Mir confirmed Friday evening his injury and withdrawal in an interview with BodyBuilding.com at the Arnolds Sports Expo. The injury was first reported by FiveOuncesOfPain.com.
"Hopefully the summertime," Mir said, when asked when he'll fight Lesnar. "It was supposed to be May 23 but I needed some scope done to my knee, so I got it done immediately last week. It'll be rushing to try to fight that soon because I can't really train for four to six weeks as far as sparring and wrestling and the real forms of training. Obviously I can hit the tread, but that's not a good idea, to get in shape for a fight on a treadmill."
