I would love to see Rogerio fight Anderson, I think Anderson's standup is better, his timing, distance and precision is superior imo but I would give the grappling to Nog no doubt, it would be a good fight but one we will never see unfortunately.

I wasn't intentionally trying to insinuate that Rogerio is a better fighter than Anderson, I never thought about it since they will never fight but just trying to point out the logic that due to Forrest beating the odds and pulling upsets in the past means he will be able to pull off any fight where he's an underdog isnt always correct and ive seen people pick Forrest in fights just because of that, people where using that logic to analyze the Anderson fight. Forrest is a tough guy with tons of heart but on paper Rogerio's skills standing up and grappling are better imo and which is why he should/would be the favorite if they ended up fighting.

Lil' Nog's only relevant losses are a very competitive battle with Shogun and a flash KO (fluke KO?) by Sokoudjou. Besides that he submitted prime Henderson in the first round, has has beaten Overeem twice, and we all saw him absolutely dominate Luiz Cane -btw Cane is on a six month medical suspension from that fight.
.
Dan Henderson was sick for that fight, which is why he looked so shitty, and gassed so fast. It was an impressive performance by Little Nog, though, for sure.

Good discussion either way.

I am new at watching lil nog, but I would assume his ground game is good as well since he trains with his brother.
Forrest won the stand up game, Rashad just took him down and pounded him out

I'll admit I haven't seen too many of Lil Nog's fights, but just watching him dismantle someone like Cain like that makes me really doubt Forrest's chances. Yeah I know the guy manages to scrape through a lot but IMO most of the times it's been against guys in bad form. Wouldn't mind watching this fight though, this forum was delightfully devoid of the forrest nuthuggery after the Anderson fight, wouldn't mind another few months of that.
