from his best in the second-round TKO. Mir doesn't want to hear that
talk a second time around.

RIO DE JANEIRO - As impossible as it may seem for a man most consider to

While "Minotauro" remains adamant that retirement from the sport never
crossed his mind despite a few recent setbacks, UFC president Dana White
admitted he was already prepared to have "the talk" with the MMA
legend, and a loss to Schaub may have meant Nogueira's end in the UFC.

fighting stops daily life.
