UFC 140 Video: Frank Mir Compares Breaking Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira's Arm With Twisting Bag of Potato Chips

Sherdog's Jordan Breen was able to sit down with Frank Mir following his UFC 140 arm breaking submission victory over Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and talk about the fight. Mir gave insight into what the actual submission was like among other things during the roughly ten minute interview.

Here's the video:


From the video:

That's the great thing about submissions, you build up your strength and your power in the gym, but it's like having a lever, you want to get the lever in the right spot and use proper technique and then when it's in the right spot you want to jump up and down on it to get as much force as you can into it. It's a good combination of both strength and technique.

So when I grabbed it and started cranking it just crushed like twisting a bag of potato chips.

That's a special kind of graphic right there.

Mir's win should have him positioned for either a title shot or title eliminator in the very near future.
