Don't worry guys, Mir will get another pep talk from his wife which will fix everything, give him superpowers to beat Nog, make him invisible, able to walk on water, etc.

It did seem like a rather off-the-wall comment, so as was said, maybe Mir was just upset after losing like he did, to a man with what we were told was little to no soccer experience. Still, I've noticed that Mir is taking little digs at Nog here and there, while Nog is only ever a friendly mofo. You really get an idea for who these guys are when they serve as coaches on TUF.

Mir and athletic should never be used in the same sentence.

Wow, Mir has really lost all respect from this show. Not only about his comment towards Nog and how he's "200 times the better athlete" but then calling the guys on Team Nogueira losers and saying how they'll never make it and all that shit just because they were cheering on their coach.

People can't blame editing or anything else for Mirs comments. When he says he's 200 times the athlete than Nogueria, and how he's better at him than anything or some crap, that's being a complete toolbag.

You're just a cook...

Honestly I think Mir is just trying to sell the fight and to steal a prowrestling term he is trying to play the heel but failing miserably.

I don't think even think Mir would have the nerve to script it by saying how he's 200 times the better athlete. It's like Billy Miles saying he's 200 times the better grappler than BJ Penn.

I mean I think this is just Mirs personality. Making excuses for your fighters, calling the other fighters on the other team losers doesn't have anything to do with the fight. Let's not pretend Mir didn't act this way before the show. He's just simply a tool.

yaya! Someone thinks just like me!

Tbh, the way Nog's boxing, cardio and MMA BJJ looks like I'd say that Nog is actually pretty athletic! Just not explosive.

Also, if Mir were to beat Nogueira, I would cry. Hard.

I lost what little respect i had for Mir tonight. Unbelievable what he said about being 200 times the runner, jump higher, move faster then Nog it must be a mixture of crack and Sudafed because he can't actually think that.

Dana should have let Mir choose the event so he could have destroyed Nog in a hot-dog eating contest.

^This, and also the differences in the changing rooms after the fights. Every time any of Mir's guys loses a fight, Mir's all over him afterwards telling him how it's all his fault and criticizing him. When one of Nog's guys have lost, Nog never points any fingers, just tries to get everybody's mood back up for the next fight. It seems like Mir's still struggling with his own self confidence, trying to blame or criticize someone else every time things don't go his way. Kind of like he was one of the new guys on TUF rather than a former UFC champ.

Some people were hesitant about whether it was a good idea to have Nog on the show since his English speaking skills are limited, but he's been portrayed in such a positive way in every episode, that I think it will really boost his popularity among UFC fans who perhaps didn't know much about him before this TUF season.
