Could Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir happen again? Certainly the trash talk might be a little foreshadowing of what might be coming in the near future. Frank Mir recently shocked fans around the world by saying he'd like to kill Lesnar.

Of course, Lesnar himself said something similar in 2009.

In case you weren't paying attention, Lesnar said before UFC 100 that he was going "to murder" Mir. Frank Mir did him one better later saying the following words. "I want to fight Lesnar. I hate who he is as a person, I want to break his neck in the ring, I want him to be the first person that dies due to Octagon-related injuries."

Mir later had to apologize for his strong words about the big man. It was shocking, even for a sport where the object is to hurt your opponent as much as possible. Yet fans, media, the organizations and the fighters themselves all know those kinds of heated moments only hype up a possible rematch between Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir. The UFC had to issue an apology concerning the strong words from Mir as it tried to maintain a more sportsmanlike platform that they’ve tried to cultivate.

Lesnar went on to become heavyweight champ after losing his opening fight to Mir via the tap out. Lesnar returned the favor by defeating Mir in the rematch.

What would the trash talk be like before a potential third fight? It could seriously get out of hand. Maybe Mir and Lesnar would both agree to disagree from a verbal standpoint and let the action in the ring do the talking. The two fighters are even at one win apiece in one of the biggest and much talked about battles in UFC history.

There needs to be a tie-breaker in the Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir series. It's only fair to let the two have a best of three event. Their collision would be epic indeed. Rhetoric aside, we can only hope Lesnar vs. Mir Part 3 is coming soon.
