Mir weighed in at his lightest weight since 2013 as he looked in prime condition to display why he was once the most feared heavyweight on the planet.

With his daughter Bella sitting in his corner for the very first time, Mir was confident he wasn’t going to go down with her watching on.

“I’m like, ‘I bet you if I had my daughter in the corner — now let’s see if you’re going to whoop my a** in front of my child,’” Mir said to MMA junkie.

The confidence of the former champ carried over into the opening five minutes of the bout that took place in Honolulu.

Despite a cut being opened up on the face of Mir, he twice took his opponent and looked to have won the round.

But then the tables began to turn as Ayala took control of the bout in the second round and pushed Mir into survival mode.

Ayala’s punches landed and severely opened up the cut on Mir’s face which covered his face and began dripping into his eyes.

Then with his back up against the cage and Ayala continuing to reign down heavy blows, Mir tapped out for the very first time in his mixed martial arts career.

Ayala claims the biggest win of his career, while the brutal beat down at the hands of a lesser opponent raises the questions of retirement for Mir.

After turning professional all the way back in 2001, the man from Las Vegas quickly built a solid reputation inside the Octagon.

His first seven fights as a part of the UFC saw him walk out of the cage with a 7-1 record, his one loss was a TKO.

Then in 2004 he claimed his first ever UFC Heavyweight Championship when he snapped the arm of opponent Tim Sylvia.

Unfortunately Mir was involved in a traffic accident and his time away from the Octagon saw him stripped of his belt.

Despite some key wins during his return, Mir was never able to regain the belt.

He fought Brock Lesnar in his UFC debut and submitted the “Beast Incarnate” with a perfectly timed kneebar.

But it’s his recent run that has left many wondering if it’s now time for the former champ to officially hang up the gloves.

Having not won a fight since July 2015, Mir’s last 10 fights have seen him record only two victories and his latest defeat makes it four in a row.

If it is to be the end for Mir, he amassed an incredible resume inside the UFC and will be remembered as one of the most feared heavyweights.
