UFC 140 marked a rematch to Frank Mir's greatest win over Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. Following the loss, Nogueira told media that he was hurt entering the fight, fighting a bout with staph infection. For years, Mir has had to defend his win. Tonight he was able to prove that he was the better fighter becoming the first man to submit Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira ever.

Nogueira established his boxing early on and was able to stumble Mir with a combination that put him on queer street. Mir survived and locked in a kimura. Nogueira attempted to roll through but he was unable to break Frank MIr's grim. The fight ended with a chilling moment with Mir cranking Nogueira's arm, breaking it in the center of the cage. The referee was forced to stop the fight before Mir could do any more damage to Big Nog.

From Brent Brookhouse's play by play:

Frank Mir vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira - Round 1 - Jab by Nog gets in. Another jab lands for Nog. And again he gets in with it. Nog looks for a takedown which gets stuffed. Nogueira working him against the cage and Mir turns him. Mir gets the takedown into Nog's half guard. Nogueira gets up. Nice elbows by Nogueira in the clinch, and again. Big knee and a left hand. Noguiera landing hard and Mir drops! Nog with more punches and Mir manages to escape from a choke. Mir briefly on top. Mir takes the arm with a kimura. Nog won't tap. They're rolling, Nogeira still wont tap and the shoulder pops. Frank Mir wins by submission (kimura), round 1.
