Frank Mir cut weight twice in his career and before that in highschool (unsure how many times and how much weight). He's fairly young (33) too. I think cases like his is just abuse of PEDs (unless I am unaware of something), whereas someone like Hendo is credible.
Mir's saga was pretty transparent. He found a new "strength and conditioning" program after he lost to Brock and transformed into Mir 2.0. He realized that being "enhanced" didn't do anything for his chin after being KO'd by Carwin and probably came back down to Earth (Mir 3.0) gradually via therapeutic use exemption.
