I think Nog is better than Mir. If they fight a third time Nog will be the Vegas favorite, and i think his style of fighting matches up better against the rest of the division than Franks. Flame on.
Why do you say the Vegas odds would favor Nogueira¿ Mir is 2-0 with 2 finishes against him and every legitimate rankings have Mir above Nogueira.
Because he was kicking his ass in one sided fashion in thefght where he didnt have staph infection.
Thats a heavier, more consistent variable to factor in then Nog showing up sick or getting caught in a similar transition/finish on the ground.
Also, Mir has worse wrestling than Nog has TDD, which in all likelihood means the fight stays on its feet for a long period of time. Mir had no answer for the Jab and he was getting blasted in the clinch.
Vegas will weigh a one-sided performance over an awesome submission against a top level Bjj BB. Because theyre in the business of making money. And the smart money is on the fighter who performed better. Though Noglost, he performed better.
