I can see him submitting Fedor if it ever went to the ground. Fedor only weakness is being caught too easy in subs.

Beating nog though.... unless he has some weird ass rubber guard no way in hell.

he wont sub Fedor. Nog couldnt sub Fedor, and neither will Rickson.

and when has Fedor ever been caught in subs? hes NEVER been subbed so that doesnt really make sense.

Shogun is my homeboy.

Hes never tapped. There is a difference. Fedor does a good job defending off Subs, but you can't break all of them, only a matter of time.

Babalu has
Mark Hunt has
Coleman has
Haseman has
Nog has more than once...

There are probably more out there, but to say Rickson doesnt have the possibility to sub Fedor is just incorrect.

Sounds like your contradicting yourself a bit here man. you say hes weakness is being caught in subs, but then you say he does a good job defending them?

Rickson hasnt proved anything at all against anyone. hes like the unicorn of MMA, no one has seen him against top tier fighters..

i honestly doubt he could sub Fedor.

Shogun is my homeboy.

nah man. Fedor gets put into submissions from his opponents a lot more than people realize, we can agree on that.

But until now Fedor has slipped or powered out of them. He is good at breaking submissions, but not as good as avoiding them in the first place.

If does Fedor does lose, it will probably from a BJJ artist. My point is sooner or later, hes going to be put into one he won't be able to move out of.

Are you guys joking Rickson would beat both Nogueira's in a handicap match.

Haha but honestly in BJJ Rickson is probably better however in MMA Nogueira would destroy him.

Rickson isn't a good MMA fighter never was.

Any solid MMA grappler would beat him in his prime.

I think Nogueira would take it, I have yet to see Rickson defeat a decent (at least in my opinion) opponent.
