Former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir is one of the last old-school fighters who continue to compete. But as the 43-year-old told Brendan Schub on the Thiccc Boy podcast, he is planning for his retirement fight in 2023 and he has one source of motivation.
“I’m trying to heal up a lot of my injuries and stuff and take this seriously. Next year, I’m gonna go and fight again because I actually want to fight once on the same card with (daughter) Bella as my last fight,” Mir said (H/T MMA Mania).
“She can headline the card — I can open it … How many times is that going to happen in history?”
The 19-year-old Bella made her pro-MMA debut in September 2020, which she won via decision. She followed it up with two submission victories in December 2020 and most recently, in June to compile a 3-0 record.
As for her father Frank, he is coming off a decision loss to Steve Cunningham in his boxing debut under Triller in 2021. In MMA, he holds a record of 19-13, with his last fight taking place in October 2019 against fellow UFC vet Roy Nelson at Bellator 231. Mir won the bout via decision.
