Mir: I am still driving towards a tittle again

 

Frank Mir was at one time the best heavyweight in the UFC and a heavyweight champion. He was also the most feared submission specialist in the division and still may be, but has some work to do to get himself back in the title picture. Mir, however, still is driving towards that goal:

Mir, who declared during the UFC 164 media conference call that he still has championship dreams and isn't ready to give up on them just yet.

His words:

"I don't concede the fact of just trying to put on great fights. Obviously, the outcome of my drive is to actually work back towards the title. I don't see it as a situation where that's no longer within my grasp. The training I'm doing now, where I'm at in life, being only 34 years of age, I don't really see it as an issue to concede to the fact that 'Oh I'm only going to fight to be an entertaining fight just added onto a card.' That's just not where I'm at in my life."

Mir recently decided to switch things up and head down to Albuquerque, New Mexico, to get some training under the tutelage of Greg Jackson and Mike Winkeljohn prior to his UFC on FOX 7 clash against Cormier.

Frank Mir has mastered sidestepping, he is going to be unstoppable.

It wasn't the fact that he lost those fights, it was the way he looked in the Cormier fight that did it for me. He was really slow, he was never extremely fast, but his hands have always been sharp and quick. He looked substantially slower, gassed, and alot of times it looks like he has just has lost his will to win. Alot of that can be attributed to Cormiers dominating performance that night, I hope so, because I like Frank Mir. I think competing at such a high level for so long has really taken its toll, unfortunately.

If Cain keeps the belt....Frank would whoop that ass at least twice if they fought 10 times.

I love that Mir still has this attitude after his recent losses, but goddammit he could've taken Cormier. I'm not one to yell at the TV during fights but I was losing my shit for that one.
