Honestly Nog took Bob Sapps 370 lb. hammer fists, Fedors best right hands and Crocops best high and soccer kicks.....and Mir has the power to stop a healthy NOG?.....
Nog is 8-2 since his last Fedor fight. A razor thin split to Josh Barnett (which he avenged decisivly) that i thought he won and a loss to Mir. And beleive me the Staff played a huge roll !( google the effects of staff and antibiotics)
Nog will own the HW tittle within the next year...for sure
Someone's been doing their MMAth homework. Here's some numbers for ya, it's 2010 not 2002.
An immediate rematch with a healthy Nog would have been a very fair fight, but a match with a newly roided Mir would produce similar (not exact!) results to UFC 92.
Granted both men are 100% neither of them would pull off a sub, Mir isn't foolish enough to roll with Nog. It will be another stand-up fight and I'd give the edge to Mir, he'll do his best to keep distance and keep the fight from falling to the ground. Although Nog sure as hell won't be stopped next time.
Mir by UD, NOT (T)KO/Sub.
