UFC 140: Weigh In

According to his conversation with Reuben Villagracia of The Chronicle Journal, UFC Heavyweight Frank Mir is “not opposed to the idea” of pro wrestling.

Although he’d like to have a career in MMA broadcasting when he retires from the octagon, he considers a career in professional wrestling despite his lack of gymnastic talent.

“I like analyzing fights and I like doing color commentating,” Mir said. “It’s an opportunity I would take advantage of when I run into it. Hopefully it’s something I can do full time.”

A possible foray into professional wrestling isn’t out of the question either. “Not opposed to the idea,” Mir said. “I can’t do a back flip or anything.”

Frank Mir recently attempted to take the belt from UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior Dos Santos at UFC 146 only to suffer a loss via TKO in the second round.

With crossover athletes like Brock Lesnar and King Mo going back and forth between pro wrestling and MMA, who knows what the future holds for veterans like Frank Mir.

Do you think MMA fighters have a place in pro wrestling and vise versa?
