Mir Plans To Strike With Kongo, Thinks Fedor Is Ducking The UFC

In this radio interview with Dave Farra, Frank Mir talks about Brock Lesnar and his post-fight antics immediately following their fight at UFC 100. He says he can’t remember what Brock said to him, but he plans to shut him up in a rubber match.

Mir’s next opponent will be Cheick Kongo at UFC 107. Frank says he has better hands than Kongo and plans to strike with him.

With hands I think I have an advantage, obviously he’s good with kicks and knees…As long as we’re boxing with each other, I feel very comfortable with Cheick Kongo. Obviously, I don’t want to eat one of his knees, so I probably will strike with him a lot, because if I just try to dive at him there’s always the chance of taking one of those.

We’ll see how that works out for him.

Moving on, Frank also touched on Fedor Emelianenko. He thinks Brock Lesnar would beat him in a cage, but Fedor may have a chance if they fought in a ring. He also says Fedor is ducking top competition in the UFC.
