“The fans are really psyched about this card because the UFC has put together a great line-up, “ says Mir, 32, is a native of Las Vegas who started his martial arts career at the age of 4. “Denver has always been one of my favorite spots in the U.S., so a big thanks to XYIENCE and King Soopers for the opportunity to meet the UFC fans in the area. I hope to see everyone on Saturday.”
Recently, UFC.com reported that Mir and Minotauro Nogueira, also a former UFC heavyweight champion, made a verbal agreement to meet once again in the octagon at UFC 140 on December 10, 2011 in Toronto.
