UFC 140:Mir Books Big Nog Rematch


The UFC has booked a heavyweight rematch between former champions Frank Mir and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira set for the December 10th show.

UFC 140 is set to take place in Toronto on December 10 from the Air Canada Centre. The only main card bouts confirmed for the event at this time is set between Rory MacDonald vs. Brian Ebersole and now Frank Mir vs. “Big Nog”.

“Both men are known as two of the premiere submission specialists in the division but have shown dangerous striking skills as well,” said UFC president Dana White.

Frank Mir was last seen in a victory over Roy Nelson at UFC 130. The former champion has gone an impressive 6-2 in his last 8 UFC outings only dropping fights to Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin.

Nogueira reemerged onto the UFC’s heavyweight platform with a decisive knockout victory over Brendan Schaub at last month’s UFC 134 card. Prior to the Schaub victory, the long-time MMA superstar was out of action for a year after dropping 2 out of three fights to Cain Velasquez and Frank Mir.

    Mir was scared the first time. This time, he will be too cocky. Nog by decision.

  7. Lex w says:

    Mir got it if he shows up to fight

  8. JOSH C says:

    i felt sorry for nog when he beat schuab.. casue it ment he would then have to face the elite of the division. i dont think nog can hang with mir, dos santos, carwin, cain and overeem, he should just take gate keeper fights to keep his record and chin in tact

  9. Robzen says:

    A healthy Nog this time and a fit Mir equals a real battle. Equal on the ground, gotta give the standup edge to Nog. Nog wins.

  10. Steven says:

    Mirs goin to sleeeeeep… zzzzz

  11. James Wolfe says:

    If Mir shows up ready to fight, he will win, no doubt about it.
