I'm voting for Lesnar, I think he's going to really run through Randy. I see Nog moving on past Mir but that fight is not a sure thing. Whoever comes out of the Nog/Mir fight I think is going to have an upward fight against a bigger stronger faster fighter in Lesnar. Now Nog has a legendary chin but I don't think he is going to be able to submit Lesnar who will probably fight similar to the Herring fight which is to say to not lose by sub. I'd love to see a Lesnar/Mir rematch, both fighters I like a lot but I think Lesnar walks away with the unified title and he will still get shit on in these forums. Really at first I was thinking this is the stupidest thing to do to Lesnar, but after thinking about it I think it's the BEST thing for him. Win lose or draw we all recognize experience as his greatest weekness by far, when this tournament is over I think we can expect to see his record giving him experience against the likes of Nog, Randy and Mir three of the best HW's of all time. Invaluable experience and probably will grow Lesnar more than anything he could possibly do. Anyhow, picking Lesnar but I'd be happy with any of these guys as champion.

I think Nogueira will prove that he's the man in the UFC once he taps Randy Couture in the finals.

If Brock beats Randy, then Nog will sub him. 25 minutes, Nog never quits, Lesnar will get tapped.

Where will Frank Mir be? Well, he'll be at his home, clutching his Urijah Faber poster, and sobbing his heart out. "Why? Why did Nogueira punch me in the face a million times?!? Will Urijah still love me if he see's me like this?"

Couture vs Nogueira is my dream fight, and I really hope it happens. Couture can bring the gameplanning, but he's no Fedor, and that's pretty much the only guy who can dominate Nogueira. Boxing wise, I think Nog's a little bit better. Couture definitely has the edge in the wrestling department and Nog's the man in the BJJ department.

Yeah I just want Randy vs Fedor out of all this. Randy kills Brock, while Mir upsets the world and subs Nog but meets his end at the hands of Captain America who in turn faces Red Skull! At that point we go Def Com Six and whomever's country loses nukes the other and zombie apocalypse begins!

Remember a certain super strong wrestler named Mark Coleman? Who had beaten Kurt Angle in competition? Who couldn't do sh!t against Nog in the clinch? Who Nog also owned badly and triangled?

Bob Sapp IS different from Brock: He was considered a dangerous STANDUP FIGHTER, and thus Nog wanted to take him down, not the other way around (which is what led to that awesome piledriver). And the Nog nnow is way better than the nog then IMO. It's been 7 years afterall...

Brock could win, we still don't know if he's the next "Fedor" or something, our in-data is not good enough yet. I will speak out more about Brock after his fight with Randy (although I do recognize him as a good heavyweight, destroying Herring and all).

I think Nog wins a fight against Mir, but I think it will be a lot closer than most think. I don't think i will be an amazing ground battle. IMO Nog is going to try to use his boxing and Mir is going to try to use kicks. I think Nog gets a TKO in round 4 or 5 after Mir gasses.

I don't think Lesnar is ready for someone with experience who knows how to wrestle. I think he will get frustrated that he can't control the fight and make a mistake early that Randy will capitalize on. I think Randy tko's him in round 2 or 3.

Nog vs Couture I think will go the distance with couture edging it out. I think Couture will stay in Nog's guard or half guard and score blows to edge out a close decision.

Randy/Lesnar is interesting, but if Couture is still the same fighter that beat Gonzaga he'll win. Randy just has to establish his pace and takedown game.

Unless Nogueira decides to **** off in the fight and get caught in a kneebar, he'll tko Mir.

Hopefully Randy finally doesn't screw the pooch again and we get him matched up with Nogueira.

Problem is Randy has stated that he believes Fedor will be his second fight in the ufc this time, there is a lot to lose if he gets tapped by Nogueira. But that could be a blessing, since Emelienko loves fighting guys Minotauro has already beat

After Chuck/Rashad fight I said I'm gonna stop prediciting mma matches alltogether. So, my WISH is to see Nog win. I think he has better ground and standup game then Mir although Mir can pull an upset and sub Nog.

Lesnar will be a tough challenge for Randy. IMO, he is too big and too goood of a wrestler to be taken down by Randy. But Randy, the original King Of Upsets, can overcome the odds again, I'm sure. Maybe he'll win via gogoplata

So, I believe Nog will be in the finals, but I wouldn't dare to predict the Lesnar/Couture fight.

Im almost thinking Mir because he is the guy everyone is looking past and he is very dangerous on the ground and it sounds in interviews that he is studying Nog hard and looking for weaknes's, I think its possible for him to catch Nog but if Nog is looking past him towards the winner of Couture/Lesnar then he is in big trouble becuase Mir will take that chance. If motivated and focused then Nog wins this but if evreyone is taking Mir as litely as it seems then they are in for trouble.
