UFC heavyweight contender Frank Mir has cased a stir with recent “Death Wish” comments on the Carmichael Daveâ€™s KHTK radio show in Sacramento. Mir who is also a WEC color commentator, stated:
“I want to fight Lesnar … I hate who he is as a person … I want to break his neck in the ring … I want him to be the first person to die due to a Octagon related injury … that’s whats going through my mind.”
The UFC quickly released a statement apologizing for the remarks:
“I would like to apologize to Brock Lesnar, his family, the UFC and the UFC fans for my stupid remarks. I respect Brock, all the other fighters, and the sport of mixed martial arts. Iâ€™m sorry that I stepped out of line.” [Frank Mir]
“I was disappointed by Frank Mirâ€™s comments. Frankâ€™s been with the UFC a long time, heâ€™s a two-time heavyweight champion and a commentator for the WEC. I think his emotions are running high right now, he has a big fight coming up next month and heâ€™s still upset about his loss to Lesnar. Heâ€™s been talked to, he regrets what he said, and he wonâ€™t be saying anything like that again.” [Dana White]
