    Who do you have winning this?

    I love Nogueira but Randy gave a strong showing against Lesnar. I dont know if Nog has anything left for Couture. Randy is too skilled to get submitted by him and I dont see Nog knocking him out.

    I think Couture wins a decision with dirty boxing, controlling from the clinch, and a takedown or two late in the rounds.

    Nogueira hasn't shown anything lately, and I think Couture's just too smart of a fighter to get caught in a stupid submission.

    1 poor showing :hsugh: i think FINALLY people have figured out his game. It doesnt matter if he is rocked he will submit you. Just let him keep getting up like Mir did and you can beat nog.

    Nogs got better boxing Randys got the wrestling neither can knock the other out or submit them. I expect a 3 rd randy hug against the fence fest but I hope Nog can prove me wrong and finish it.

    I don't give a shit about this fight. Neither or are will be relevant if Lesnar is in the UFC.

    randy. it will be a battle of mediocre boxing. nog won't take randy down, and randy won't get sucked into playing in nog's guard.

    So the only fights you give a shit about are between potential title contenders?

    WW and MW fights must really suck for you.

    No. These are two old has beens who mean nothing to MMA in this day/age.

    :ugh:

    a bout between Don Frye and Ken Shamrock would determine the future of MMA

    I'm not really too excited about this fight. It would have been AMAZING a couple of years ago, but I'm not so sure now. Nog really hasn't looked too good in any of his UFC fights... I'll have to go with Randy. He has still looked pretty solid, even against Lesnar prior to getting "caught" with that gorilla punch...

    In any event, I really don't want to see either guy lose right now.

    If Nog fights like he has at all in the past 2 years, he is losing a decision

    Randy still looks good, he only lost that fight against Lesnar because he took a gorilla punch to the back of the head.

    I really hope the reason for Nogs shitty performance against Mir was cuz of Staph infection or whatever they were saying he had. Either way though i still think Randy takes it via decision.

    I will be rooting for nog for some reason.. I... care about his future for some reason :ugh:


    But honestly, I have no fucking idea who is going to win.


    I think nog has some excellent sweeps and if he can get randy he could be the guy on top..


    just hope nog doesnt get knocked out :wtc:

    Jacare couldn't put away Randy and that's without GNP - no way Nog can do it..

    I like Nog too, hard not to.. But this is the most irrelevant fight ever. Two old timers duking it out. I wish they'd both quit.

    How is this fight more irrelevant than Rosholt/Leben or Vera/Soszynski?
