    Randy's better wrestling would help him in these areas though. I'm sure in the cage he could get Nog down and while he won't finish him, he could win a decision. Logical choice is Nog though.

    randy might control the takedowns, but i think Noguiera is too good at grappling, and Randy was never very good against grapplers, because they neutralized all of his strengths, he couldnt ground and pound as well, couldn't pass guard very well, etc. etc.

    Couture wins by exploiting weaknesses. Nog doesn't have a glaring weakness. Randy could find a few things to try to beat him, but Nogueira is a complete and well-rounded fighter and would Randy a fit. In a championship fight Randy is down 3 rounds and gets subbed (punches) by trying to hard to win the fight.

    Default Noguiera

    Nog would armbar him, there is only one weakness in Nog's game and that is Fedor.
    If he can’t get the fight to the ground he is screwed, he'll get beat like a dog without an owner. Now the guy says he wants to kick my ass.

    Ricco TKOd Couture, plus Sakurai sub'd Ricco, Pe Da Pano sub'd Ricco, it was a matchup thing between Ricco and Big Nog.

    That and Nog has the best hand strenght and I think he could pull that arm right out. I think though that he would bait Randy and then just hook 'um in a split second and then it would be a tug of war for Randy's arm and Nog would pull it and then get the bar on. Randy's short limbs dont help much either for the bar. I would say that Nog is a better MMA subb'er then Ricco too.
