Frank Mir breaks Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira's arm in the co-main event of UFC 140: "Jones vs. Machida," which took place last night at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Mir said he would prove he was the better fighter tonight by winning in even more devastating fashion than the first time and that's exactly what he did. With his knockout win over Nogueira back at UFC 92, Mir became the first man to finish the legendary Brazilian via strikes. Now he's also the first man to submit him, as "Minotauro" tapped immediately after his arm snapped out of socket. Say what you will about Mir, that's a pretty incredible feat.
