Mark Cuban has one response to Mikhail Prokhorov’s promise to “crush” the Mavs owner in a kickboxing fight: not so fast my friend.

The Nets owner said he would fight Cuban over free agent-to-be Deron Williams, who is likely to express interest in Dallas, but Cuban cautions Prokhorov.

“He obviously didn’t see me be the first in WWE history to put Sheamus on the mat,” Cuban told Tim McMahon. “He knows not what he gets himself into.”

Cuban was referencing the guest host appearance he made on “Monday Night Raw” in 2009 when he was thrown out of the ring by Sheamus.

Cuban can talk a good game, and I’m sure he would go dark side in a fight, but I’ll still take my chances with the Russian.
