Interesting. Lil Nog can box. Should be close there. We'll see if he can defend the TD though, which seems to usually be his undoing.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

This, but there are virtually no options that are a step up. DC should have been forced to wait for Rumble/Davis winner, but now we have two pretty underwhelming fights.

Nog is always game but I think Rumble is too much at this stage. Same can be said for DC vs Hendo. DC vs Rumble would have been very intriguing and a true contender fight.

Too bad Glover's out.... Manuwa. Is a bit of a step down rankings wise but I like that fight too..

I whipped out my calculator and did the MMAth. Lil Nog lost to Phil, Rumble beat Phil, Rumble should beat Nog.

That being said (in a joking manner) we never know with the Nogueiras. In the UFC both of em tend to beat the people that they on paper should lose to and lose to the people that on paper they should beat.

Rumble is looking great and although I hope Im wrong and would love to see some sick jitz and boxing from Lil Nog dominate the fight, the smart $$$ is on Rumble via control. Phil Davis beat Nog by simply laying in his guard for a few rounds. I think Rumble will be relatively more violent.

Hum. It's only a step down for Rumble because they gave him a top top fighter in Phil Davis in his returning fight to UFC, which was basically BS.
Anyway, I could totally expect him fighting someone lower in rankings on his next fight.

To say Rumble will finish Lil Nog is kind a vague forecast. Lil Nog was stopped only one time in his career, and he'd been to atrocious wars.
His boxing is sharp, I say way above Rumble's on paper, so that should be a very entertaining fight to say the least.


You don't have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body.

Pretty clear that the UFC want to build AJ up as a monster (which he may well be at LHW). IMO he gets a KO or lopsided Decision here.

Forgot about Manuwa, he isnt top 5 but he's a bigger test. That is a fun fight.

Talking

So who'll be the replacement to fight Rumble that night? Come on guys, Nog's got over two months to pull out, you know he's not going to be there.

Never will I ever be fake, never will I follow
