Hunt: Mir won’t make me tap out

Mark Hunt is confident that Frank Mir won’t make him submit when they meet in the main event of UFC Fight Night 85 in Brisbane on Sunday.

Mir recently warned Hunt that should he catch him in one of his submission maneuvers, the 41-year-old would be wise to tap out or risk succumbing to serious injuries.

However, even though six of Hunt’s 10 career losses have come via submission, he firmly believes that Mir won’t be able to make him submit.

Hunt will head into the fight on the back of a TKO win over Antonio Silva in the first round at UFC 193 in November last year. Mir on the other hand lost his most recent fight at UFC 191 in September 2015 to Andrei Arlovski via unanimous decision.
