Junior Dos Santos Feels Frank Mir Talks A Lot Of BS

Number one heavyweight title contender Junior Dos Santos is expected to face Cain Velasquez in November for the UFC Heavyweight Championship following an impressive victory over Shane Carwin last month.
Another heavyweight top ten ranked fighter, Frank Mir, had earlier this year spoke about how he felt while Dos Santos may be a great boxer, Mir himself hit harder.
That comment lead to the following reply by Dos Santos in a recent interview with Fighters Only:
FO: Frank Mir stated he hits harder than you. Is he an opponent you would like to face one day?
Who, Frank Mir? He said what?
FO: Yeah, he said he hits harder. Would you like to fight him to avenge Nogueira’s loss?
[laughs] First off, regarding hitting harder than me… [more laughter; pause for breath]
Look… when a fighter begins either to lose, or not to get satisfactory results, what does he do to promote himself? He talks. And it is what he’s doing. Frank Mir is a guy who likes to talk a lot, talks lots of bullshit and I don’t believe he hits harder than me.
