Hate the Fights of TUF 10? Mir Agrees…

Kimbo Slice has not drawn Frank Mir to the latest season of “The Ultimate Fighter.”

In fact, he’d just as well watch the WEC.

“I don’t even know what’s going on, I had to turn it off,” he said of the UFC’s flagship reality show at a WEC Q & A last week. “I’m being serious. It was bad. Some of the fights were horrible.”

The former UFC heavyweight champ praised the fights of the lighter weight organization, which, according to Dana White, won’t be folded into the UFC anytime soon.

“I haven’t seen any fights in the WEC that could ever amount to being that bad, because the lighter guys are just more competitive,” Mir continued. “They’re in shape, they’re more strategic. Even when you go to a college wrestling match, typically, the heavyweights are boring to watch.”

The 32-year-old Mir fights Cheick Kongo at UFC 107 on Dec. 12, though he’s really jonesing for a rematch with Brock Lesnar.

But when it comes to watching MMA on TV, Mir says he’ll stick to the little guys.

“I’m a heavyweight and I’m saying… (the fights are) nowhere near as exciting as the lightweights,” he said.
