Why oh why did they have to set up this fight? Randy is my favorite fighter(along side CC) but Nog is in the top 5 as well.....

A draw maybe? A guy can hope

Hard to pick this one.... I have no idea what Nog will look like compared to his loss to Mir.

I'll assume he'll be in better health, so it will be close but ill go with Randy by decision since ive learned to not bet against him.

I see Randy taking this one, most likely by UD.

It's gotta be Randy. He looked reasonably good against Lesnar and is always in shape. Nog on the other hand has looked a bit weary since being in the UFC and has shown very little to suggest he could beat Randy even if he is 10+ yrs younger. I'm a fan of both but Randy will take it.

I really hope Nog will win, which he can if he comes in good shape and well motivated!

But I fear that Randy will UD him...

I think I'm probably more intrigued about this one then I am excited. Obviously the shape Nog comes in at is a huge factor.

I cant see Randy finishing Nog but I could see him dropping him at one point, maybe in the second round. I think he will avoid the submissions and control where the fight takes place. I got Randy by UD.
