DALLAS (105.3 THE FAN) – Despite being a twelve year veteran of The UFC and a multi time heavyweight champion in the organization, Frank Mir is only 34 years old. It’s an age that may be indicative of a fighter in the latter half of his career, but nonetheless a relatively young age for someone with his experience.
Mir has dealt with injuries that have effected him along the way, including a major motorcycle accident in 2004 that caused him to be forced to vacate The UFC heavyweight title. The last few years though have been good ones for Mir, fighting top contenders and challenging again for the title last year against then champion Junior Dos Santos. He also became the first person to submit legend Minotauro Nogueria, and he remains The UFC’s #6 ranked heavyweight.
