He secured his first fight in the UFC in 2001, where he fought Roberto Traven and scored a submission victory over the latter. Back when he began his stint in the UFC’s octagon, nobody expected him to trace an extensive pathway in the sport and predominantly the promotion.

Moreover, his annual salary in 2019 was estimated to be around a whopping $1.74 million, including all his MMA fights.

While securing massive paychecks, Mir simultaneously became a fan favorite. All of his fights gathered countless eyeballs and in no time he became the UFC heavyweight champion. By adding constant wins to his name, Mir solidified his resume and became one scary prospect in the big men’s landscape.

He possessed crushing power to complement his solid fight IQ. This helped him dispatch several opponents with sheer brilliance. But with an unimpressive run in the UFC for a long time, Mir moved on from the promotion to fight in Bellator MMA.

The former UFC champion didn’t really have a sublime run there, and in 2019, Mir finally hung up his gloves from the sport. He retired with a cracking track record of 19-13-0.
