Fight Archives: Frank Mir and one of the earliest arm breaks in MMA history

So Frank Mir will be fighting this weekend. And no, it wouldn’t be according to boxing or MMA laws. It will be a bit of both.

The 42-year-old former UFC heavyweight champion will make Triller’s first headline Battle trio events, a new “revolutionary” sport that aims to bring the two worlds of tournament together. The rules will be revised to “level the playing field” between fighters of both sports.

Most notably, the matches will be held in a triangle ring. Try to wrap your head around that.

Big highlights for Mir for this career move, for which he expects a seven-figure salary a day. But I would like to remember the man for his submissive acumen, which at his height was something of a stand-out.

And if you’re like me, your mind’s moment to perfectly express that would be his utterly sinister kimura ending to another grappling legend, Antonio Rodrigo “Big Nog” Nogueira.

All of this happened almost ten years ago, and it is still with me to this day. And after watching it again, I completely forgot how soon Mir got his legs crossed. Had it not been for Big Nog’s guillotine effort to engage in grappling, he would have likely won a TKO.

But the chips fell the way they did, and we’ve all been treated to one of the worst pictures inside that cage, for better or for worse. If you’re the hardcore type, you should look away around the 3:47 mark in the video below. But if you’re completely fine with it, go ahead and enjoy.
