The war of words of has begun and the fighters haven't even landed at the Mandalay Bay for UFC 100. Frank Mir has a way of getting under a guy's skin and he's done the job with Brock Lesnar. In what will probably be his last lengthy interview, the UFC heavyweight champ was asked repeatedly about Mir's harsh words for his training, trainers, cardio and completeness as a fighter, but Lesnar didn't go nuts in the conversation with Larry Pepe from ProMMARadio but he did have his moments. The big guy said Mir is afraid of this fight (0:20 mark):
"That's the first sign of someone who's flat out scared. After the first fight, Frank admitted that he was getting his ass beat. Frank said 'you know I've never been hit that hard in my entire life.' It's coming again and I think he's scared. I've seen these guys like this before. When that door gets shut there nobody to run his mouth to, you'll see a whole other of Frank Mir."
Lesnar thinks Mir is jealous. Lesnar says he has the real belt and makes more money:
"I've been dealing with jealous people all my life. He's out running his mouth because there's a lot of insecurities. I'm not making fun of his trainers or making fun of him. He has every right to be jealous. Just two fights in and I'm the champ."
Pepe did a nice job of bringing up the fact that lots of fighters have questioned his credibility as the champ, that included former UFC champ Tim Sylvia:
"That says a lot for the sport, ouch. Just keep taking your foot out of your mouth Swamp Thing," Lesnar said commenting on Sylvia's 10 seconds loss to 48-year-old Ray Mercer. "I just stay focused on the task in front of me. All this stuff your bringing up, this is why I don't surf the internet. I really don't care. I'm doing what I love to do. I could give two whatevers about whatever people think of me."
Lesnar mentioned towards the end of the interview that he's a very lean 269 pounds with four days left before the fight.
