Frank Mir Interested In Coaching Brock Lesnar Down The Road

0

From an interview with MMAWeekly.com, interim heavyweight champion Frank Mir tells the site down the line he would like to coach heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar. The two are set to decide the rightful heavyweight king in July at UFC 100:

“I think that a lot of people realize that he was only 1-1, he had a .500 record in the UFC when he got a title shot…. I know at the end I’m going to be able to get a hold of him. There’s going to be a day of reckoning. So he’ll have to answer to me personally. There’s going to be no reporters or nobody to protect him…. Three or four years from now, if I decide to switch over into full time coaching, I would like to coach Brock. I see a lot of things that he’s done in his last couple of fights that I think are mistakes that are not really his fault, they’re maybe his trainer’s faults. How can he be so talented, an NCAA champion, probably one of the best wrestlers to come out of college in the heavyweight division, and still make some of the real basic balancing and footwork mistakes that he’s making right now?”
