UFC Quick Quote: Frank Mir scraps light heavyweight plans in pursuit of Brock Lesnar

Dm_090711_mma_lesnar_mir_medium

"Brock's comments in his UFC interviews have inspired me to decide on holding off on going to 205, and working my way to fighting him again."

Tweet! Tweet! Win or lose, it sounds like Brock Lesnar has a rubber match with Frank Mir somewhere in his future. Lesnar avenged his submission loss to the Las Vegas grappler by smashing him to pieces at last year's UFC 100 event. Mir was one fight away from trying to take the best out of three until Shane Carwin put him to sleep at UFC 111 to usurp the Interim title and a shot at the division champ on July 3. Is Mir on a fool's errand? Or does the MMA fan base want a third and deciding fight?
