UFC 92 Video: Frank Mir Says Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira Will Make Their Fight a War

Frank Mir talks about his upcoming interim heavyweight title fight with Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 92:

"It is the biggest fight of my career," Mir said of Nogueira. "He's the most accomplished opponent I've ever been in the cage with. I hope to be in a war because Nogueira, on his part it will always be a war. If it's not a war it's because I've failed. ... I don't think anybody respects him more than I do."

Mir also says he thinks Brock Lesnar should have had to do more to earn his heavyweight title shot against Randy Couture, mentioning Cain Velasquez as a figther who is, in Mir's mind, just as deserving.
