Nice Interview: He briefly touches on his situation with Bodog, elaborates on the fight offer with Jon Fitch, and has a cool story about his training partner Brock Lesnar.

Good interview. I agree with him about Bodog, its not looking good for them. To bad about the Fitch fight, win or loose it would of done him wonders.

More I hear about Lesnar more I wonder how far he can actually go. Really looking forward to his fight with Mir! What a great test for his first match in the UFC. Even if Brock goes down to a easy submission, you have to give him credit for taking on a former HW UFC champ. My big question is what kinda shape is Mir going to be in? I am guessing he will come in great shape. He knows the publicity that this fight is going to garner and will hopefully be the old Pre-accident Mir, but the weigh-ins will let us know.

Brock could have a glass jaw, theres too many unkowns about him in this fight. I gotta go Mir, hes seasoned. Brock could suck for all we know, and according to tim sylvia and matt hughes, he does. Thompson says otherwise. I just dont know. I gotta go Mir .

I don't much care what Sylvia hs to say. I would like to read where Hughes commented though. Thanks.

Yeah, good thing that they made those comments when he had only trained with them for a week... And he had only trained a week total by then. He's had about 90 or so weeks since...

This fight is a tough call for me.When I first heard about it I thought Lesnar will smash him.The more I thought about it,I started leaning towards Mir and his experience and submission game,but he did get beatdown by Cruz.I flipped a coin and it came up Mir so that's who I'm picking,but I won't be surprised either way.

Nice job chiming in on something, and not adding a damn thing.

Hope you feel better...
