• Brock Lesnar’s Former UFC Opponent Makes Wrestling Debut – Wants Lesnar To Die In A Match With Him
Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Frank Mir recently made his wrestling debut and defeated Dan “The Beast” Severn in a match.
Mir, who has faced Brock Lesnar twice in the UFC, cut a promo about Lesnar after the match and said the following:
“Yes, I’m getting into wrestling so I can face Brock [Lesnar]. I couldn’t make him the first Octagon-related death, but maybe I can make him the first one in the ring.”

Lesnar faced Mir in his UFC debut and was forced to tap out. They had their rematch at UFC 100, where Lesnar brutalized Mir to retain the UFC Heavyweight Championship in a PPV that broke record for UFC’s all-time PPV buys (before Conor McGregor’s rematch with Nate Diaz happened and set the new record, which was later broken by McGregor vs. Khabib).
