Nog is too old and too slow. And it seems he can't take the amount of punishment anymore that he could in the Pride days.

Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler

Nog will be able to get him down at some point and sub him it isn't like Schaub is even good at striking. Mir and Cain would both wreck Schaub standing the way they did Nog.

Won't be surprised either way, Schaub is on a streak but isn't that spectacular, Nog is tough and dangerous but battle worn and out of competition for a while.

Can't really pick a winner, I suppose Schaub should win but again, he's not great IMO.

I really, really don't like Brendan Schaub both as a fighter and as a person. Very arrogant and thinks he is way better than he actually is. He should be able to beat Nog just because Nog has been out for so long and age, but I would love for Nog to get him on the ground and choke him out cold.

Would you mind putting a picture of Big Nog on the front page instead of his brother Lil Nog?

Big Nog should take this fight easily if he gets it to the ground.

Unfortunately, Schaub because Nog's chin is gone. Schaub is bood at catching tha random punch that drops you, and I think it will happen to Nog on Sat.

Sad day to say the least.

I really don't respect either one of these guys.

Big Nog is my least favorite fighter, and I've always rooted against Big Nog. I can't stand him. People talk about how arrogant Schaub is, but Big Nog is probably one of the most ignorant sore-losers I've ever seen in the sport. I really hope his career ends worse than how Chuck Liddell's did.

That being said I can't stand Schaub. He's not talented at all in my opinion and will be the next Dan Hardy. A guy who is drastically overhyped who is only marginally good at one thing. The guy needs his confidence cut in half, and even then he'd still be arrogant.

I usually love watching fights where I'm rooting against both fighters, but I don't know if I can watch this one, just knowing one of them has to win.

I think I'm the only person on this board that thinks Schaub is a great talent. I don't really understand all of the hate he gets.

I know MMAmath is useless, but I tell you what, Schaubs win over CroCop was a hell of a lot more impressive than Frank Mir's win over him.

I was really impressed with Schaubs wrestling in that fight and his ability to take CroCop down (some thing Franky boy couldn't do for three rounds), he looked very explosive.

I also think despite CroCop losing, that, that was the best Mirko we have seen in the octagon in quite some time. He was hungry, physically in shape and a lot sharper than his other recent performances.

Schaub doesn't excel greatly in any particular area, but he's very well rounded and dangerous in all aspects of the game. Solid wrestling and solid striking with some good power.

That said, I don't like how everyone is writing Nog off. There is absolutely no shame in getting finished by Cain in the first round and prior to that fight, he absolutely dominated Couture for three rounds.

Tough one to call, but I'll take Schaub via a late finish.

Please provide some examples of this. I always thought there was a reason as to why he's one of the most respected fighters in the sport, and not just by fans, but by the fighters as well.

KO'ing Gonzaga and Cro Cop aren't exactly something that anyone can do. Also, he showed a nice overall MMA game against CC I thought, mixing in some TDs with his striking, took him down a couple of times, controlled him and GnP'd him a bit too.

But when you usually watch fights where you're rooting against both fighters (and considering you dislike these two, you probably tend to watch LOTS of these fights), one fighter is going to win - so how can you watch any?
