The best post-fight interview that Frank Mir has ever given. All from the heart.

On September 17, 2004, Mir was knocked off his motorcycle by a car (years and years before this fight/interview took place). The accident caused a break in Mir's femur and tore all the ligaments in his knee. The bone had broken in two places but the injury did not end Mir's career as a fighter. Major surgery was needed to repair the bone in his leg. An interim heavyweight title was created while Mir was recovering from the injury, which Andrei Arlovski won by defeating Tim Sylvia by way of a first round submission. On August 12, 2005, the UFC learned that Mir was not able to fight Andrei Arlovski in October as scheduled, thus Mir was stripped of the title after 14 months, and Arlovski was promoted to be the undisputed UFC heavyweight champion. In 2010, Mir told FIGHT! Magazine that he was grateful for the motorcycle accident.

Years and years later....

Frank Mir then defeated Nogueira in the second round via TKO due to strikes, showing vastly improved striking (particularly his boxing), by knocking down the Brazilian twice in the first round, and once in the second. He also scored a Judo-trip takedown in round one. Herb Dean stopped the match at 1:54 of the second round. Nogueira's loss marked the first time he had lost a fight by TKO. In a post fight interview, Mir credited his improved striking to a drastic improvement in conditioning.

Mir won the INTERIM UFC Heavyweight Belt at UFC 92 by defeating Nogueira.
