Frank Mir Video Rating: four / five
Former Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC Heavyweight champion Frank Mir wants to take home the limbs of Daniel Cormier after finishing with him at UFC on FOX 7 and according to DC, that very thought is extremely disturbing. Mir, who is a former two time champion in the UFC’s 265 lbs division has a very unique way with words and was never one to shy away from a pre-match hullaballoo if it gave him a slight edge.
And in a manner very typical of the Heavyweight fighter, Mir stated that should Cormier make the slightest of mistakes during their encounter on the 20th of April at UFC on Fox 7, he will hunt him down and take his limbs home with him. For his own part, however, DC has stated that he will not be going into the Octagon with a whole lot of emotion and he added that if the mind of Frank Mir works in the way he is proclaiming it does, then it is absolutely disgusting.
The former winner of the Strike Force Heavyweight Grand Prix was speaking at the media conference call ahead of UFC on FOX 7, Cormier stated that he is very big on fighting with a whole lot of emotion but added that he won’t be going into the match against Mir with any sort of emotion, before going on to add that there is absolutely nothing that Frank Mir can say which will make him fight a more dangerous fight than he already does.
But DC should be aware that Mir is not someone who only talks the talks but also walks the talks after he broke the arm of Antonio Rogerio Nogueira when they faced each other back at UFC 140 almost two years back now, which might worry DC.
He suffered a loss in a championship match just last May but according to former Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC Heavyweight Championship contender Frank Mir, it doesn’t take too much effort to be ranked highly in the division in the promotion. Speaking to a Mixed Martial Arts media platform, Mir stated that the Heavyweight division in the promotion is always a short road compared to the other divisions. He added it is extremely difficult in the Heavyweight division to put together a string of two or three wins, adding that things change pretty quickly here.
Since the inception of the UFC Heavyweight Championship, there has been no champion who has been able to defend the title on more than two occasions. Of the 17 title reigns that the division has seen till date, only Brock Lesnar, Randy Couture, and Tim Sylvia have retained the title after two defenses. Frank Mir was crowned the champion for a short while but after he suffered a road accident, he had to relinquish the title before he could have the opportunity to defend it.
He would go on to win the interim UFC Heavyweight Championship title several years later but he failed to win the title unification bout against Brock Lesnar at UFC 100. After suffering another bout of injury, Mir is ready to step inside the ring once again as he gets ready to take on Daniel Cormier, hoping to get the better of him so that he can earn another crack at the UFC Heavyweight Championship.
Cormier is undefeated in his last 11 fights. The two of them were set to face last year before Frank Mir got injured, delaying the match till UFC on FOX 7, which is scheduled to take place on the 20th of April in San Jose.
