Frank Mir to make ACB in ring debut at August UK event

Former UFC champion and MMA legend, Frank Mir will be getting his wish.

After making his Bellator debut last month in a short but thrilling loss to Fedor Emelianenko in the Bellator…

“BELLATOR CAME TO ME, AND THEY’RE TALKING ABOUT OCTOBER,” SAID MIR. “I WOULD LIKE TO GET A FIGHT IN WITH THE ACB BEFORE THAT, SO I CAN JUST GET MORE TIME IN CLOCKED UNDER ME SO I CAN GET MY TIMING BACK ON FOR FIGHTING. YOU CAN TRAIN AS MUCH AS YOU WANT, BUT THERE’S NOTHING LIKE THE REAL THING. I HAD FORTY SECONDS THE PAST TWO YEARS, SO I NEED SOME MORE TIME, SOME MORE ROUNDS,

HOPEFULLY NEXT FIGHT I’LL PROBABLY NOT TAKE SOMEONE AS DANGEROUS AS FEDOR, PROBABLY GET MY FEET A LITTLE BIT UNDERNEATH ME. HOPEFULLY, FEDOR, AFTER HE GOES THROUGH AND HAS SUCCESS AND WINS THE TOURNAMENT, MAYBE I CAN BE HIS FIRST TITLE DEFENSE IF I’VE STRUNG TOGETHER SOME WINS.”
