THQ’s very own Shamownage breaks down this weekend’s Co-Main Event for UFC 140 based on the stats deployed in their upcoming UFC Undisputed 3 title.
With Mir and Nogueira set to meet in the Octagon for a second time this weekend we thought it would be a great opportunity to break down their stats in UFC Undisputed 3!
Mir – 72 Cardio, 73 Speed, 86 Strength, 77 Footwork
Noguiera – 83 Cardio, 75 Speed, 76 Strength, 83 Footwork
So according to their in game attributes, Nogueira has the edge the longer the fight goes on, but Mir will be a much stronger fighter earlier on in the fight. A pretty fair assessment.
Mir – 81 Standing Strike Offense, 74 Takedown Defense, 81 Ground Grapple Top Offense, 87 Submission Offense, 86 Submission Defense
Nogueira – 73 Standing Strike Defense, 73 Standing Strike Defense, 76 Takedown Offense, 87 Submission Offense, 90 Submission Defense
Mir has the edge in striking but outside of that their stats are very close. Both fighters have excellent jiu jitsu and solid takedown defense/offense. The key for Nogueira winning the fight is probably to get the fight to the ground as he has a very slight edge in submission offense, but if Mir can keep the fight standing it very well may be a repeat of their first meeting in the Octagon.
The only way to really find out how accurate these stats are is to make sure you tune in to UFC 140 Live on PPV this Saturday!
