UFC Quick Quote: Is Frank Murr scurred to fight Brock Lesnar?

"I'm a little disappointed that [the fight against Frank Mir] got pushed back. In my mind ... is Frank really hurt or is he just scared"... He won a make-believe belt from [Antonio Rodrigo "Minotauro"] Nogueira. He is a former champion. But there's no ifs, ands or buts about it -- I'm the current champion."

"The way my leg feels now, in hindsight, I could have made May 23."

-- UFC champions Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir sound off about the knee injury to Frank Mir, which delayed their title unification bout at UFC 98 on May 23. The giants are now set to collide at UFC 100 on July 11. Lesnar questions whether or not Mir, who defeated Lesnar via first round submission in their first encounter, was serious enough to postpone the match. Simultaneously, Mir admits that he probably could have been ready to compete next month. This could be chalked up to being "better safe than sorry" rather than Mir being scurred. But I guess we'll see on fight night when it all plays out once and for all.
