Frank Mir Says Brock Lesnar Does The ‘Bare Minimum’ In Wrestling


Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Frank Mir was a recent guest on the “Insight with Chris Van Vliet” podcast to discuss his MMA rivalry with Brock Lesnar and why he’s chosen to move away from pursuing a career in pro wrestling.

Additionally, Mir revealed that he’s heard that Brock Lesnar does the “bare minimum” when it comes to pro wrestling.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On how close Mir vs. Lesnar III was to happening in pro wrestling instead of MMA: “You know what? I wanted to put myself in a position by going out there and being successful at it, but it was one of those things that it wasn’t even in talks yet.”

On why a third fight with Brock Lesnar is not close to happening: “No. Not on his radar, I guess, just that he doesn’t want to do it. When you’re the A-side, he’s the draw money-wise, he gets to make more of the calls. … From what I was told because of the way I responded after the second fight, he truly felt that I was a little off. I think in Lesnar’s mind, like, ‘How can you want to fight me again? You know, people don’t. So, there’s something wrong with you.’ I think it kind of made him uneasy.”

On what he hears about Lesnar from pro wrestling circles: “Yeah, I don’t know much about his pro wrestling. I don’t watch that often, so I don’t know how bad he is at it. But I think he’s definitely a guy, from what I understand, listening to other people in the industry, he does the bare minimum of what he has to do to cash a check, and I don’t fault him for that. Hey, look, we all got to make money, and I think he’s more naturally a fighter than he is a pro wrestler. And so, I think that it’s not his first love, but financially, it pays better. Obviously, he can continue to do it for a lot longer.”
