Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira

Best: Grapplers who can't strike. Nogueira's not worried about their ground game, of course, and he can pick them apart standing. Nastula, Werdum, and Tamura would be good examples.

Worst: Fedor. Not one particular style, just Fedor. Well, if I had to pick a style, then I guess it would be wrestlers who have good top positioning, good sub defense, good cardio, and can strike. Sadly, in the UFC, Nog would lose that fight, even though he was busy on the bottom.

thus why randy would probably beat minotauro...

Maybe, but I'm always going to be rooting for Minotauro.

Rogerio, Nakamura and Overeem all were beating him on his feet, he of course won each fight taking it to the ground.

Fedor is like the only fight Nog matches up bad with. He's beaten more acomplished bjj guys/other grapplers (Werdum/Coleman), larger sub guys (Barnett) and top level strikers that can defend the takedown (Cro Cop) and overall massive opponents (Schilt, Sapp). Fedor just isn't fazed by Minotauro's guard. Him and Couture seem pretty even at this point; I see Couture winning in the ufc and Nog winning under pride rules/criteria and in the ring.

OK well considering my favourite fighter and best fighter in the world is Fedor I will do him.

Best Matchups:Someone who has any of the following:
poor striking, bas submission defense, bad takedowns, is lighter then he is, someone who doesn't fight intellegently or someone that depends basically one one aspect of fighting to win

Worst Matchups Considering I have watched all Fedors matchups multiple times I have realized that contrarty to everyones opinions (even my own) he can be beat.
You need someone who is atleast 25 pounds heavier, has fantastic submission defense, very good BJJ, alot stronger then him, a great striker, unbeliveable takedown defense, about his height, has a very solid gaurd,faster then he is and most importantly of all a near perfect wrestler.

Watch Mark Hunt and Mark Coleman 1 and you realize he has alot of trouble getting guys stronger and heavier then him that are his height to the floor.Also he tends to give them good oppertunity to apply submissions, but since neither of them are that good at subs he was able to get out. Look at the Kevin Randleman match and you see how much a stronger wrestler can do to Fedor, especially with explosiveness and speed like that. Look at the Cro Cop fight and you see that Fedor can't really use his ground and pound with such a perfect butterfly gaurd.

So all in all..yeah good luck finding someone like that.

Forum Bets: 2-0
