Is Big Nog passed his best.?
I have noticed that since his loss to Mir people on this forum dont think much of Nogueira's skills. Please give your opinions on him and whether or not you think he is still a title contender.
In my opinion his poor performance against Mir was largely due to the Staph infection that had him hospitalised for a week before the Mir fight which probably contributed to him being so damn slow in that fight. Nog was also complaining about a teared meniscus in his knee which couldnt have helped. Also to be fair to him I think he looked great against Couture. His boxing looked crisp and powerful, his head movement looked improved (although he still took some good shots from Randy) and his ability to sweep Randy from his guard was incredible. I for one would love to see him re-match Mir to see if he can redeem himself.
What do you guys think?
EDIT: Just to clear things up guys. I put Mir/Lesnar because I take them as the top 2 Heavyweights and Nog as number 3. I didnt think it through too well because I just assumed that if he can contend with one of them he can keep up with the other.
