Nog getting KO'd in training?

Is Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira's UFC 102 Training Camp for Randy Couture Really Going Well?

Royce_09_tiny by Kid Nate on Aug 22, 2009 11:29 PM EDT in News Comment 114 comments

Bignog_medium At the press conference call Nogueira emphasized that he is feeling the best he has in years:

"I'm 33 years old, and I have a lot to do in my career still," Nogueira said. "At least, I've got to fight a couple of more years.

"I know I'm still young and feel healthy. I still feel when I fight I'm very competitive. ... I'm in the best shape since 2005. I feel very good, and I did not feel like (that) in the last four years."

But rumors are swirling that his camp hasn't gone well and that he has been knocked out repeatedly in sparring sessions, a far cry from the iron-chinned Minotauro of old.

We will find out almost exactly one week from tonight. Personally, I'm hoping for the best Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira we've ever seen, but I just can't convince myself it's very likely.

The other question is this -- even if it is the best Big Nog we've ever seen, could that man beat Randy Couture? Perhaps if they had met ten years ago when Couture's submission defense game was much more limited. But in 2009, it's hard to draw a path to victory for Nogueira. He might be able to outpoint Couture on the feet, but he's never displayed KO power. There's no way he'll dominate the takedowns against Couture and it's highly unlikely he'll be able to sweep Randy from his back. That leaves the old hail mary triangle or arm bar from his back. But it's not 2003 and Randy ain't Mirko Cro Cop.

He's probably been training with Anderson. The fact that he isn't dead means he's ready to fight Randy on Saturday.

That's what I thought too but others don't seem to share the concern...

I hope this isn't the case...wouldn't want him to turn into Ali, or "Rocky" for that matter.

If Nog's chin proves to be seriously diminished, then he will be diminished as a fighter. One of his biggest assets was being able to take the necessary shots to get in and work his jitz. Without that, he is in big trouble with a ton of HW's.

Yeah exactly, especially seeing as Randy can drop some serious bombs and high kicks. If Nog's being KO'd a lot and losing his chin he could be in serious trouble early on..

I still think Nogueira can pull out his usual "ugly" win, so I'm betting on him. Even if he gets dropped -- that happened against Herring, right? And he battled back.
