Normally, I'd completely agree, cuz Nog can take the beatings like none other, but within the octagon, I find the refs are much more willing and amped to stop the bout prior to any potential injury and more recently than ever, we've seen some stoppages that were borderline at best. Even if somebody like Nog can really take the licking and keep on ticking, I think the umps may jump in.
I see Nog eating one in the mush by Lesnar, going downm, getting pounced on like a fat kid on a cupcake and eating twenty hammerfists and absorbing them. Can he weather them and probably go on to win the fight? Serious Possibility. Will the ref stop the fight during the Lesnar barrage?? I think that question decides the fight.
Nog/Mir II is pointless right now, cuz I think there's a general concensus that Mir lucked out against Nog and that Brock really did dislodge that horseshoe from his rectum, heck he nearly killed him, but I'd like to see Mir beat Kongo, then maybe dos Santos or Cain to get another title shot or another go at Nog, cuz I think we've seen the peak of Frank Mir.
