Frank Mir Confirms Next Fight Will Be In England For ACB In August
Frank Mir’s next fight will take place in England under the ACB banner.
The news was announced this evening at a pre-fight press conference for ACB 87 which goes down at the Motorpoint Arena in Nottingham, England tomorrow evening.
“The next time we come down here to England, I believe it’s sometime in August we’re looking at.
“I hoped to headline one of the ACB cards going on at that time, we’re still working on an opponent, at that point when we have something more official, we will have more exact details.
“Hopefully we will be back here and I’ll be making my second appearance in the UK.”
Mir last fought in England back at UFC 38 when he lost via TKO to Ian Freeman in London, England.
ACB later clarified that they have a venue currently pencilled in for August in England, but that they’d not yet signed on the dotted line and that
When asked about any opponents that he would like to face, Mir kept his cards close to his chest.
“Honestly, I don’t really have a perspective on that,” Mir said.
“I took two years off and coming back and fighting Fedor Emelianenko probably wasn’t the easiest coming off that layoff for an opponent.
“Just anything to get more ring time. My goal is to fight 3 times this year and I’m 39 in a few weeks so I don’t have many competitions ahead of me.
“Between Bellator and ACB, I’ll fight over here (in England) in August and hopefully get a Bellator fight in October and just hope to keep it rolling, get back in form and then get back in title contention.”
