Mir excited to welcome Strikeforce heavyweights to UFC

Confidence is running high right now for former champion Frank Mir as he rides a three fight win-streak in the UFC. Not to mention becoming the only man to snap not one, but two opponent’s arm in the octagon. Mir admits that currently the heavyweight division is not as deep as the other UFC weight classes, and says he’s excited to welcome over the Strikeforce heavyweights as he says he did with the Pride FC talent.

“We don’t have the type of depth that the other weight classes have and I think it’s only a benefit to move them (Strikeforce heavyweights) over to us. I guess I have a bad taste in my mouth because of what happened when I first started my career. I had to always hear about, ‘Oh, you guys are good, but the PRIDE guys would kick your butt.’ There is no comparison and then that frustration of not being able to get to them. And then when Nogueira came over and Mirko, ( I ) got a hold of them. ‘Yeah, but there is still Fedor.’ I don’t want to hear that. I want to know that anybody that is in the division, it’s like if you think you can beat me, ‘Hey Joe Silva, is he clear?’ Okay, cool, let’s fight. Now we can solve it you know? That whole unattainable thing just drives me insane.”
