On Feb. 2, 2008, Frank Mir tapped out The Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar. On December 27, 2008, Mir knocked out Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira to win the UFC Heavyweight Championship. On Dec. 10, 2011, he broke Nogueira's arm. But despite these amazing accomplishments, Mir has one more ferocious challenge ahead of him: Stop Sharknado

On July 31, 2016, Mir will appear in Sharknado: The 4th Awakens, on SyFy at 5 p.m. PST. Mir joins an all-star cast of Hollywood celebrities.

Whether it's Alistair Overeem, Junior Dos Santos or Brock Lesnar, Mir has faced some stiff challenges in his career. And from the looks of it, stepping onto the Hollywood set will be an upgrade from fighting a man with a giant sword tattooed across his chest.

Some of the celebrities appearing alongside Mir include Las Vegas entertainer Wayne Newton, Motley Crue's Vince Neil, Dog The Bounty Hunter, Baywatch's Gena Lee Nolin and David Hasselhoff, and Stacey Dash, a conservative pundit and star of Clueless. Ian Ziering, who appeared in the first three movies, and the former star of Beverly Hills, 90210, model and actresses Cheryl Tiegs and Tara Reid.

Mir will play the head of security for the Shark World Hotel. Despite his appearance in the low-budget, made-for-TV film, at least Mir is fighting fake sharks and not men acting like fake sharks.
