    yeah i hate mir …. he seems real cocky…. the best statement though, not trying to start a war, but what he said right at the end is so true

    I agree he's coming off more and more cocky, but his statement about waking up with something to prove is dead on, too bad fedor doesn't feel the same way

    I thought he was a an arse the way he came across in the Ultimate Fighter but in this interview to me he seems honest and makes alot of valid points.

    mir should try to avoid randy at all costs because randy would tool him around the cage and tko him in the second or third. i did like what he said about fedor aswell tho even tho if fedor ever comes to the ufc he will wish he never mentioned fedors name.

    Mir is so dumb. Fedor would destroy him in the first round. Fedor isn't ducking anyone and he would destroy the whole UFC heavyweight weight class. Brock would be no problem. He's got nothing to prove…..Strikeforce is better for him.

    i'll let someone else tear you apart for the comment posted above.

    We're all in agreement here. Mir's a douche….

    Off the topic, Couture signed a new 6 fight deal spanning over 28 months with the UFC, following his loss to Nog. at UFC 102…

    Damn, can't believe Randy's gonna fight another 6 fights. He'll damn near be 50 years old when the contract runs out. I think he should have hung up the gloves some time ago. But, Randy will probably die in the cage fighting before ever deciding to retire.

    i dout we will see 6 fights out of him, its just to make sure he retires a ufc fighter.i say he loses 1 or 2 more and calls it quits. i only say he loses because he will go after big name fights and not easy ones.

  11. zack

    September 1, 2009 at 6:50 am

    Agreed roy…I dont see Randy finishing the contract out. They will put him out there against an elite fighter to draw in viewers. I say he loses his next fight too, unless they put him up against a nobody, but I dont think the UFC will do that either.

    I'm not sure I agree with you Balendin. I think many fighters would pose a threat to Fedor. I don't doubt he is one of the best, but anyone could be a potential threat to anyone and there is top competition in the UFC.

    I must say though, Mir needs to get off his high horse. After seeing what Vera did to him, Anderson would drop him fast. There is also a difference between excuses and reasons. I think Nog had a good reason he was fighting like shit against Mir. Someone chopping off your arm 5 minutes before your fight would be a REASON to pull out of your fight, not an excuse.

    good point ryan on reason vs excuse

    Balendin, you're stupid. Not even you truly believe Strikeforce is better for Fedor! You're just tryin to be a bigger D-Bag than Mir by lying.

  16. Balendin

    Yea well who is going to beat Fedor in the UFC.

    Brock – hasn't fought very much

    Carwin – hasn't fought anyone good

    Nog – Already beat him

    God you people are so stupid. Nobody in the UFC is even in Fedor's league. He's better submission fighter than Nog….Better Striker than Anderson Silva and his Sambo is more effective than Coutures wrestling. Strikeforce is the place to be for him. He doesn't have to deal with Dana's shit that way and his legacy will grow even more.

    Brock and Carwin would both BeaT fEDOR DOWN…But who the fuck cares….We will never see Fedor fight any of the UFC elite guys because Fedor is a pussy bitch..so please lets stop saying he is the best, If he was really the best he would fucking fight in the UFC but instead he goes to strikeforce were there is No real Heavy weight fighters..

    boy is this guy stuck on his self or wat? frank is full of shit he needs to lay of the bugar sugar ! the comment about ufc having the best fighters is bullshit if pride had not shut down ufc would"nt have some of these great fighters.Great fighters come from all over the world and different mma divisions around the world so how can ufc have the best. Fedor dose"nt even pay no attintion to people like this. its not his style.One thing about Fedor, he never talks no shit neither dose Anderson,or NOG why ? because these guys came from some where else besides the ufc.I hope anderson kicks mirs ass if that fight ever happens. WELL I GOT TO GO THROW UP AFTER HEARING MIR RUN HIS MOUTH>

  20. hall

    September 1, 2009 at 1:31 pm

    TOM sounds like your full of shit to! I dont KNOW about you but I damn sure would"nt want to work under someone I dont like . If fedor ever went to ufc he would be a dumbass in my oppion. Dana talks all dat shit about Fedor but if he had Fedor and Fedor was to win the belt HE put Fedor up on a pedestal and then brag because he would have one of the greatest fighters in the world. Dana is all about his self just like Mir. AND TOM JUST SO YOU NO STRIKEFORCE HAS SOME GREAT HEAVYWEIGHTS.AT LEAST THEY WORK THEIR WAY FROM BOTTOM UP NOT LIKE PUSSY BROCK. BOBBY LASHLEY WOULD WOOP BROCKS ASS HA HA

    TOM YOU MAKE ME SICK TO

    Hey Tom answer me this when Fedor was in Pride beating everybody and They WERE the #1 organization as far as HW fighters go was he ducking the best then???? Barnett left the ufc as the HW champ went to pride an could never win the belt. Liddell went over to pride and couldnt win the belt. The point is Fedor has fought the best. Morons like you talk shit about him and say stuff like Carwin and Lesnar would smash him. LMFAO. Lesnar said when asked about Fedor if he would fight him and he said he is still new in the sport and needs a couple more fights. Thats his words lol. Carwin gets 1 decent win where he was lucky to have not got KOd and he is suddenly better than Fedor? Why b/c he has big muscles. You fucking wwe fans probally think the John Cena movies are real also. Give me a fucking break. Fedor is the all time HW king. Lesnar is 4-1. Carwin is 11-0. And I love how Mir said Forrest didnt get imbarrassed. Its b/c he knows what it is like to get fucking crushed. B. Vera and Marcio Cruz both fucked him up and imbarrassed him. Ask someone who will be real and they will say forrest got imbarassed thats why he ran out of the cage lol. I cant stand Mir thinking he could hurt randy. Big Nog was sick against him and I want to see him get smashed in the rematch like he did against lesnar.

    I don't think anyone is say that the ufc made these fighters, it's just where all the best end up. Everyone knows silva, nog, henderson, and others all started in pride and did well in ufc. A lot of 'em also did terribly in ufc. I think fedor missed out on a prime opportunity to join up w/the ufc right as it's building it's hw division up. He doesn't care though. He says he has nothing to prove, to me that sounds like "I don't wanna get hurt".

  24. steve

    September 1, 2009 at 1:58 pm

    Anybody can beat anybody on any given day when you are talking about the top fighters. If Carwin beats Lesnar then everyone will talk about him like he is a god and how lesnar is overrated which he is but thats not the point. Lets these guys after 10 fights in a top organization or in Lesnars case after 10 fights. Then try and compare him to fedor thats all im gonna say.

  25. hosan

    September 1, 2009 at 2:08 pm

    I personally don't compare any of ufcs hw division to fedor because he's a lot more experienced than most. I believe, however, that the ufc still holds the highest percentage of high caliber of fighter over any other mma affiliation currently in existence.

    Wow he holds no punches on this one. Even jabbed at me because I sit at home of the couch to watch these events. Whats wrong with that?

  27. T.R.

    September 1, 2009 at 2:54 pm

    please Nog get a rematch and knock this dude out.

  28. Balendin

    September 1, 2009 at 3:07 pm

    someone yet AGAIN posting under my name…..

    Mir is a douche i just hope someone knocks him out.

    Balendin and hall can both eat shit

  30. Balendin

    September 1, 2009 at 11:35 pm

    nice rep for the site there jake!

    but in all seriousness. few like Mir, and as i said…. someone is posting under my name.

  31. Rubs

    September 2, 2009 at 1:08 am

    Mir should've been better after loses like this but noooooo. For some apparent reason, he became douchier than ever. These are the kind of loses that will make you a better fighter but Mir isn't learning at all.

    p.s. Tom is also a douche

  32. rhetro

    September 2, 2009 at 4:26 am

    i dont like frank mir but i was impressed with some of the things he said in this interview and stickin up for the fighters.

    it's funny how a. silva was sayin he wanted to fight frank mir. because silva was sayin that he wouldnt fight lyoto and i was tellin peeps if it was his turn to fight for the lhw title and lyoto is still the champ he would have to. but if he still refused….dana should just tell him it's either lyoto or mir choose one or you're fired.

  33. fino

    September 2, 2009 at 5:04 am

    I don't get the negative coments regarding Mir. i don't think he said anything wrong. I think he is a stand up guy and a good representative of the UFC. Good job Frank.

    hall ur dumb dude lashley went to a decision with fatboy guida… hes much smaller than brock and has t-rex arms compared to brock. which one of lashleys fights against cans have made u think he could beat brock? Brock's huge and is proportionate lashley is muscle bound and has about hallf of brocks reach. brock would steamroll lashley. god ur dumb.

  35. dane drebin

    September 2, 2009 at 7:58 am

    not to mention brock cuts from 285 and lashley doesnt cut shit and is around 250.

    brocks wrestling accomplishents career> lashleys wrestling accomplishments

    brocks size> lashleys size

    brocks reach> lashleys reach

    brocks strength> lashleys stength

    brocks level of competition> lashleys level of comp

    Brock ufc heavyweight champion> lashley fighting in po dunk arkansas somewhere in a barn

    MORON

    All i am going to say is Lashley is taking the smart but long route to MMA staredom and while it may be feding him fighters he can easily beat, he is still new to the game and has had problems with his fights but the guy has all the talent in the world.

  37. dane drebin

    September 2, 2009 at 11:17 am

    but do u think he would beat brock?

  38. Mike

    September 2, 2009 at 11:23 am

    Fedor could beat them both!

  39. other derek

    September 2, 2009 at 11:28 am

    well then who's the idiot that said fedor is a better striker then silva?

  40. Fedor Emelianenko

    September 2, 2009 at 11:39 am

    Mike, thats enough speaky. Put my balls back in your mouth.

  41. Fedor Emelianenko

    September 2, 2009 at 11:41 am

    I can not be defeated. I am the real champion.

    Rocky 4 quotes..WTF, LOL…Pretty funny though. I love it when Drago says it in the movie.

    September 2, 2009 at 11:53 am

    Brock>Lashley

    Brock>Carwin

    Brock/Fedor – Don't know, but would love to see it.

  45. Balendin

    September 2, 2009 at 6:12 pm

    Dane you seem to be misunderstanding what cutting weight means.

    if Brock walks round with a BMI of 20% (thats seems about right) and Lashley walks round with a BMI of about 10% i fail to see how Brock cutting 20 lbs make a difference. (as Lashley would probably weigh about the same)

    reach? again….. sometimes smaller people beat bigger people.

    i don't think Lashley would beat Brock but i mean really…. don't just go off Size and Wrestling alone, Brock has a bad chin as i saw (again imho) with Mir's knee rocking him.

    Have fun going on a big losing streak Mir. He wants to fight the best the only thing is he cant beat them. Mir Vs Gonzaga please. Gonzaga will KO him.
