Nogeiras TDD is NOWHERE near JDS. Nog practically wants the fight to go to the ground.
You didnt get it
To the topic:Mir has some good points. I found funny how he highlighted the fact that he broke Nogs arm. But I think that even when JDSīs BJJ is not at Mirīs level. He has some explosivness and quickness to get out of bad possitions. He is like a cat. I dont believe in any shape of form that Mirs top control is there to hold JDS down. I have my doubts that Cain will be able to hold JDS down at this stage of their careers.
Imho Mirs only chance is off his back when JDS will follow him there. And that is small chance because is only thing that JDS needs to avoid and he knows it.
In stand up? As much as I like Mir as a person and fighter. He has close to no chance agains JDS on feet.
