Frank Mir is one of those potential opponents -- and that fact is not lost on the former UFC heavyweight champion.

"I think it would be a huge, big fight," Mir said a read news >>

Super fight? Absolutely! "I feel like it's rare in this sport to have the ability, the opportunity and the fortune of having super fights at multiple weights. I started in this sport because I love it. I love the challenge and I love to perform. Fighting a guy like Frankie Edgar is exactly the reason I got into this sport. I'm a fan of the heart Frankie has as a fighter, something I'm known for as well. I was a 145 lb. champion and he was a 155 lb. champion so it's cool for me to be able to make read news >>

Retirement? Dan Henderson isn't considering anything like that. The MMA legend fell to Gegard Mousasi by TKO in the first round Saturday night at UFC on FOX 14: Gustafsson vs. Johnson in Stockholm, Sweden. Henderson was rocked, fell down against the cage and then was finished by Mousasi. The stoppage might have been a tad early -- Henderson seemed to be coming to when referee Leon Roberts stepped in -- but there was no doubt "Hendo" was in big trouble. Henderson (30-12) has now lost five of his read news >>

At this point, he should probably just stay home. That's because he'll get wrecked by Robbie Lawler if he decides to make another go-round in combat sports. That's according to UFC hall of famer and longtime "Ruthless" supporter Pat Miletich, who beli read news >>

Current welterweight champion Robbie Lawler spent years training under the UFC Hall of Famer in Bettendorf, Iowa, but Miletich says the slugger would have been a nightmare matchup for St-Pierre long before his recent career resurgence at American Top Team. "I think at the time Georges St. Pierre was the champion and I told read news >>
