Frank Mir has had a storied career with wins over some of the greatest heavyweights to ever step inside the Octagon, but at the tender age of 35 he’s starting to wonder if it’s time to hang up the gloves for good. Four losses in a row will do that to you, even if they’re from top-caliber opponents like JDS, Cormier, Barnett and The Reem.
Mir has been fighting against top-tier opponents for, pretty much, his entire career.
When asked in a recent interview what his future plans are in regards to fighting, Mir said “I really don’t know. I’m kind of just taking time off and weighing that out. That’s a decision that me and my family are still trying to – we haven’t come to a conclusive idea yet.”
I imagine the conversation went something like this…
Family: Please don’t fight again, we can’t stand to see you get KO’d anymore.
Mir: But guyssssssssssss….
The announcement that Mir is on the fence about getting into the cage again comes on the heels of him saying he would be up to complete the trilogy against Big Nog and to have it happen in Brazil. Trilogies typically don’t happen when one fighter is down 2-0, and the last thing our heavy hearts need right now is to see another fan-favorite end up like BJ Penn.
