Frank Mir is pulling a Chael Sonnen

With Dana White recently hinting that the winner of the fight between Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Cain Velasquez at UFC 110 will get the next shot at the Brock Lesnar's title, the winner of the Frank Mir-Shane Carwin fight for the interim belt at UFC 111 may have to wait for the title unification bout.  Frequently, with this wait comes another fight, and most likely a very difficult one.  Frank Mir, feeling that Nogueira or Velasquez will get the title shot, wants to start trash talking the champ, ensuring that he will get the immediate title shot should he defeat Shane Carwin at UFC 111.  It's the same tactic Chael Sonnen used, repeatedly bashing Anderson Silva (both the fighter and the person) prior to his match with Nate Marquardt at UFC 109.  The trash talk helped him solidify his title shot, and Frank Mir is hoping to follow suit.
