I read that and thought 2 things.

#1 This guy is fantastic at making excuses

#2 The UFC HW division really used to suck.

Frank Mir is not a top 10 HW and was never all that good to begin with.

This guy has two wins over guys with crap BJJ and now he's back.

I like Mir, but Nog is going to break his arm in two.

I'm just trying to figure out if there will be more or less angst on this board if Mir wins compared to the other upsets we frequently see.

I always laugh when an mmaforum annointed one gets beaten after reading months and months of "XXX has this locked up"

Pretty good read but everytime he lost it was because "He wasn't cleared by doctors"

I think im the only one who thinks Frank Mir is going to take this. I think its going to be Triangle choke in the first round.

I will not lie to you...

I will go f***ing crazy if Mur beats Nog.

It would turn my entire f***ing world upside down.

But yeah, that is funny. When Chuck lost to Rashad, Forrest beat Shogun, Rampage beat Henderson (that shocked me, anyway)...

This would IMO be up there with Serra vs GSP.

Forrest vs Shogun I saw ways for Forrest to win not the way he did but ways.

Rashad vs Chuck wasn't that shocking at all.

Mir vs Nogueira would baffle me.

I noticed that a lot on this forum compare the fighter's resume and think this is a fool proofed way to predict if someone will defeat the other. That is only one way to help predict. I think that this fight can be taken from a different prospective. With Nog, you know what to expect, he is resilient. With Mir on the other hand, has been able to rise to the level of competion and win decisively when faced with top competition.

I realize that that might not be enought to convince you. For only a Mir victory will. However, my point is that Mir is that rookie (that most of you would look at that has never really proven himself) that has found a way to victory.

Well I for one can recognize consistency in a champion. A person that rises to the competion.
