Nog is done, no other way around it.

or it proves that Cain is a badass and staph infection is a bitch

Yeah, that seems to be a problem with Big Nog. He gets staph alot and slumps. Maybe it has to do with his childhood injury!

I think he's got a few fights left. But he needs to change up his style, because he can't withstand the punishment that he used too.

Yeah, he can't do that stand still and box style. He needs to be a little more manueverable. Either that or he needs to takedown more!

I like Nogueira.
He is a legend of this sport.

But, let's be honest: he is done, as far as being a champion again!

He won't beat the likes of Cain (already lost brutally against), Brock, Mir or Carwin. Hell...i don't even think he can beat Nelson or Schaub anymore.

And he won't fight JDS.

But that doesn't mean i want him to quit.

He still has some good fights ahead of him.
I don't know why the UFC can't/won't put together Nogueira vs Cro Cop though?!! Their first fight was amazing. i'm sure they can put on another great fight...for them and for the fans.

I really hope the UFC has a secret plan for this fight: maybe they will make this happen for their first card in Japan. A.S.A.P. - they're not getting younger...you know!

Also: Nog vs Mir 2, Nog vs Struve, Nog vs Nelson...would be interesting!

.



BELIEVE!

Yeah, he is a legend and yeah he is probably done being a champion in a major promotion. He is probably like you said in the same situation as CroCop or Randy. They are older fighters who are almost done but have still a few good fights!

You mean Nog versus Fedor 3. Honestly that would be the number if you exclude the no contest. Anyways that won't happen unless Nog is cut!
