Cage Writer hunted down UFC interim heavyweight champ Frank Mir in Columbus today. He was told by UFC to not reveal any details or plans about UFC 98. The Mir-Brock Lesnar fight appeared to be in jeopardy with Mir just getting his knee surgically repaired on Monday. The UFC told Yahoo's Kevin Iole that the fight is still a go for May 23. Mir said he'll elaborate on injury specifics and the scheduled fight, tonight during the UFC 98 pay-per-view broadcast.
Mir seemed a little irked by the gag order. When asked about fighting in 10 weeks at UFC 98, he sounded a bit frustrated:
"It would probably be better if I sit down but things don't always work out that way."
Sounds like the decision has already been made for Mir.
