Fed-up Frank Mir unloads on UFC trolls: Your life sucks and I feel bad for you (Video)

"All you people out there that wanna sit on the computer and be unhappy that your life sucks, so you think everybody else when they go out there and you see them on the side of the road and, you know your personality types - you sit there and you see that guy jogging, who's 40 pounds overweight and you make a joke, like 'yea buddy, nice try'... It's like no, that dude's out there trying. Whether he fails and the next day he doesn't show up because he's sore, but you know what, in a week he'll try again. Stop being that guy that throws insults or be that guy and be miserable and I feel bad for you because you really have the worst life of all."

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight champion Frank Mir knows the mixed martial arts (MMA) trolls were kicking him when he was down. Mir, who battles Andrei Arlovski at the upcoming UFC 191 pay-per-view (PPV) event this Saturday night (Sept. 5, 2015) in Las Vegas, Nevada (details), dropped four straight fights from 2012-14 and wasn't getting much encouragement from the combat sports community. To be fair, even UFC President Dana White was thinking it was time for the longtime veteran to call it a career, but Mir battled back to win two straight fights by way of knockout. Now that he's back and ready to make another run at the strap, the heavy-handed grappler told Fight Hub TV (via Bloody Elbow) that he's sympathetic toward the trolls who mocked him during his dry spell, simply because their lives suck. Ouch.
