This fight has made me re-evaluate the Mir fight and although i do believe Mirs striking has improved vastly.......

I think they need to fight again to bring legitimacy to his win the first time.....Nog looked like a withered old man when he fought Mir...

Obviously there was somthing wrong....wonder what frank thinks about that


Yeah I agree, Randy wasn't that effective in the clinch, but then he didn't attempt it enough IMO. I think it could have had a cumulative affect the more he tried it. If you way up their respective skills, to me Randy comes up a little short. He needed to turn it in to a battle of wills/cardio to have the best chance of winning.

I do have to give props to Big Nog though, he fought an excellent fight.

As for the Mir fight, that absolutely, positively has to happen again! I don't think there's any question that Nog's health problems adversely affected his performance.
