Really I think Mir's stand up is better then Nog's. I also say that Mir's big advantage against most fighters he faces is on the ground, and that is going to be nul and void against Nog. This fight is in the air for me but I think Nog is a monster in regard to taking punishment, then pulling something out. So I went with Nog. In the Couture fight Randy is just all around better and the only way I see him losing is by being taken down and Brock's big ass fist landing square on Randy's jaw. I don't see Randy allowing that to happen thought and also see randy taking this past the first round and Brock running out of gas. I don't see Randy losing this. Really I see randy beating Nog too. I don't see Randy being submitted at this time in his carrier. I say Randy all the way. Randy wins his next 2 no doubt in my mind. I also see the UFC allowing Randy to fight Fedor after that. The reason I say that is that was Randy's main reason for the contract dispute from the way I saw it. Also Randy and Fedor's get together make me feel like there is something in the works behind the doors their. Who knows but that's my opinion.

Wow you think Mir has better stand up than Nog? Big Nog has great boxing skills and Mir has never really posed a threat to someone stand up wise except when he KOd Sims.

spot on, Mir has to go a longway for his standup to match any top tier HW.

I guess I'm wrong but from what I've seen Nog just takes beatings on his feet. He can take a punch which is good because he gets hit a lot. My statement could easily be contested about Mir having better stand up then Nog.

Man Mir isnt getting any credit here, Mir is very dangerous on the ground and much more aggressive in his submission attempts then Nog, although I think Nog is the favorite personally I put Nog/Mir a 60/40 advantage to Nog, while most people seem to feel Mir has zero chance.

I'm assuming that you haven't seen that many of Big Nog's fights?

The Sylvia fight was definitely the exception, not the rule.

I HOPE Randy beats Brock (I'm really pissed at Brock for clowning on Herring at the end of his fight. lol), but I think Brock is going to steamroll through Randy.

Which is okay in a way, because if Randy isn't holding a belt, it will be slightly more appealing to the UFC to have one-time only fight with Fedor against Randy. That way when Fedor wins, he doesn't take the HW title with him. lol

But yeah, I think it will end up being Brock getting subbed by Big Nog.

The fact that Mir is in this mix is a joke IMO. He's going to look terrible against Nog.

Other than Fedor or Randy, every other HW in world will look terrible against Nog. Mir is a solid HW with brutal sub game and average stand up. Other than Werdum there is no-one that would deserve that fight, plus Werdum already lost against Nog.
