Why was Nog so sensitive about what Vinny said about him?

even if Vinny was talking sh*t about him, why was he so sensitive about it?

right now he's the #1 HW in the UFC. why should he care what a young, upcoming fighter who's walking in his footsteps thinks about him... hell, he's not even on the same team as Nog!

Nog seems like a guy who doesn't talk behind someone else's back and he doesn't want them talking about him behind his back. I can totally see where he's coming from. Why should Vinny say the things he said?

Questioning someones else skill in BJJ is something I'm sure he takes personally.

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.

Pride is a huge thing in Brazilian culture too. I know its hard for some people to understand but my girls Brazilian and talking shit about someone is a huge deal to them. Especially if its behind their backs.

Ive kind of learned how to toe the line around her family lets just leave it at that.

Edit: Not neccesarily saying its right or wrong either. I think the added fact that he was Brazilian adds more fuel to the fire. You can tell Nog really did want him on his squad because he thought he was legit, at least grappling wise. Which I think added to him being upset.

Vinny's BJJ is great, but better than Nog's? Maybe in strictly BJJ competition, but I'd wager Nog's the better grappler in MMA.

How did Nog do in BJJ competitions anyway? Did he even bother with them? He's grappled against guys that have won ADCC and done just fine.

Didnt Ricco Rodriguez submit Nog in one of the competitions??

Also
i just watched the episode... NOG is being a cry baby if you ask me. he is being way too dramatic. It kind of reminded me of Rocky 5 were Rocky is talking to Tommy and is like "I ******* LOVED YOU MAN HOW COULD YOU DO THAT" haha

Scar on his back = Minotauro, so yes it's Big Nog unless I'm seeing things.

Wasn't Vinny sitting next to Machida when they were celebrating Nog's Birthday? Maybe he took it like one of his friends is talking shit behind his back. Maybe that's why he was saying "now we're enemies".
