Mir: I have big edge against Nogueira standing

source: MMAInterviews

"Nogueira is still a very tough guy. A lot of people are on two sides of the extreme. They either think the first fight was a fluke or that he should retire. I see someone who is going to be extremely motivated who wants to get revenge, so I don't look to overlook him at all. He's a very legitimate submission specialist, obviously. Even when he's 80-years old he's gonna be dangerous on the ground. On our feet I feel I still have a very big advantage due to my athletic ability and I'm a little more fluid. Being on our feet is a great advantage (for me) and less risk of something bad happening there than on the ground."

Mir is going to KO him. Again. Sucks that the UFC never set up Nog vs CC 2.

Nog's just too slow now.He was never super fast in his prime but like Coleman said, had short accurate punches. Mir made a good observation in Nog/Randy in that Nog was still getting caught but Randy doesnt hit that hard really and is much smaller than Mir.

Mir is gonna destroy Nog. Mir is no Brendan Schaub. This fight is gonna look like the first one, except that's it's gonna end earlier. Mir has improved a lot since the first fight. He's evolved. Nog, on another hand, has been trying to get to the level of his peak as much as he can. The problem is that Nog is a shot fighter while Mir is better than ever.Don't let the Schaub victory fool you, Nog is not back.
