Frank Mir is one of MMA’s biggest legends. The man was once at the top of the UFC’s heavyweight division and had the entire world at his feet. However, a tragic motorcycle accident soon changed everything for the American Brazilian Jiu Jitsu expert. He later gained mainstream popularity when he defeated former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar in his first fight inside the octagon. Mir soon became Lesnar’s fiercest rival and the duo again fought each other at UFC 100. Mir is now scheduled to face arguably the greatest heavyweight of all time, Fedor Emelianenko in his next fight. In a recent press conference, he claimed that Lesnar might be a huge pay-per-view draw but does not come close to Emelianenko’s ability as a fighter.

Frank Mir is Brock Lesnar’s fiercest rival!

Mir was recently a part of a press conference to promote his upcoming Bellator MMA fight against the Russian. In the interview, he made the following comments about Lesnar and Emelianenko. Here’s what he had to say:

I get asked questions about (Brock Lesnar) as much as I get asked questions about Fedor, and me and Brock probably aren’t fighting any time soon.

As far as contributions to the sport, being a well rounded fighter, martial arts ability, Brock is not there, obviously, (He’s) nowhere near the psychological toughness and strategist that Fedor is. As far as to hardcore fans, I think this is a more important fight with Fedor.

As far as the marketing purposes, Brock is the powerhouse, he could be 80 years old and say he’s going to go sit on a toilet and people are going to buy tickets.

Pro wrestling just has its own fanbase that’s unreal, that I still can’t wrap my head around, but let’s be realistic: If Batista said he was fighting, he’d be a main event fight and selling a ton of pay-per-views. They have that draw.

But we know, I think as martial artists and fans, that no one there holds a candle to Fedor’s accomplishments.
