Mir vs. Nogueira II Wiki Update Wiki

The eleventh bout and co-main event of UFC 140 featured Frank Mir rematching Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in the heavyweight division. When they first met at UFC 92, Mir defeated Nogueira via second round knockout. However, Nogueira claimed he had been suffering from a staph infection during that fight which had lead to bad blood between the two.


Nogueira landed a quick jab and pressed the action throwing combinations. Nogueira moved into the clinch but was reversed by Mir, who threw a nice knee to the body. The pair tumbled to the ground with Mir on top in half-guard. Nogueira quickly got back to his feet and Nogueira threw an elbow in the clinch, then another, landing powerfully. Nogueira landed a strong right hand that had Mir in deep trouble, falling face forward to the ground. Mir ate some punches to the side of the head, Nogueira was warned about hitting the back of the head, attacked for an anaconda choke, and ended up on his back. Nogueira, looking to transition to Mir's back, lost position and Mir locked on a kimura. Nogueira was in deep trouble with his shoulder badly out of place until it broke completely in a terrible sight.


At 3:38 of the first round, "Big Nog" finally tapped out. Referee Herb Dean had come close to stopping the fight, but in his words Nogueira had earned the right to determine if he could continue or not.

"Now I'm the first person to knock him out, and the first person to submit him... I was stunned... he caught me... I kept flat, chest-heavy, and was able to break it... patience, I train a lot with Mike Whitehead... it really is about the finesse of waiting for something to happen, in the past I would rush things and I would lose it... I honestly hope that Nogueira is okay, I idolize him, at our size this is the game you play."


Following the bout, Nogueira was expected to have healed in time for a bout with Cheick Kongo at UFC 149, but was forced to delay until UFC 153 in his native Brazil. Mir would go on to unsuccessfully challenge Nogueira's student Junior dos Santos, for the UFC Heavyweight Championship.
