Watch Frank Mir tell a bizarre story on how a teammate beat up and ran after a critic, all while being butt naked.
Frank Mir has been around the game for 14 years, and he’s had his fair share of experiences in the MMA world. The former heavyweight champ shared one of those bizarre gym stories about an unnamed UFC and PRIDE vet who attacked a critic while butt naked.
“I’m not going to name names,” Mir started as he shared a story about his former teammate. “But in a gym that I have trained at in the past, there’s other top level professional fighters training there. One professional fighter in particular, happened to be taking a shower after practice.”
“Somebody, who was a blue belt-level guy, never fought in his life, was outside on the mats critiquing said fighter’s performance and giving his own two cents,” he said. “It wasn’t taken very well, from what I heard later on from several people. Because obviously when I show up at the gym, I’m like ‘what happened??'”
“Said professional fighter, who has had experiences in PRIDE and in UFC, so he’s a legitimate guy at the top of his game at that time. He overheard the discussion on his ‘lack of ability’. So when he stepped out of the shower, he didn’t take the time to get dressed, ’cause he was angry.”
“So he came out in a rage, attacked said critic, who was basically balled up, defenseless on the ground,” Mir said. “So said professional fighter, stark naked, grinding up a guy on the ground, and no one wanted to break up the fight. I asked why they didn’t do anything, ‘Bro, he was naked’.
“He really wasn’t getting in good shots on the guy,” he said. “The guy was balled up pretty good, even to the point that they were able to distract him enough that the guy was able to run out to his car.”
“The fact that he ran outside, still didn’t stop this particular professional. He actually chased after him,” Mir stated. “He walked down the street attacking on the guy’s car, and again this all happened while he was in his birthday suit.”
Mir has his own podcast called Phone Booth Fighting, and watch the video below for a periscope session from the episode.
