After a unanimous decision loss to the United States Olympian Daniel Cormier, Frank Mir has found himself on the receiving end of back-to-back defeats and out of immediate title contention. At 33 years old, Mir needs to re-establish himself in the heavyweight division and is looking at least three to four consecutive wins to get back to a title opportunity.
There are certain opponents that can yet again place Mir back into contention. He is going to need a mix of veterans and contenders along the way to establish himself as a title contender again. Also, Cain Velasquez could help Mir out by clearing out the competition and retaining his title.
Mir is a big name in the heavyweight division which always makes his road to a title shot a little bit easier, but this will be his last run if he can string together the necessary wins.
