Former UFC heavyweight champion Frank-Mir-UFC-146-weigh-478x270Frank Mir has often been the underdog throughout his career; that’s nothing new as he heads into his UFC on Fox 7 bout with Daniel Cormier.

He’s also often been told that he needs to change up his training, maybe look outside his comfort zone to go and train somewhere – like Jackson’s MMA in Albuquerque, N.M. – where he’s no longer the biggest dog in the fight.

This time in his career, after having a heart-to-heart talk with his wife and father, Mir decided it was finally time to get out of his comfort zone and moved his camp to Jackson’s MMA. He believes it has paid off, particularly in his conditioning. But, he still understands that he’s the underdog… and why that is so.

“If we go through my career, I’m always the underdog,” Mir recounted during a Thursday media scrum. “I think the pretty boy face just does not bode well for people to think I’m gonna smash somebody.”

Check out what Frank Mir had to say during his media scrum interview in San Jose, Calif.
