Frank Mir | I already Had My Eye On JDS


“I would be lying if I said it didn’t pull me away from my preparations for Velasquez. The fact it came through was a good thing, because I already had one eye on dos Santos. I’m actually happy the fight got changed. We were like everyone else — reading the Internet, saying this guy tested positive; what’s up? He was already pretty checked out.”

Former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir tells ESPN that he is happy he got promoted to a title shot as opposed to having go through with his original opponent of Cain Velasquez.

Did the UFC make the right call?
