Despite Frank Mir's recent TKO loss to heavy-handed striker Junior dos Santos in a fight for the UFC's Heavyweight Championship, the long time veteran, who holds records for most fights, wins, and finishes in the UFC's Heavyweight division, plans to continue fighting.
As an 11-year veteran of the sport and a former champion, Mir has certainly invested a great deal of time and effort in his career as a mixed martial artist. However, that does not mean he isn't considering his options for when the day comes to hang up the gloves.
WEC fans may remember Mir as an occasional commentator for the organization that was absorbed by Zuffa, back in 2010, a gig the heavyweight describes as something he will take advantage of when the opportunity presents itself.
However, what fans might not have been expecting from the jiu jitsu specialist is his willingness to dabble in professional wrestling.
"[I'm] Not opposed to the idea [of pro wrestling]," Mir said. "I can't do a back flip or anything."
For now, pro wrestling fans will have to wait, as Mir is focused on recovering from his recent title bout and getting back to training for his next appearance in the Octagon.
