UFC Quick Quote: Shane Carwin won't be listening to Frank Mir talk

Mir-carwin3_medium

"I really haven’t thought much about it, but if Frank wants to take this fight in that direction, then that’s what will happen. Some fighters need to talk and do things like that. I respect Frank as a fighter and all that and if people want to see a great fight all they have to do is tune in; they don’t need the talk. I don’t really pay any attention to any of that. My focus is to go in there and fight. As soon as that cage door closes, I’m ready to fight and that’s what I love to do. I’m expecting a war. Mir is a former champion at the top of his game, I’m excited for it, and my prediction is a knockout; I don’t even know what round, I just want to go in there and throw some leather."

UFC heavyweight bruiser Shane Carwin tells the gang at Tapology that he's not interested in trading barbs with UFC 111 opponent Frank Mir prior to their March 27 showdown at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. Mir is known for his pre-fight trash talk and "The Engineer" is not going to going to start slinging mud, just leather. Mir is predicting a knockout, but will he side of the KO will he be on?
