Lil Nog vs Shogun II is the fight to watch.
Yeah I want to see that fight. In the first fight, Nogueira rocked Shogun more than once and probably even won the stand-up (in terms of damage) against Shogun (obviously the GnP sealed the deal for Shogun). This match would be interesting since their are no jumping stomps allowed but it probably won't happen until Shogun-Machida happens in May.

As far as the Forrest fight is concerned, I hear Forrest doesn't want to fight Nogueira because of his name value--MMA Live.

Yeah.... as much as I like Forrest, he's outmatched and outclassed here. Lil Nog by TKO first round if Forrest stands and trades which he always does.

if Lil Nog fights and Beats Forrest, and Couture beats Coleman like he should, they could Hype up Randy vs Lil Nog. That would be great.

Forrest vs Lil Nog is a great fight for the UFC.

It's too soon for Forrest to get brutalized again after only one win. This feels like another fight where he'll make the terrible decision to try to stand and trade, and get demolished.

If I can recall...he did pretty well "slugging" with Rampage. Everyone has it stuck in their heads how Rashad beat him...but Rashad is KNOWN mainly for his boxing and wrestling ability, he knocked out CHUCK LIDDELL BAAAADDDDD people. So think, he did well against good standup, and lost to great standup. Lil Nog is not that GREAT at standup, I would say he is good yes but not great...and on the ground agreed it would be in Nogs favor but Forrest can hold his own there too..he choked out Shogun (waits for shogun nuthuggers to make excuses) so in every aspect of the game Forrest is decent..he has a lot of heart if these two fought I think he would win.

My boy is gonna be running home again.

Always supporting:
Forrest
Machida
Wandy
Velasquez


Anderson Silva vs. Jon Jones is the best match-up the UFC has ever been able to arrange. Here's to hoping it goes down.

Oooh it'll be a hard hard night for Forrest if he takes Nog. He should rematch Jardine, and Nog should fight the winner of Rashad vs Silva (which he'll win) which could potentially (i'll route against Machida if this is the case) set up Nog vs Shogun 2.

Oh happy MMA days.

I just can't see Forrest ever beating a top10 fighter again. People have realized that he isn't a threat to finish anyone with a KO and can just go in swinging.

Supporting BJ Penn-Joe Lauzon-Brock Lesnar-Anderson Silva-Lyoto Machida

Meh, I think Rashad would beat Rogerio. It'd be a sweet fight, but Rogerio has sub-par TDD(Shogun took him down at will), and Rashad has excellent submission defense, and a really good top game.
