Frank Mir isn't getting any love from Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fans ahead of his heavyweight showdown against Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva at UFC Fight Night 61 this Sunday night (Feb. 22, 2015) in Porto Alegre, Brazil (results here).

The 35-year-old Mir comes into his meeting with the Brazilian giant on a four-fight losing streak and has seen his once illustrious Octagon career reduced to one liners by mixed martial arts (MMA) fans on Twitter. Mir's last UFC win came against another Brazilian, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, at UFC 140 back in December 2011.

Below are some of the most hilarious tweets from the #lasttimemirwon hashtag (via PDLMMA):

Current undefeated women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey was just a burgeoning star in Strikeforce when the former two-time heavyweight champion corralled his last victory.

Former WEC/UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz has endured an injury-riddled fight career ever since Mir hit his snag. Coincidence? I think not.

Current 135-pound champion T.J. Dillashaw was finished by John Dodson in The Ultimate Fighter Season 8 finale.

Affliction, once a popular brand of poser MMA fans and a defunct fight promotion, fell from grace. Don't be sad, Tyron Woodley.

The last time Mir won was also the beginning of light heavyweight champion Jon Jones' title reign.

Former PRIDE two-division champion Dan Henderson was still capable of knocking fools senseless.

Two of the world's best professional boxers were still on winning streaks.

Long before Nike or Reebok ever began sponsoring the UFC's best, K Swiss was still a viable player when Mir was still winning.

All the losing has seen the notable Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioner fall from contention and out of the top 10 in the heavyweight rankings (see them here). Mir appears to have succumbed to father time and is now in the twilight of his Octagon career.

And, oh by the way, #LastTimeBigfootWon? A knockout victory over Alistair Overeem at the UFC 156 pay-per-view (PPV) event over two years ago in "Sin City."
