I thought Nog over reacted... also it seemed like Nog's team over exaggerated about what was said. I missed some of the episode, so I could be wrong.. but were they referring to the convo mir and vinny had? If so, they said vinny was saying this to him.. they made it sound like vinny was going around running his mouth to everyone about how nog isnt that good at bjj... but in reality he was just talking to mir and didnt even say anything that bad.

EbonGear has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I can understand having pride, but Nog carrying on like they were breaking up man-love just made me cringe.

Only thing I know is that Vinny is the biggest LHW D-bag on the show. And he SO got what was coming for him.

IMO he disrespected Nogs jiu jutsu (he said something thet Nog wasn't a high level practitioner AT ALL!) and appearently Nog sought it fit to confront him in such a manner. Have you ever seen Nog angry? I mean, this is the first time for me so I think he knew what he was doing (and from his perspective he had all the rifht to be mad.

I rewatched, he didnt say this. Do you have a source? I've read all the blogs from the fighters posted so far.. and none of them claim he said this. Most of them dont even know what Nog was talking about.

Vinny said Nogs BJJ is Basic, and nogs team members took it the wrong way. Basic is fine.. the best JJ grapplers in the world probably use basic JJ (no flying armbars etc lol).

Also pure JJ is irrelevent.. vinnys bjj creditably are probably higher then nogs... alot of people were asking him about his accomplishments.. then nogs accomplishments.. comparing them etc..

I can see how a convo like this could be easily misunderstood / exaggerated to make vinny look bad.

I think the cultural differences are not playing out well for us North Americans. I kind of get where Nog was coming from, and why he kept pressing the issue.

Personally, I liked it. It says a lot about the Brazilians and honor!

Regardless, Nog made his point, and Vinny knows it. As for who would win, Nog would eat Vinny alive. Vinny may have a blacker belt, but he has NO MMA at all.

Something about "brown belt" and Nog not competing leading to technical demise, sorry if I exaggerrated.

Only thing I know is Nog, in his mind, had the right to be mad.

Plus Vinny is better then him in BJJ so him saying that probably hurts his pride a bit. Plus I'm sure he doesn't want to be disrespected.
lol you have over 8000 posts and you come out with crap like this? made me laugh a bit irl.

also what's your obsession with new jersey? just because you come from there doesn't mean you have to love everything about it. really puzzles me when people act that way

I don't feel that Big Nog over reacted.

That dude should have nothing bad to say about Nog under those circumstances. Vinny is trying to get IN to the UFC, Nog has already accomplished being a PRIDE champ and a UFC Interim Champ.

It probably hurt Nog's feelings that this guy is talking about him like that. And from his perspective, it hurts team morale.

Plus, as accomplished as Nog is, he's not talking any crap. Plus he's in a setting where he can't just kick the guy's ass for saying it.

BTW Mir is a nerd. That dumb, uncomfortable giggle he has everytime he talks to someone on his team is making me crazy.

I think the reaction was fine, Vinny was acting like his friend and was trying to get some tips and rolled with Nog because he liked him.

Even if Vinny was on the other team Nog would help him out a bit and take him under his wing (maybe after the show it seemed)

Brazilian are very patriotic and back up each other, that shit talking Vinny did with Mir was very disrespectfull IMO. Nog seems to be someone really straight foward and serious about that kind of stuff. That justify his reaction pretty well
