I wish shit like this woulden''t come out, but I hope this is the reason he looked so bad and he's not getting punch drunk.

no excuses if he had staph he should have kept it to himself

Makes sense as to why he looked so lethargic

I don't know, to me he has looked slower in his last 4-5 fights, as well as more prone to KOs. He always took a lot of punishment, but when Fedor and Sapp were bouncing his head off the canvas and giving him a 400lb tombstone he still looked perfectly alert. Lately you can see him getting visibly dazed and wobbly... I maintain that Herring could easily have been the first to TKO him and Sylvia also had him hurt quite badly a number of times.

I think he's just getting a little punch drunk and slow from age. He's still good enough to beat pretty much anyone, and I would like to see him make another title run, but I think he also needs to start considering his health.

He did, Nog would never ever have said anything to the media. No one should look at this as Nog making an excuse, he will always take it like a man and never say a word.

If he had staph close enough to the fight they wouldn't have let him fight.

he didnt have staph during the fight so a post fight inspection wouldnt help anyway im just saying i like nog i know he didnt say this but excuses are lame especially when made by someone for you like after forrest beat shogun how everyone came out saying shogun was hurt that was stupid as hell as was this

True but Nog would never have said anything if Dana hadn't. And come on, a staph infection could seriously interfere with a persons ability to fight.

he didnt have staph during the fight just training so i agree he it couldhave hurt him in the long run but if it was that bad he would have droped out

Diego had staph during the fight with Kos, so it's bs to say he coulden't have lol.

Regardless,Mir won fair and square.
I could see if Mir had layed on top of him and subbed him were people might want to intergrate this into the reason why he lost,

But the bottom line is Mir came in with the perfect gameplan to defeat Nog.
He exposed him like no one ever has,and for that Mir gets major props in my book.

That was a nasty staph infection as well! I'd still love to see a 3rd fight between them two!
