Frank Mir - "How I hit the Guillotine on Cheick Kongo at UFC 107"
Frank Mir is a fighter, coach and larger than life personality who is synonymous with both the sport of MMA and the explosive growth of it's largest promotion, the UFC. Currently competing in Bellator MMA, the legendary athlete is a former UFC Heavyweight Champion (having competed in the promotion for 16 years) and still currently holds the record for most fights, victories, and submissions in UFC Heavyweight history. Born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevade, he began training and competing in American Kenpo at a school owned by his parents, earning his black belt as a teenager. Frank's father was a Cuban-born wrestler of Russian and Moroccan heritage, who played a major role in convincing him to begin wrestling on the basis that it could help him avoid submissions. He joined the wrestling team at Bonanza High School during his junior year and lost his first nine matches. During his senior year (1998) he went 44–1 and won the state championship
Known then for his fantastic grappling skills, he has repeatedly used submissions to defeat high level opponents time and time again throughout his extensive competitive career. In the tutorial below he sets out to explain some of the context and details that led to him submitting the very game Cheick Kongo at UFC 107 with a guillotine.
