JR Blogs: Ric Flair Issues, UFC Thoughts on Brock Lesnar, Frank Mir

Jim Ross checks in with a new blog after the Elimination Chamber and Monday’s Raw

on Ric Flair’s domestic issues
Sorry to hear of the firestorm that my pal Ric Flair found himself in Sunday night. “Naitch” and I have been friends for over a quarter of a century and I choose to remain steadfastly behind him. We don’t know all the details of this unfortunate matter nor do we need to know all the details. What we all should do is to hope that this matter is resolved to everyone’s happiness and all involved parties can proceed with their lives.

on Frank Mir/Brock Lesnar
UFC’s Frank Mir made some alarmingly strong and controversial comments on the popular, Mark Madden radio show in Pittsburgh recently about wanting to see Brock Lesnar “die inside the Octagon” seemingly and preferably at Mir’s hands. Frank Mir is a badass who is a driven man but he may want to start thinking before he begins talking. I think Mir is a compelling, sports figure who is obviously obsessed with mangling Brock Lesnar but it’s not Brock Lesnar that Mir is fighting soon. Paging Shane Carwin.

and more on UFC
I actually like the “interim heavyweight champion” tag that will be awarded the winner of the upcoming Mir-Carwin UFC because the winner faces Lesnar, hopefully, later this year in a “champion vs. champion” bout. Carwin could throw a wrench into the plan by knocking Mir cold in New Jersey but if the talkative and combative Mir does win then Mir vs. Lesnar will likely do 1M PPV buys. That’s some “serious money.”
