I really dont know who to pick for this fight. I think right now, they are evenly matched and it will come down to who recovered the best from their last fight.

Attero Dominatus.

I hope Nog wins this decisively with a slick submission. He needs to have a nice win so we get to see him submit Lesnar for the title.

Whoever thinks Randy is going to win this one is not thinking straight. Nog brings things to the table the Randy is not going to be able to handle. Now I'm pretending like the whole Nog vs. Mir thing didn't even happy as he didn't look like the Nog that we're used to seeing.
I see Nog getting a slick sub on Couture after taking some punishment.

I'd rather see Cro Cop vs Couture but this will do since I've wanted to see this fight when they were in their primes. Well I guess you could argue Couture seems to look better nowadays than before.

Couture is an experienced grappler and I'm sure he can deal with, for the most part, most of Nog's BJJ. What will be more curious is whether the same Nog shows up from UFC 92. I, and I'm sure most of you, hope that doesn't happen.

Well, it's about time this fight is happening. Can't wait to see it. Personally, I think this will be an all out war, but I see Nogueira edging out a decision win.

The years have been kinder to Couture than to Nog. As Mir said, for a 32 year old, he walks like an old man with a limp.

It's going to be sad/scary to see what Nog looks like in 10-20 years.

That being said, I like this fight. I really, really like this fight. I'll take 15 minutes of Nog vs Randy.

And your excusing other people of not thinking straight. Your still daydreaming of the Nog of old but the fact of the matter is Nog's chin isn't what it used to be. Its very possible Randy can finish this fight in the same fashion as Frank Mir.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
