Fight Archives: One of the Worst Arm Breaks in the History of Frank Mir and MMA


So Frank Mir is fighting this weekend. And no, it’s not under boxing or MMA rules. It will be a little bit of both.

The 42-year-old former UFC heavyweight champion will headline the first title of the trailer The Triad War The event is a new “revolutionary” sport that aims to bring together both rewarding worlds. The rules are modified to “level the playing field” between fighters of both sports.

Most importantly, matches take place in the triangle ring. Try to wrap your head around it.

The big grounds for Mir for this career are that they expect a seven-digit salary. But I remember the man for his submission acumen, which, at his peak, was something to behold.

And if you are like me, it is the moment of your mind to fully demonstrate Antonio Rodrigo “Big Nog” Nogueira’s absolutely evil Kimura finish.

All of this happened about ten years ago, and it still gets me today. And after watching it again, I completely forgot how Mir was torn on his front legs. If the Big Guy’s guillotine effort was not involved in grappling, they would have won the TKO.

But the chips fell the way they did, and we all considered one of those nasty scenes in the cage, for better or worse. If you’re squeamish, you should look around the 3:47 mark in the video below. But if you’re totally fine with it, go ahead and take part.
