At the time this article was written, Frank Mir was getting set to meet Shane Carwin for the interim UFC Heavyweight belt in March of 2010. Here are 15 things you might not know about the former UFC champion.

1.) Born Francisco Santos Mir III on May 24, 1979

2.) First professional fight was against Jerome Smith in Hook and Shoot (win by decision)

3.) First pro loss was against Ian Freeman in UFC 38 by way of TKO

4.) Never has lost 2 pro fights in a row

5.) Has 8 wins by submission

6.) 2008 Sherdog comeback fighter of the year

7.) 1998 Nevada State wrestling champion

8.) Made UFC debut against Roberto Traven (win by submission)

9.) Received his jiu-jitsu black belt after only 5 years of training

10.) Received “Tap Out Of The Night” honors at UFC 34

11.) Has 2 wins by KO

12.) Still holds a discus record at his high school in California (Sunset) of 177 feet

13.) He first studied Kenpo Karate under his father

14.) Has never been submitted as a professional

15.) Had a high school wrestling record of 44-1

After Frank Mir was involved in a life threatening motorcycle accident while holding the UFC Heavyweight belt, it looked as though his fight career would be over and that he would be lucky to be able to live a normal life. Instead he has risen against great odds to now fight for the heavyweight title in the UFC a third time.
