Alistair Overeem: If I lose to Frank Mir, I'll quit MMA


UFC Alistair Overeem appeared on Monday's episode of Ariel Helwani's The MMA Hour, and said if he loses to Frank Mir at UFC 167 in November, he will quit MMA. 'Reem is on a two-fight win streak. Mir has lost three in a row.

"If I lose to Frank Mir, I have to find something else to do," said Overeem.

"I just lost my last fight and was just thinking about what I was going to do next and have a nice holiday. The fight is coming way more sooner than I expected...I was aiming for maybe December, January. But I'm a fighter and I love to be active."

What do you think UG? Could this fight be a loser leaves town match?

Way to take destiny in your own hands. If he loses to Mir, he'll be cut IMO

the worst part is, Frank looked in the mirror practicing that face and thought "oh yeah baby, that's the stuff...rarrrr"

Well,this much I know for sure, somebody has to win. That said, I am pulling for Frank. He has a tendency to lose a few, get overlooked, and then come out and win a few in devastating fashion, (see Nog, Congo, the first Brock fight). Overeem is so overrated and he is never going to get his cockiness in check to not overlook opponents, and you guys aren't helping that, so I am picking Mir in this one.
