Who do you think will win......

Nog or Mir


I am going for Nog because mir is good but nog could tko mir in 4 rounds and mir maybe could submit nog but nog has great ground skills so i am giving this one to NOG

nog all the way unless some freak thing happens like a cut or injury.....lets get one thing straight...mir has great ground skills for a heavyweight, nog has great ground skills period, no matter what weight.....he is leaps and bounds above mir....his boxing is excellent, escpially for his style of fighting....mir has improved standup but still subpar...im not hating on mir, i like mir, hes a quality heavy, but he is not top 10 and he has nothing to offer nog in terms of a real tough challenge...i predict 2nd rd stoppage sub or tko....i do look forward to the fight cuz the first rd should be exciting

Nog where ever this fight takes place, Nog in my mind is a better striker than Mir, and has a slightly better ground game.

Mir is terribly overrated, why does he get so much praise? because he beat a 1-0 Brock Lesnar who was in his second mma fight?
Until Mir proves he's a consistent fighter he's going to be terribly overrated in my mind.


Nog wins via whatever he feels like.

I agree. NOG is leaps and bounds above frank mir. He's got superior striking and a better submission game. I would give mir a slight edge in take downs and positional dominance because i think he'll be stronger but that shouldn't be enough to over come nogs bjj.

Either Nog will sub mir in the first or this will be one of those surprising standup battes that happen between two JJ guys all too often. Either way, Nog wins it, then goes on to beat Lesnar.

I agree Nog will win this but I think the Lesnar fight would be a lot more competitive than most people think. Someone else on another thread said that Nog is known for leaving himself open while standing like he did against Herring and Sylvia, and if he does that against Brock he WILL get knocked out.

I dont see Nog getting knocked out. He might get dropped, but he recovers so quick. He will beat Mir and then beat Brock.
