UFC heavyweight Frank Mir may be fighting for his octagon life on Saturday night when he faces off against Alistair Overeem at UFC 169, but even if he loses the bout and is released from the promotion we will get a chance to continue seeing him inside of the UFC cage thanks to EA Sports UFC.

Stepping into the Octagon for the first time in only his third pro bout, Frank Mir has been a staple of the UFC’s Heavyweight division since 2001. After winning the Heavyweight title from Tim Sylvia in 2004, Mir was sidelined for 20 months by a near career-ending motorcycle accident. His return to the sport is recognized as one of the greatest comebacks in UFC history, with Mir managing to fight his way back to become the division’s interim champion in 2008. An impressive ground game has helped Mir secure devastating submission wins over, Sylvia, Brock Lesnar, Cheick Kingo and Minotauro Nogueira.
