This would have been a dream match up when they were in there primes, but now, I see Nog by UD because of his better stand up game.

Where will this get Nog, nowhere closer to the belt. He should have fought AA or Big Tim, or someone who would give him recognition to the average UFC fans as a top HW.

I pissed off about this stupid matchup.

i think the kongo idea is a better fight for mir and makes more sense. but there is no doubt that nogueira would murder mir, murder death kill. mir's cardio looks terrible after his recent fight he could not even talk and the fight was like 45 seconds. he is a small heavyweight for his height.

no matter what i want to see arlovski vs nogueira! that is a match i would not mind paying for.

before mirs accident he was the best hw jj guy there was in the ufc and with nog being the best in pride at the time i always wanted to see this fight. sure its a few years late but either way im all for this fight. some might say that theyd rather see nog fight aa and mir fight kongo but i like the idea of the winner of nog/mir going against the winner of aa/kongo. of the different ways to match these guys up i think this way would make for more exciting fights.

What a stupid fight IMO. What has Mir done to deserve a shot against a guy like Nog? Not a damn thing except beat a stand up fihgter. In all his other recent fights he has looked like shit. Im getting sick of the UFC feeding shit to us and trying to tell us it's lobster. Maybe they will learn after this fight turns into a 3 round borefest. Hopefully Nog makes him tap with a quickness though.

Maybe they want to feed Nog another easy fight before he gets a title shot

Mir vs. Kongo will go the same way as Mir vs. Hardonk and Hardonk maybe better on the ground then Kongo.

If it is Mir vs. Kongo, they are practically giving Mir a pay day. No wonder Mir's camp wants Kongo.

the ufc probably thinks he deserves a shot because he never lost his belt. His crappy performances were crappy....He got hit by a car...I'm suprised he came back at all after that accident. I'd like to see him get some wins under his belt but i'm sure frank feels he's ready.

It sounds like their trying to keep Nog from a title shot.

It would look bad for the UFC if Rampage came and took their light heavy weight title,and then Nog steals the Heavy weight title.

I won't say anything bout about Mir.I just hoping to see Nog against some one a bit more of a bigger name.If Mir wins though,it will probably be tough for Nog to get back in the HW title picture

kongo would get submitted very easily by frank mir in my opinion

nogueira and mir i would have to go with nogueira just because i couldnt imagine frank mir catch big nog in a submission

then again i didnt expect crocrop to lose 2 straight fights or to see shogun get submitted by forrest griffin

i would wanna watch this fight. Usually 2 guys that are submission masters have terrible fights. They both wanna be on their backs, but i guess Nog's standup is really good, but i think he has a weakchin. He got dropped both of his UFC fights, in the first round, He has lots of heart tho.
Big Nog 3rd Submission. Mir would not be able to go 5 5minute rounds.
