About subbing Traven: MMA BJJ and pure BJJ are 2 totally different things.
Last time Nog faced a great ground fighter, he beat him by UD.
Nogueira has faced guys like Werdum and Barnett, and he beat both of them (Avenging his loss to Josh), what makes you think Mir will sub the guy? I mean, seriously, dude got severely whomped by Cruz, who I love, but Cruz is not Nogueira.
Griffin vs Shogun is a bad comparison, since Forrest had better stand-up, was great on the ground and was way bigger than Shogun. Why idiots thought Shogun would easily beat him, I have no idea.
With Nog vs Mir, Nog is better in every category, except promo cutting, but that's not going to help Frank when they fight. Nog's the better striker, has better cardio, more heart, can take punishment and has a better ground game.
