Thats what I'm thinking, Nog would have choked him out pretty easy on the ground.

I'm thinking Nog will get the winner of Kongo/Mitrione

You are being very delusional, Schuab was winning the fight. He was infact outstriking nog throughout the first round until that point. Nog had gone for 3 takedowns, schuab stuffed them all. From my perspective, this is what brendan did wrong. Brendan was countering well, but he made a few mistakes. He was circling, but he would start to back peddle and thats when nog went for a td or clinched. He should have kept circling and stayed off the cage. He did that for most of the fight, but it only takes one mistake to get caught.

Never considered Schaub a top contender.

But he had some potential. Still has.
But his mindset needs to be at the right place when he's fighting.
I thought he was doing pretty well up untill Nog basically caught him.
The first 2 mins of the fight looked like Cain vs Nog imo. The difference being Cain knows what and how to do it once he is in that spot.

Big congrats to Nog. He definitely deserved this win.
But, he is very far from the top of the HW division.

I have a desire to watch Nog vs Mir 2.
I don't know why...

He did nothing but box, he attempted no leg kicks, knees, he didn't bother to get Nog against the cage and smother him, take his energy, he just wanted to box.

What a satisfying night...like most I didn't think Nog couldn't pull it although I'm sure we were all rooting for em. He did it though...

Knew Nog was going to win, but I thought he was getting a sub. The guy just seemed to get underestimated by everyone coming in, but I knew Big Nog still had plenty of fight left.

Such a fantastic day for MMA, i'd hate to see a douche like Schaub KO Big Nog. I don't respect the way he's going out looking for big names that are potentially easy victories. Much love to Minotauro!
