Mir doesn't have the best jits, but his ability to finish it once he gets the limb is second-to-none.
I was thinking the same thing after the fight.
Rogan's comment about Nog's jiu jitsu being "on another level" might not be totally false despite this fight.
When it comes to position, there are guys out there better than Mir. What Mir is has is an absurd killer instinct with submissions. When he latches on to a limb or your neck...good luck.
Mirs BJJ is second to none....Sorry but thats true...Never been subbed and if you ever hear him commentating on a fight it will tell you he is the best...I been saying it...And I think to say its not better than Nogs is a joke he just broke him off a new arm...
There more to BJJ than just position....Some guys will get a position they know isnt correct to bait someone into something...Mir is the best in BJJ in HW...
Werdum's BJJ is absolutely better than Mir's, whether or not you think Nog's is.
Again, I'm looking at this in parts. Submissions and positions. Positionally, I think Nog is better. When Mir had him down, Nog was on his way to sweeping him until Mir was forced to stand up.
What I'm basically saying is that Mir has better submissions but not better at positions. Who's better overall depends on how you look at it. Some people tout "Position before submission." Thats the old school thought. Now guys are starting to give up position to secure submissions. Its dangerous, but isn't finishing the whole point?
Also, just so you know, Big Country beat Mir in a straight jiu jitsu match. On points. If you CAN"T get a submission, guess what wins?
