Frank Mir is on his way back to the cage for one last time to conclude his combat career. The 43-year-old former UFC Heavyweight champion has given the fans so many memorable fights throughout his legendary career but now wants to call it a day.
After exiting from UFC, the American mixed martial artist went to Bellator and competed in a total of three matches, where he lost in two and won one, which is not a pretty good record for the former champion. Mir then jumps shipped to Boxing, but the result remained pretty same.
His last fight with Kubrat Pulev, where he got knocked out in the very first round left a very dire memory. Currently, he is focused on his daughter, Bella Mir MMA career who is still undefeated with a 3-0 track record.

He added, “She can headline the card — I can open it… How many times is that going to happen in history?” Father and daughter in the same card is a ‘Halley’s comet’ level of rarity.
