Before people just jump all over this please watch the interview. Mir makes some good points and has huge respect for Nog, Brock and Randy.
Although I agree with Rogan that Nog wasn't 100% I'm with Mir on the fact that no fighter ever competes 100% and if you're fit enough to fight you can't make excuses after the fight.

I'm just getting to the point where I can't stand hearing Frank Mir talk. He has this aura of cockiness about it him that just gets under my skin.

Hey Frank...let's talk about your undying love and your show of favoritism towards Miguel Torres...

I do, too.

However, I think Rogan did a fine job of posing the question that EVERYONE wants the answer to. Let' say it was someone like Cro Cop (or some other underdog) fighting Nog that night instead of Mir. You can't convince me that Mir wouldn't have asked the EXACT same question.

The only way to settle it is to have them fight again...and then a 3rd time because a healthy Nog, in my opinion, would beat Mir in a rematch. So a rubber match *would* be needed.

yeah but mir chose to reschedule his bout with brock because of an injury. I think being in the hospital 1 week before the fight because of staph and a torn meniscus constitutes a rescheduling as well.

I'd love to see a rematch and I'd pick Nog again because as he showed the other night a fit and mach ready Nog is one mean dude. I can see where Mir is coming from though.
I'd say finishing Nog is his biggest achievement to date, even bigger than winning the belt. I can't see many people doing the same because Nog didn't even look dazed when Randy connected flush and Randys dropped some big guys.
I'd be pissed if someone was down playing a big achievement I'd made in a fair match. While I agree with what Rogan said I can also see why Mir is angered by it.
I agree with you 100% though if the roles were reversed or another guy fought I wouldn't be surprised to here Mir defending Nog.

Couldn't agree more, Mir was basically speechless when Torres lost, didn't really even give credit to Bowles who is a stud IMO.

I do get the fact that he's trying to be as respectful as possible... but he should take a hard and long look in the mirror after hearing go on and on and on and oooooooooon about miguel torres. Plus, he's not a very good commentator IMO.
