UFC FN 61: Watch Frank Mir KO “Bigfoot” Silva, Discuss Crucial Victory

Kelsey Mowatt

Frank Mir

Frank Mir likely stopped the curtain from dropping on his lengthy UFC run last night in Porto Alegre, Brazil, by bombing out “Bigfoot” Silva in the opening round.

Now if you (or a loved one) were throwing a Oscar’s party last night, or you elected to pass on a card that wasn’t exactly an all-star littered event, you may not have caught Mir’s win. As you’ll see by watching Mir’s post-fight interview below, the former heavyweight champ floored Silva with a left hook and then finished the deal with follow up strikes.

It was a huge, huge win for Mir, who was coming off four consecutive losses. Although all of the defeats came against top contenders, not getting cut after a fifth, straight defeat is a damn rare thing, even for decorated fighters like Mir.

Silva, meanwhile, hasn’t won a bout now since 2013.
