Of course brazilians are nationalistic. Brazil isnt a colony of the US like Mexico, its a proud country !

All Mexico had was EZLN and people betrayed 'em just as they did aztecas...

Thats too funny all the brazilians picked Nog and Silva The truth is Nog is gonna get worked on the ground this time. I expect Cain to put him on his back and hammerfist the crap out of him most the fight.

These pros' picks have me worried because they have no reasoning for their picks aside from: "Nog is my hero so he will win."

Whereas, the pros picking Cain are giving concrete reasons as to why they think he will win.

To be honest, I thought Nog looked horrible in his first few fights in the UFC, even against Sylvia. It was only his last fight against Couture that he lived up to his reputation.

I'm still sticking with Nog, though. When healthy, he is devastating. And rarely have I seen a fighter take as much abuse as Nog does and come back to win. If he can weather the storm of a young, motivated, highly conditioned and extremely aggressive ground 'n pounder, Nog can win.

I don't think he'll dominate though. He'll survive.
