Frank Mir Says A S—— Win Is Better Than A S—– Loss

Many are calling UFC 119's main event between Frank Mir and Mirko Cro Cop the worst UFC main event in history and although no fight can likely surpass the shear boredom of watching the second Ken Shamrock and Dan Severn fight at UFC 9 way back in 1996, Mir doesn't seemed bothered by his performance since he ended up picking the win up at the end of round 3:

“I guess a s—-y win is better than as—-y loss,” Mir said after Saturday's pay-per-view event. “Other than that, I'm really pissed off about my performance.”

“I got really frustrated because with pushing him against the cage, I drilled so much on what to do from there, and I was making mistakes I wasn't making a month ago that I thought I had corrected. So halfway through the fight, I'm actually bitching to myself. … I think that was part of my problem. I needed to clear my mind more.”

“Without a single takedown, I was able to stand up for two and a half rounds with Mirko and get the knockout. I guess that's a bonus. That's the only positive I can take from this.”

“At least I can rest easy knowing I didn't go to decision.”

“I didn't huff and puff one time, and in the past, I've always sort of been known for (bad) conditioning, That wasn't a factor at all. I felt in great shape the whole time.”
