Frank Mir left Todd Duffee in a heap last night with this faceplant KO

The former UFC heavyweight champion is not done yet.

HIS DAYS AS a top contender in the UFC’s heavyweight division may be over, but Frank Mir showed last night that there’s still life in the old dog.

Mir took just 1:13 to defeat Todd Duffee in the main event at UFC Fight Night 71 — the organisation’s third event in five days — which took place in San Diego.

Duffee appeared to have Mir on the back-foot until the 36-year-old former champion countered with a big left that sent his opponent crashing to the canvas.


Mir has now won his last two bouts via first-round KO, having defeated Antonio ‘Bigfoot, Silva back in February.

Don’t write him off just yet.
