Frank Mir still has a few years left in him

With four losses in-a-row, and 3 of those being pretty brutal, one-sided losses, many think that at 35-years-old, Frank Mir should retire. You can count me as one of them. He hasn’t won in 2.5 years, and I don’t like guys getting punchy as they get older. You had a great career, Frank. You have nothing to prove, so hang ’em up.

There’s no shame in that.

But no, Frank looks like he’s going the way of so many fighters.

“I just turned 35 a couple of weeks ago. As a heavyweight, that’s really not that old. I think I’m still younger than some of them.  I think 35 would be a pretty young age to retire.  It would just be a long time of me commentating or broadcasting, which I plan on doing, but I’d hope to be able to fight for a few more years because once it’s over with it’s kind of over with.”

“Once I take some time off and heal up and feel good about fighting, I’ll fight anybody,” Mir said. “Just jump back in there.”
