Frank Mir Quick Quote – “You Just Can’t Keep Being In Denial”

Frank Mir (13-5) on Brock Lesnar’s advantage in the octagon, size not skill is what made the difference.
“We all have our opinions and pre-conceived notions of how something should work based on past success or through learning from other individuals. And then when you walk into it, if you fail, you have to be intelligent […]

frank MirFrank Mir (13-5) on Brock Lesnar’s advantage in the octagon, size not skill is what made the difference.

“We all have our opinions and pre-conceived notions of how something should work based on past success or through learning from other individuals. And then when you walk into it, if you fail, you have to be intelligent enough to sit there and say ‘why did I fail?’ I think that any time you sit there and stick to your guns, going ‘well, on that night, this is what happened and it had nothing to do with something else,” that’s silly. I had to acknowledge that Brock’s size gave him an advantage that really nullified a lot of my technique. He didn’t have to have my level of technique, just a moderate amount, and then having good basics, along with his size, led him to be successful. So I have to learn from that and improve. There’s nothing shameful about it, it’s just one of those things where that’s part of being a scientist – you have a hypothesis, a theory, and you go out there and try it out. You stop being a scientist when you just start doing the same things over and over again and just try to find different ways of justifying why it’s not working. You can’t just keep being in denial.”

The former UFC heavyweight champ is set to headline UFC 119 against former PRIDE champ Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovi? on Sept. 25 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

How Ricardo Romero Turned a Terrible UFC Start into a Triumphant Ending

Moments after his Octagon debut at UFC 116, Ricardo Romero was back in the locker room of the MGM Grand washing the blood off his body and doing a little damage assessment.

He couldn’t close his jaw all the way, so he was pretty sure that was broken. When he tried to lift his arm a sharp pain shot through his chest, indicating that something was probably damaged in there. His knee was also starting to stiffen up, making even the act of standing in the shower seem increasingly dicey.

“I was just thinking, this is going to be a really fun trip back home,” Romero recalled with a chuckle.

Romero would leave Las Vegas after his first UFC fight with a broken jaw, torn pectoral muscle, and sprained knee. He also left a winner, which might be the most amazing part, especially considering what a horrible start he got off to against MMA veteran Seth Petruzelli that night.
