Frank Mir Would Likely Retire If He Was Cut By The UFC

In an interview with MMA hour recently, Frank Mir revealed that if he were cut by the UFC that would likely be the end of his professional MMA career and he would hang up his gloves for good.

Mir had this to say regarding the matter:

“I think it just depends on how much we are able to draw. I’ve always tried to help in that argument. When people ask for certain explanations on why certain guys get title shots and some guys don’t, I’ve always told people this is a business. It isn’t so much who has a 30-0 record, but if no one wants to come watch you fight, then it doesn’t matter. As far as if the UFC is willing to release us … I find it hard to believe that they would let Alistair be picked up by another organization. I still think he can sell a ton of tickets. As for myself, I keep my opinions, I guess. I don’t know, I guess I’ll have to see if, I don’t know, what I’m selling afterwards. No, I wasn’t (thinking of retirement). Obviously, I have no real desire to fight for another organization, so if I were to be let go, I think that would be a huge step in the form of retirement.”
