Quoteworthy:

"If (Brock Lesnar) is going to be out for that long, should he even hold on to the belt at all? The interim title works if a champion is not able to defend his belt within a year-long period, you know he's going to be out eight, nine months, you make the interim belt than he comes back after a year but as of now his last fight was in July. If he's out a year from today's date that's a year and a half and at that point, I don't think you can hold the belt ransom. They gave me about a year when I had my injury so I've been on that side of the coin and I was more than happy to relinquish the belt because I felt kind of selfish that I really couldn't do anything with it. I don't how successful he's going to be coming back. That's going to be a question over his head for a while. It wasn't like he was a slick, technical fighter to begin with. A lot of his style went upon his brute power and strength. If Brock Lesnar is unable to put on the same kind of size as he had before ... I don't think he's going to be very successful as a fighter at 245."

Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Frank Mir understands the difficulty in trying to come back from a devastating physical impairment as he talks about the slow road to recovery for the ailing Brock Lesnar. Mir was stripped of his division crown after 14 months on the sidelines thanks to a motorcycle accident that shattered his leg and tore the ligaments in his knee. There is also the question of how well Lesnar will be able to rebuild his mass after having intestinal trouble in a weight class that gets bigger by the month. Should Lesnar turn in his belt? Or will we see him much sooner than everyone thinks?
