Yeah, but Nog did not look like himself in that fight. Shit, he looked way better in the third Herring fight and in the Sylvia fight. He looked like he had cement boots on and his boxing consisted of him biting Frank's knuckles with his teeth.

While I do think Nogueira's going to have mad problems in the next years, I don't think he's completely finished just yet.

I see Nog getting a slick sub on Couture after taking some punishment.
No, you are not thinking straight for "pretending the whole Nog vs. Mir thing didn't happen". You have to take that into consideration when looking at this fight.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

I agree with everything in here, that is pretty much my thoughts on this fight.

However, i do believe Nogueira is finished. He has always had those problems, but today they are simply amplified by age and his talents cannot cover for those problems anymore.

However, Couture is such a miracle, i wont never bet on Randy in any fight, yet i can never count him out.. But on this one i would say he will win.

I am rooting for Nog however, i want a slick triangle choke from him.

Bring back knees strikes on grounded opponents.. Give me good arguments for not having them for crying out loud.

I see Couture grinding out a controversial split decision after an exciting back-and-forth war.

I'd like also. Some people say NOG is done, but I'm sure he'll pull some beautiful victories before he retires, the same goes for Cro Cop... cannot say the same about Randy.

Favorite fighters:
1. Badr Hari
2. Remy Bonjasky
3. Mauricio Rua
4. Anderson Silva
5. Alistair Overeem

The event may take place in Portland, Ore.






OH SHIT!!! I am so there if this is true. I have been wanting to see a live UFC for so long, I will be camped out at ticketmaster overnight to make sure I get seats. It's got to be at the Rose Garden, where the Trailblazers play.
