is lesnar structurally bigger than bob sapp? I think nog can summit him but as for a choke it might be hard for him to get lesnar. But nog can do it if gracie can get dan severn nog can get lesnar.
What does Gracie/Severn have anything to do with Nog/Lesnar? One BJJ fighters abilities & accomplishments does not have any implications on another. Also, how does Bob Sapp have anything to do with anything in this conversation of "current affairs"?
Let me break down the logic of what I was responding to:
A). Nog struggled to lock Randy down, even when he had a formidable hold/position on Randy (a couple of times).
B). Therefore, the issue regarding Nog having struggled to lock a submission against Randy, brings a relevant inquiry as to how this specific issue could be applied to an enormously stronger and significantly larger opponent.
C)(i). Nog beat Sapp in August 28, 2002. Nog's latest "issue" was on display a month ago. Unlike the theological concept of "once saved, always saved," fighters don't have the grace of "once able, always able," Furthermore,....
C)(ii). Sapp is a turtle on his back and he cried when he got punched by Mirco. The inadequacies of one giant fighter does not implicate all the others and Brock is an especially prominent exception to the flaws historically suffered by "big fighters."
Do I think Nog has a chance against Brock? Yes, do I genuinely question his ability to submit Brock, based on Nog's latest performance against a weaker, smaller, arguably slower and much older opponent? Yes. Just to clarify, clearly Nog dominated Couture in general, that's not the issue, it's the specific moments of his inability to seal the deal from a decent position on multiple occasions (therefore, less likely that they were mere fluke escapes).
