Nog should retire after this fight, there's no way he can win this

Are you getting them mixed up? Why should he retire?

Lil Nog's career in the UFC hasn't been devastatingly career shortening like his brothers. No need to retire.

Anderson had one of the better chins I have seen, then he gets dropped in both Weidman fights. Dropped by a not flush punch from the clinch. He got old, slower, hit by a very strong dude.

I hope I am wrong. But I just see a guy like Rumble having his way. Like people said, if Nog starts boxing him up, Rumble will probably take him down. Yea Nog beat Rashad, but what did that fight prove?? Win over Tito?? Before that he arguably had 3 losses in a row. I like Nog but he hasn't shown me much of anything in the UFC. I thought he would be more effective.
All this just to say it is possible to Rumble to finish Lil Nog in an MMA fight? Of course it is possible.

Beside the point, all the negative things you wrote about Lil Nog's run in UFC (UFC the entertainment, remember?) resume how much Dana and the promotion love Big Nog.

Sometimes you post things that make no sense.

All of that to refute your point that Nog has been in these wars and, especially any time this decade. And your idea that Runble finishing Lil Nog is a stretch.

At 37, slower, rusty...this is not a good fight for him.

Division is way to shallow to let Little Nog go. The guy serves his purpose, who else would Anthony Johnson face if not Little Nog.

Like placing a simple opinion that finishing Lil Nog is not an easy thing to do because he is a very durable fighter that been stopped only one time in his career?? This is totally out of sense to you? OK, then.

To refute? Is that the right verb? I could be the one wrong here in the English department, but to refute the points I brought? May be you mean to defend?

I never said or even think Lil Nog is the favorite going into this fight.

What's the over/under on Nog pulling out of the fight?

i think its naive to think that lil nog will be in top form. he rarely fights because of injuries. do you actually think he is going to be fighting at 100%? being an inactive fighter who seems to get injured a lot isn't a good formula for beating an explosive and athletic stud like anthony johnson. the nog brothers arent exactly fast either. very good match up for johnson it looks like. davis sets up his take downs terribly and even he managed to eventually win a decision against lil nog despite struggling a bit. johnson wins this one standing and on the ground imo.

if lil nog pulls out of this fight, he should think about retiring, and im not confusing him with his brother. lil nog may have been in less wars, but injuries have plagued him and he has become incredibly inactive. whats even the point of continuing if he keeps getting hurt? not doing his body any favors. hes not exactly young either. im not saying he should retire right now, but if he pulls out, he should definitely contemplate retiring from professional mma.

Also you're asking about Rashad when lil nog hasn't fought since the Rashad fight.

Ahhh Yea your right. Thanks for pointing that out. I forget he's prone to injury or pulling out all the time. Just not a big Lil Nog fan so I don't really keep up with em.
