UFC 140: Frank Mir snaps Minotauro Nogueira's shoulder in Round 1Posted on December 10, 2011, 09:49 PM by Anton Gurevich
Frank Mir was getting outclassed by Nogueira in stand-up, with the Brazilian legend punishing his arch-nemesis with perfectly-timed punches at the fence. However, when the action went down to the ground, it was Frank Mir who displayed incredible skill and versatility.
Nogueira unleashed a Guillotine Choke attempt, but Mir easily rolled over the Brazilian straight into a Kimura shoulder lock. Nogueira was in a bad position to escape from the lock, but still refused to tap out, as the 260-pound Mir was pilling the pressure.
Nogueira finally tapped out when his shoulder snapped, as the referee Herb Dean rushed in to stop the action. Frank Mir gave his victory speech with Nogueira still down on the canvas, possibly getting prepared to leave the arena on a stretcher.
Frank Mir is now 16-5 in MMA.
