The only way I see Mir winning is somehow getting into a dominating position, something like this:
-Mir and Nog clinch against the cage
-Nog tries to throw knees, but falls over
-Mir lands in side control or half-guard
-With Nog pressed against the cage (arm trapped?), Mir lands a flurry of weak punches and Dan Miragliotta stops the fight
That's just about the only way I see Mir winning. I give Mir about a 15% chance of winning because personally I don't think that the above situation is that unlikely. Mir isn't a dumb fighter, I'm pretty sure he would know his situation. All it takes is a flurry of punches on Nog for a referee stoppage (everyone except Yves Lavinge, best ref in the UFC).
