Big Nog is not a can at all in the striking game. He has outstruck his last 3 opponents. His boxing is very good actually. And everybody knows how good his BJJ is.
Werdum may win because he has improved a looot his stand up, and his BJJ may be even a bit better than Nogueira's, but I think it will be a pretty close fight that Werdum wins via decision.
I agree. Nog may have lost to Mir, but other than that and Cain, he's done pretty well. Even against Mir he did well, he was actually winning the last fight. And as far as Cain goes, besides JDS, I can't think of many HW's that could beat him?
Nog is older but he's a HW, speed isn't on anyone's side in that weight class, power is the last thing to go. Somehow his head is still screwed, a win over Dave and Brendan is pretty impressive to me, both those guys have KO power, good striking. Nog will give Werdum a good fight, and I'd think it would go to a decision honestly.
