Default mir vs nogueira at ufc 79

from: [Link View Has Been Removed. Click Here To Unlock This Content.]

With a win over Antoni Hardonk last month at UFC 74, one-time UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir (10-3 MMA, 8-3 UFC) will reportedly get a step up in competition and face Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (30-4-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) in his next fight.

TAGG Radio, a daily MMA Internet show hosted by Frank Trigg, made the announcement on today’s program, reports MMAjunkie.com contributor and fiveouncesofpain.com editor Sam Caplan.

No date for the fight was given, though a Dec. 29 UFC 79 event in Las Vegas has long been rumored as a possibility for Nogueira’s return to the Octagon.

Nogueira, a former PRIDE champion and top-ranked heavyweight contender, made his UFC debut back in July at UFC 73. Facing Heath Herring, Nogueira suffered a head kick that floored the Brazilian fighter. Inexplicably, Herring allowed his opponent to return to his feet and regain his composure, and Nogueira rebounded for a unanimous-decision victory.

The submission specialist was considered an immediate contender when he signed on with the UFC earlier this year, and it stands to reason that if he does indeed take on Mir and pull out a victory, he could be a line for a title shot in mid-2008.

His reported opponent Mir was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident three months after winning the UFC’s heavyweight belt in 2004. He broke his femur bone in two places and tore numerous tendons in and around his knee when a car T-boned him. Mir didn’t fight for 16 months while he nursed his injuries, and his return to the Octagon has been a mixed bag thus far.

He returned to action in February 2006 and suffered a TKO loss to Marcio Cruz. In his next bout, he had gained noticeable weight and won a sluggish and lackluster unanimous decision over Dan Christison at UFC 61. He suffered a quick first-round TKO loss to Brandon Vera at UFC 65 but defeated Hardonk with a quick submission last month.

In an emotional post-fight interview, Mir said he had his priorities in order and was looking forward to regaining his championship form.

I think Mir is a very underrated heavyweight that needs to re-prove to the fans that he is motivated and wants to be classified as a contender!

I would like to see him rematch against Vera. Pre-motorcycle accident Frank mir would have easily beaten Brandon Vera.

I was never impressed with Mir, if it takes you 3 rounds to beat Wes Sims, you really aint that good. Nog will win this with his boxing...

Nog takes this without any major problems. Mir is past his best, he was always overrated even at his peak.imo

people also said big nog was gonna walk through heath herring in his last fight. nog almost got his head taken off, and finished up with a very sloppy decision victory, taking a line from gsp i was not impressed with his performance.
i give mir a pretty good chance in this fight, standing and i'm sure he knows enough about the ground game 2 keep it interesting there as well.
but i'm out.
peace.

Fact is, Mir really isnt that good. I don't think he ever was. If it wasn't for Fedor, Nog would still be the #1 HW in the world......
