Frank Mir Video Ranking: 1 / five
Frank Mir Video clip Rating: 4 / five
Former Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC Heavyweight champion Frank Mir will square off against former UFC Heavyweight Championship contender Alistair Overeem at UFC 167 which is scheduled for the 16th of November at Las Vegas in Nevada, according to an official announcement from the UFC.
Mir, who has been a two time title holder in the division in the past, once the lineal belt and once the interim title, has lost all three of his last fights. He suffered two knockout defeats in that span and between those two knockout losses; he was absolutely manhandled before losing in a lopsided unanimous decision to UFC new boy Daniel Cormier. In his most recent fight in the UFC, Mir suffered the second of his recent knockout losses to Josh Barnett at UFC 164 in the very first round.
Although Frank Mir was being completely dominated by Barnett, many critics have mentioned that the stoppage that came at the 1:56 minute mark was a little bit too premature and Mir should have had some more time to mount a counter.
The loss was Mir’s 8th in his professional career and it drops his record to a 16-8. However, despite his recent run of poor form, Mir is still ranked inside the top 10 in the list of Heavyweights and he will look to take out his frustration on Alistair Overeem as he looks to regain his standing in the division.
However, it must also be considered that the Heavyweight division of the UFC has become so crowded at the top that even if Frank Mir embarks on an all conquering run from now, the chances of him getting another shot at the UFC Heavyweight Championship are next to none but he still can retire with some pride intact if he does so.
