Last night, amid the festivities of WrestleMania Week, Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport returned with a second, thrilling show. This pro wrestling show featured a host of UFC veterans including Barnett himself, Dan Severn, and Frank Mir, who was making his pro wrestling debut.
Mir won his pro wrestling debut, submitting Severn with a heel hook. In his post-victory speech, he issued a callout of fellow UFC veteran Brock Lesnar, whose first claim to fame is as a WWE star.
In this speech, Frank Mir referenced an infamous comment he made previously, in which he expressed his desire to kill Brock Lesnar in the Octagon.
See it below:
“Yes, I’m getting into this so I can face Brock,” Mir told the crowd in Jersey City, New Jersey (transcript via MMA Mania). “I couldn’t make him the first Octagon-related death, but maybe I can make him the first one in the ring.”
Frank Mir and Brock Lesnar fought twice in the UFC’s Octagon. Mir won their first encounter, tapping the former wrestler with a first-round knee bar. The pair rematched at the landmark UFC 100 pay-per-view, and things went much worse for Mir. This time around, Lesnar smashed his foe into strawberry jam, winning by second-round TKO.
