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.
