People say Mir looked poorly against Nog and uses that as the basis for him not getting a title shot. However, in the end he still won impressively. Just the fact that he was able to keep his composure and still pull out a submission victory over a guy who has never been submitted speaks a lot about his worthiness for a title shot..
As for Shane Carwin what exactly did he do to deserve Mir? Yeah he beat him 2 years ago but has lost two times and been absence since then. Mir beat two legends and Roy Nelson (Solid Fighter).
You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
