Frank Mir appeared last night on MMA Live about his potentially replacing Alistair Overeem vs Junior Dos Santos if the Dutchman is unsuccessful in convincing the Nevada State Athletic Commission that his drug test results were not in violation, at a hearing on April 24.

"As of right now, I'm still training for Cain. Obviously, I'm like everybody else. I see that, in the background, there's a possibility Overeem's not going to be able to make the fight on the 26th, and if that's the case, I wanna make sure I'm in a position where I can jump in."

"I feel that I have the most credentials, going into it. I think I have the longest winning streak of the heavyweights that were already posted on that card to fight. As far as what the rankings are, I feel I have the most credentials going in, and I'm motivated to do so".

"Obviously I'd feel a little slighted (if someone else were picked to fight dos Santos). But, both those guys (Hunt and Velasquez) are great fighters. I would never be mad at them for taking advantage of the situation. Would I be angry? Of course. I wouldn't wanna be at my house on the night that's announced. I would not be a happy individual. I would probably just stay away from my house for a couple of days."

"(Fighting JDS as opposed ot Velasquez) is a little bit of an adjustment, but I'd rather go in that direction than the other way. Just for the reason being the kind of conditioning it takes. Wrestling in the gym as much as I am with the kind of guys that are more wrestling-oriented, collegiate wrestlers, that conditioning is just extremely anaerobic and extraordinarily tough to train for. Anybody who trains realizes that anybody can spar three, four, five, six rounds, if it's just striking with no takedowns. But maybe if you start taking people down and fighting on the ground and we wrestle to get back up, that's when it's extremely fatiguing. so, going from a grappler to have to prepare for a striker, I feel it's easier than the other way around."

"I'm very much on the point of 'innocent, until proven guilty.' If he has a hearing and he comes in and speaks, I wanna hear what he has to say and what's going on. All six of us were tested on that day, that were on that stage, and he had some complications with his test, obviously. Give the man a chance to speak about it."

Well said, considering his position and stake in all of this. Mir has always been well spoken when it comes to controversial issues and the media in general, at least since his accident.

Hmm sounds like someone wants nothing to do with Cain !
Isn't he on the same winning streak as hunt?

I think Mir is upset tat all the fans prefer to see hunt fight for the title rather than himself.

Just accept it franky and don't get rocked by any jabs on your way out!! Phone Post

Stupid post.
It doesn't sound at all like he doesn't want to fight Cain. It sounds like he wants the title. And saying all the fans want Mark Hunt? You need to get tho whole internet push for hunt out of your head. I would guarentee overall that more people would be interested in mir/JDS.

He would have a good reason to be pissed. I get that everyone likes Hunt and he would make for an exciting fight, but I haven't seen any logical as to why he would be more deserving of a shot than Mir. I get that people don't like Mir, but his fights are exciting and his wins are much better than Hunt's. Phone Post

Yep nothing to do with him.


That's why he signed the contract and is currently in training camp to fight him.

you're blowing it way out of proportion for hunt. a lot of people HERE like hunt. go ask 50 people that are relatively familiar with MMA? they'll not even know who he is.

He would have a good reason to be pissed, but I like how respectful he said it, and said Hunt and Cain are both great fighters so he wouldn't be mad at them.

Wait...you're telling me that a top fighter would rather fight for the title on short notice than fight an underrated former champion looking to make a statement?
Gosh, that's crazy.

Don't blame him. Sure Hunt is a nice guy and all but cmon. He doesnt deserve to be in the title fight. He knows it too right now.

How does Mir deserve it?

Dude wouldn't last 3 minutes with JDS.

Mir is like the HW version of Kenny Florian.

Top level gatekeeper but just won't be winning a title anytime soon.

People forget that Mir is counted out of damn near every fight he is in..he is NEVER expected to win...but does.

And yes he deserves a shot before Hunt, anyone saying otherwise is dumb. They have the same winning streak but the quality of opponents isn't close to being equal.

Would I love to see Hunt vs. JDS?...Fuck yeah, can't deny it would be a great fight, but Hunt doesn't deserve a shot over Mir...plain and simple.

Styles make fights
hunt v JDS will be heavyweight slugg fest cause hunt has the chin.
Which the average guy on the street would prefer.
I doubt Mir's gameplan would be the same . Phone Post
