Lil Nog can pull it off IMO he has a 41% chance of victory.
I agree. He still has the tools to win this fight. He has the ability to hurt Rashad and the ability to submit Rashad. I could see him hurting Rashad on the feet and finishing on the ground.

I think Rashad takes this so incredibly easily. Phil Davis and Ryan Bader both made Lil Nog look silly. Nog also probably should have lost to Jason Brilz. Yet he he has a chance to beat Rashad Evans (who is far better than everyone listed above)? No chance.

Tito was a late replacement for the Rashad fight. So not sure how much that really counts.

I don't care about rankings. And it is true that most everyone has a fight lined up. But I just don't care for the matchup. Lil Nog used to be in plenty of exciting fights....they should use him as such. They have no problem putting Shogun in exciting fights. Shogun never gets true wrestlers.

I just feel Lil Nog has a little PRIDE history. Other matchups would be much more exciting.

Joe Silva does a great job, but I mean he could have shuffled the pieces a little better. Phil/Forrest? Hendo/Machida? Rashad/Lil Nog? None of those are fun matchups...at least in my opinion.

Bader/Rashad
Lil Nog/Hendo
Phil/Machida
Forrest/Bonnar

Those seem like better matchups.

Or maybe I just really like the Hendo/Lil Nog matchup

You thought they made him look silly? Really?

Didn't Nog stuff like Davis' first 6 or 7 TD attempts?

Rashad via UD. He will dominate this with his amazing wrestling. Not expecting a finish though.

Lil Nog should meet Glover Texeira.

Rashad should meet Hendo whenever he is ready.

OR

Rashad could also get the winner of Gustafssen-Shougun Rua.

I don't understand why they don't make Machida/Rashad 2 if Rashad wants that fight. Why not?

I really don't like the Machida/Hendo idea that seems like it will be reality. I like Machida, but I am afraid it will be Machida/Rampage all over again.

I wish TUF would just leave. TUF sucks. They wanted Page/Sonnen, didn't happen....so they just HAD to get Chael on there....with Bones. Hendo should have the next shot...not sure how he gets bumped out for Chael due to injury?

TUF ruins fights for me. Sick of top fighter sitting out that long to do such a dumb show that doesn't even produce good fighters anymore.

None of the Blackhouse guys will fight Teix.
