Cool video, looks like Frank's trying to make himself even more dangerous off his back.

i think this is a good move for mir. i think he'll be spending alot of time on his back, which is where mir will have his best chance of finishing.

the more tools you have, the better and faster you can complete the job.

It would be awesome if this fight turned out to be a BJJ chess match, but for some reason I've got the feeling that we're going to see mostly standup fighting for five rounds or until someone (i.e. Mir) gasses.

I really don't see Nog letting this to the ground, since his stand up is also really awesome

Never say never...but, I just don't see Mir winning this fight. How many times has Big Nog been knocked out? How times has he been submitted? Most people on here know the answer to that question. Frank Mir isn't a top 5 guy imo and Big Nog has been in there with the best, and then again.
I don't see Mir bringing anything new to the table that Big Nog can't handle. Oh ya, and there's no way this one makes it the full 5 rounds.

I'm really getting a gut feeling that Mir is going to get the W. I know it would be an upset but I just can't shake the idea. I really think Mir is going to explode from the bottom with a slick sub.
