    I couldn´t get a better video on it, but here is the moment when Herb Dean tells Big Nog to "WATCH THE BACK OF THE HEAD" , and then he stops the gnp and goes for that guillotine. Turning moment of the fight right there.
    Just thought I´d share some thoughts with you guys.

    Nog had Mir on the ropes. He must really regret that sub attempt.

    pretty sure I remember Nog complaining about for days afterwards

    Nogs a legend no doubt but he is Brazilian, is normal

    I'm a Frank Mir fan for life.
    I hope he beats Fedor.

    Mir > Big Nog. TKOed him then broke his arm.

    The way they blur the sponsor on Mir's trunks... so lame. So so lame.

    If you watch the video, you'll see what I mean. It's just... lame.

    The Brazilians are showmen. If only they could be more American and wrestle fuck every fight to a snooze fest.

    To be fair, those shots were totally to the back of the head.

    Ridiculous comeback though, Mir looked pretty much done.

    Poor Munoz had to sit next to huge Mir fan Mitrione during that.

    I used to get like ten or twelve friends over for big cards. After that fight, at least four of them were done with MMA. It was a combo of the arm break and Rampage giving Wanderlei little extra sugar after he was out cold.

    If Nog would have just thrown a few more punches it probably would have been stopped a few seconds later.

    Crazy comeback by Mir.

    Lyoto getting KO'd by Shogun followed by Fedor getting tapped in 2 months(?) were the events that really hurt my friends. I was watching a lot of MMA alone for awhile after that.

    It's amazing to see how much the view on Nog changed over the years. He was the classy, universally respected 2nd greatest HW of all time and people claimed "Nog doesn't lose; he just runs out of time"... then he took some hard losses and turned into a massive excuse maker leaving a bad taste in the mouths of most fans. Nog, Rousey, Aldo, and Rockhold are all very sore losers

    Exactly. I can't see how people celebrate Mir's boring ass victory in this fight.

    I would say in my 20 + years as a fan of this sport....this is the fight result that infuriates me more than any. If there is one fight I wish to go back in time and tell em to keep punching or do something different its this one. Nog had it won, Mir was pretty much out....just keep on punching.

    Mir is an exception to the quintessential American fighter. Although he has his moments

    All Nog had to do was keep boxing him and he gets the easy KO. BIG MISTAKE jumping on him like that. Mir isn't just good, he's freaking huge and very strong. Like jumping on a rodeo bull.

    Ref said watch the back of the head. He didn't say "Stop punching and get your arm broke."
