Frank Mir

Frank Mir may have a broken jaw and rib following UFC 130.

Mir was absent from the UFC 130 post-fight press conference to go to the hospital for a possible fractured jaw and rib.

UFC president Dana White revealed the news during the press conference.

“Frank Mir will not be here. We went to the hospital, fractured jaw and rib.”

The former two-time heavyweight titleholder dominated Roy Nelson in the co-main event of UFC 130, winning by unanimous decision.

Mir displayed superior wrestling and better striking throughout the bout, but Nelson caught him with a few right hands during the course of the fight. One of them may have fractured Mir’s Jaw.

The win over Nelson was the 32-year-old’s second in a row. After the fight, Mir said he wants to get back to a title fight and compete for the belt that was once his.

Now he joins a laundry list of fighters on the shelf due to injury.

Other fighters from the UFC 130 fight card that went to the hospital for examinations included Stefan Struve, Jorge Santiago, Michael McDonald, and others.

UPDATE: Frank Mir’s wife tweeted early Sunday morning an update on her husband’s injuries. 

“His jaw isn’t broken he already knew that but they made him go cuz he was complaining about his bite,” she tweeted.
