Didn't really want this rematch.

I think Big Nog gets it taken too him again, Nog was getting tagged pretty good by Schaub.

Mur TKO.

I don't understand why they would book this fight for Toronto if a Japan card is coming up. I mean... I guess if Nog were to win they could still have him fight in Japan but they should save his start power for the Japan card.

I hope Nog tries to engage in a ground war because I feel that's where his best shot lies at taking out Mir.
In the first fight it looked like Frank did everything possible not to go to the ground and I think that shows the respect he has for Nogueira's ground game.
I'm probably gonna go with Mir on this but rooting for Nog all the way.

I'll be rooting for Nog, but i think Mir takes him out in similar fashion, unfortunately.

What is the point of this rematch, I mean seriously why would mir even want to rematch Nog. He beat him convincingly the first time, I just don't get it. I want to see new fights not rematches of fights that weren't close or controversial. They should have done Overeem vs mir, and Big nog vs Brock.

Nog should perform better than the first time, but im still not sure he has what it takes to win this.

Mir by UD, but i wouldnt be surprised to see non-staph infection Nog win the exchanges on the feet.
