Mir talks to ESPN 1100/98.9 FM's "MMA Insiders" show (via Yahoo Sports):

"We don't have the type of depth that the other weight classes have and I think it's only a benefit to move them (Strikeforce heavyweights) over to us. I guess I have a bad taste in my mouth because of what happened when I first started my career. I had to always hear about, 'Oh, you guys are good, but the PRIDE guys would kick your butt.' There is no comparison and then that frustration of not being able to get to them. And then when Nogueira came over and Mirko, ( I ) got a hold of them. 'Yeah, but there is still Fedor.' I don't want to hear that. I want to know that anybody that is in the division, it's like if you think you can beat me, 'Hey Joe Silva, is he clear?' Okay, cool, let's fight. Now we can solve it you know? That whole unattainable thing just drives me insane."

'Bigfoot' Silva v Stefan Struve would be pretty cool.

I'd like to see Mir fight Antonia Silva that would be a good first match for Bigfoot.

Actually I'd like to see Mir against any of them, Cormier would be a cool fight to watch. I'd pick against Mir there though
