Nogs a cool guy but in his last few fights he hasn't looked as great as he used to. Back in pride he was second best only to Fedor and there is not one ounce of shame in that, but during his last few fights he hasn't looked anywhere near as dominant as he did in Pride. Yeah he used to take a beating an always fought in tough wars but he always looked like he knew what was going on.
I don't want people to get the wrong end of the stick and think I'm flaming him but he hasn't looked as impressive since joining the UFC. Against Herring he looked his best since joining but still didn't look like the Nog from Pride. I hope its just him adjusting to a new environment and not the beginning of the end.
That being said I still think Nog would pull Lesnar's arm off if they fought. and could beat almost any of the HW in the UFC but I think his loss to Mir was because Mir fought the better fight. Had quicker hands and moved a hell of a lot more.
Nog didn't look much different to the other fights he has had since joining the UFC just this time Mir capitalized when he looked rocked.
All that being said Mir looked seriously impressive and hopefully he's back to his best.
I'm pretty sure I repeated myself a lot then!
Anyway I was more impressed by how good Mir looked.
