Round 1—Both guys look very steady coming in. Great kick for Tito start followed up by a nice uppercut. Nice dirty boxing by Tito trying to wear him down. Little Nog lands a left hook followed by a barrage of punches about 3:30 in. Knee by Little Nog crumbles Tito. Ortiz is able to pull guard and defend intelligently for a bit.

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Frank Mir
Round 1—21 pound advantage for Mir in a heavyweight fight. Good jab by Nog with a takedown attempt negated by Mir. Up against the cage in the clinch for a little while and some dirty boxing by both. Frank succeeds in a takedown and into half guard, but quickly gets back up, and back to some dirty boxing. Huge jab combo by Nog lands Mir in a world of hurt, and Mir desparately clings to life as Nog lands some big punches.
Almost looks like Mir is out, so Nog goes for a guillotine choke. Somehow Mir reverses and ends up on top and breaks the choke. Mir slips into side control with a 2 on 1 on Nog’s right arm just when it looks like Nog is going to get guard back. Mir goes for the kimura and Nog rolls, Frank rolls with him with the lock still tightly in place. Mir uses his great strength to put Nog’s arm all the way behind his back, and the fight is ended when you see Nog’s shoulder literally snap from the kimura. Instant replay not for the faint of heart. Use the DVR at your own discretion.
Result—Mir via TKO in Round 1
