Or you'll look like a total knob for buying the Frank Mir hype.

No one is counting him out, the thing is logic points to a very high probability he will lose.

Nogueira has better striking, grappling, cardio, chin. The ground is fairly even, I give it to Nogueira however I don't think either will get a submission.

Just as I was afraid was going to happen...Nog looked slow and Mir came in looking better than he ever has.

I said I never ruled Mir out.

I wasn't expecting Nog to show up like that. He is a legend and a fantastic fighter but you can't take the beatings he has endured and shake them off. They are taking toll on his body/chin.

Honestly, I love Nogueira and he is a legend but I think it's time for him to retire.

Nogueira looked so sloppy on his feet. He made Mir look like he had the striking skills of Anderson Silva.

I have to give credit to Mir, he fought a great fight. But that was a terrible performance by Nogueira... just terrible.
