When I heard the news I was about a 8. Then I realized that this just reconfirms everything I already knew about the UFC's Heavy Weight devision. It's a complete mess.

Title shots in this devision come by the way of Ouija board,lets not forget Randy just came off a loss to Chuck in LHW before his title shot.

I'm at about a 10. Randy's probably got like 2-3 more fights left before he is done and Brock Lesnar is a complete waste of time considering that.

I love Randy like everyone else, but you've got to question the whole "I want to fight only the best", when he takes a cash fight like this. I guess this should just be a warm up, but still, what if the freak hits him with a big shot or something? Bye bye Randy/Fedor, bye bye Randy/Nog.

Support Mixed Martial Arts, not Ultimate Fighting

Not that pissed. Nog deserves to fight Couture, but Nog's going to be tied up with TUF for quite a while. Personally, I'd rather see Randy fight Lesnar with the winner of that fighting the winner of Mir vs Nog than have Randy, Lesnar or both out of action until then.

"I don't want them to like me, because when I'm in the ring, punches fly to the face. It is not a tenderness time. I am not falling in love. And he knows that when the fight starts I am kicking faces."

I got a question for everyone who is pissed about this fight. What if the fight announced was Randy Vs. Fedor for the belt would people still be pissed Nog is getting over looked. Dana has always said he puts on the fights that fans want to see and this is a fight people want to see.

Nog never deserved a shot at the title damn he beat Herring and got a shot at the interim Title now Lesner beats Herrnig and its bullshit that he gets a title fight. The UFC has always and will always do this.

Chances make Champion's....Champion's take chances

Am I the only person who is sick of this "Nog will be tied up with TUF" excuse? TUF is done filming, and Nog/Mir is only scheduled one month after Couture/Lesnar. Would it really kill Randy to wait another month, and just make Couture/Nog on NYE? Especially since he's been MIA for the past while.

Then, Mir/Werdum could be made for a #1 contender's match, and Lesnar can be impaled by a giant penis tattoo (or face Junior Dos Santos, or someone else equally in his league).

Also, the talk of a "Unification Bout" is pissing me off. What in the hell are they unifying? The only title out there to be unified is the one around Fedor's pudgy, indestructable waist (the PRIDE one, not the WAMMA one).

Well if i was Nog my pissed level would prob be at about a 12. I mean Randy leaves the UFC and the title comes up for grabs and nog wins it. Now since Randy has come back they strip it from nog and say well you have to now win 2 fights to get it back.

It's really a raw deal for NOG, but it's still 3 good fights to look forward too for us fans.

I'm at about 5.

I think that its real stupid to not have Couture/Nog and if I were Nog I would be so pissed that I'd probably kill somebody. I don't understand why the UFC wouldn't unify the title first. I don't care about the TUF BS. When Nog/Couture presents itself to unify the title TUF fights need to be sh*tcanned....plain and simple.

I'm not gonna get that worked up over it thought because at least we get to see Brock get his fat mouth shut.....at least I hope we get to see his fat mouth shut.



Credit to Toxic for the sick sig!

Thats why i'm pissed off right there. Given the threads about fights in ufc that left you with disgust can anyone see themselves not wanting to puke if Brock won?

I'd say I'm a 10.

First of all, real champions don't walk away from their belts. When Randy left the UFC, he left the belt vacant and through valiant effort in one of the greatest fights this year, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira won it.

What happened with Couture and the UFC is basically like me running away from home for a year because I complain that my family treats me so badly, talking shit about them to everyone in the community, then walking back in through the front door of the house and acting like nothing happened.

Randy Couture relinquished his title, and in doing so left the path open for a rightful heir to take his place on the throne. That man, is Nogueira.

Now to further insult Nogueira by telling him he's not the champion, you're telling him that he's not even the #1 contender. Utter bullshit. The man is undefeated in the UFC, and the person in his stead for contendership is a man who just broke even in his last UFC fight; Brock Lesnar.

The fact more deserving contenders are being swept aside for a more marketable fight defies the purpose of what it ultimately means to be a champion. Championships should be decided based on who is deserving of a shot, by ultimately two of the best fighters (at the time) facing one another, something Randy may be, but Brock certainly isn't.

It just bothers me that revenue and marketability takes precedence over ethics. The UFC HW division is already a laughing stock, and the punch-line gets more ridiculous with each latest development.
