    Mir has beat some quality opponents but he's been owned by lesser opponents. The trait his opponents had in his big name wins was a weakness in submission defense. There's just not a lot big wins on his resume at all.

    He was absolutely owned by Pe de Pano, likely 205 Vera and 205 Ian Freeman. You have to think if Cruz could destroy him as he did, Minotauro would also have his way with Mir.

    Conversely, no one without a huge name in the sport has beat Nogueira. His wins read like a who's who of the sport.

    On top of that, I haven't seen a more likeable fighter than Nogueira. I have always admired his skill, but he's made a life-long fan of me on the basis of his overall decency. I hope Rodrigo stomps the proverbial mudhole in Mir's arse.
    I heart Jazzy B. White.

    Couldn't agree more Dingo. And good use of "proverbial", which is my favorite word.

    Dingo,

    Seriously, Nog is like the nicest person ever.

    I think Nog is a really good guy, but I also think that some of the "nicest ever" sentiment actually comes from his lack of English language skills. People who don't speak the language very well generally come off as being more 'sheepish' and approachable. The negative aspects of a personality don't tend to come through as much. Nog was a bit more harsh when speaking in his native tongue to Vinny than I bet it would've come off had he been speaking English.

    And Dingo not only used 'proverbial' but combined it with 'arse' in the same sentence ... kudos.

    But he likes hugs! That's why he seems so nice. And Dingo wins poster of the year for this thread.
