across a whole nation douche, I am American, proud of it, and think GSP is a legend in his own time.
Unabomberman- March 25, 2010 at 8:30 pm
@Bigslick:

People make fun of him b/c he's funny, and b/c they like him. Things aren't exactly "nominal" in this site, you know.
Bigslick- March 25, 2010 at 7:42 pm
Georges by staredown... all you Americans hate Georges because he is French or Canadian. He is a phenomenal fighter and has avenged both his losses to Serra and Hughes. So don't bitch and complain saying he isn't good or he can't do interviews. We all know he can't and he knows he can't but he represents Canada well.

GSP thinks is January for gods sake he should not get a license for this fight..he must have gotten hit so hard in training it knocked him back 2 months

montanamonster- March 25, 2010 at 3:45 pm
I am still trying hard to dislike Frank Mir, but he is a pretty good jabroni.
Merlin- March 25, 2010 at 3:31 pm
A aaa .... I aaa .... GSP.... ummmm "ee an't andle my riddum" .... atelete aaa ....
Nice interview George
1st
Unabomberman- March 25, 2010 at 3:30 pm
Mir should become a politician.

REP: (After the death comments) Tell us how you feel Frank.

FRANK CASTLE: Carwin is a credible opponent.

Good job, Frankie.
Tai-Pan- March 25, 2010 at 3:30 pm
Well to have that cut re-opened he either needs to be fighting Jon Jones or be GnP'd - neither will happen saturday night.

French Canada is the best Canada in da land. Nah just kidding, but your awesome anyway GSP.
Harry Nips- March 25, 2010 at 3:23 pm
That cut on the top of GSP's forehead looks like it can be easily opened up again w/ a well placed elbow. I'm really hoping this fight don't end by dr. stoppage.
