Frank Mir in an interview with MMA Weekly.

On his first UFC fight.

“My first fight in the UFC I was like 22 years old,”

On the Heavyweight division.

“There’s not a lot of heavyweights right now that are in the UFC that are 22 years of age. I think being 32, I’m more on the average side as far as age group for heavyweights, I just got into it so early.”

On how he adapted to stay dominant in the Heavyweight division.

“I was able to avoid getting burned out because of my ability to adapt and look at things, and keep me humble and look at film and go ‘oh, I need to improve this’ and I’ve always strived to improve,”

“That’s why I don’t have the same coaches that I had 10 years ago. As coaches I’ve worked with and developed and I out grew them, I went and searched and found where I could find better training at.”
