Former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir (16-9) has been ambivalent about whether or not he'd return to MMA competition after a long career and losing four straight. In a recent interview, however, Mir said he wants to fight again, if he can get a rubber match with fellow former champ, the retired Brock Lesnar (5-3).

"If Lesnar comes back, I think it will be good for MMA," Mir told Globo.

"He is still popular, people still know who he is and this brings more attention. He and I have a win each in the times we face. A new fight between us would be very welcome. I'd love to welcome him in the UFC."

Lesnar has been retired from MMA competition for years, and is back in professional wrestling. There have been rumors floating that Lesnar's WWE contract may be running out soon, and that the former NCAA wrestling national champion might be interested in returning to fighting.

Mir submitted Lesnar in the wrestler's UFC debut back in 2008. The following year, however, Lesnar brutalized Mir and won via TKO.

Lesnar ended his MMA career with two straight losses, and retired in late 2011. Mir has not fought since Feb., when he lost his fourth straight bout, to Alistair Overeem.
