    Default Nogueira vs Couture Possible for June

    After the traumatic loss to Frank Mir at UFC 92, last December, Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira stayed in the U.S. to do, last Saturday (7th), a knee surgery, in San Diego. “Minotauro had a knee surgery and will be back to Brazil next weekend…He shouldn’t have done this fight with Mir, his knee was going out all the time”, said Luiz Alves, his Muay Thai coach.


    “He was supposed to fight Randy (Couture), but I don’t know. They haven’t confirmed it yet, and Couture also did a surgery in his elbow… But I prefer this fight, it’ll be good to Rodrigo. They want this fight and I believe it won’t be that difficult to Rodrigo. It’s a tough fight, but I think Randy has no knockout power in his punch and, on the ground, Rodrigo will submit”, bets.

    I agree with Luiz Alves, Nogueira will no doubt submit Couture

    this is the fight that they have to make happen for both fighters concerned. just a battle of HOFers and would be a very thoughtful and intriuging matchup.

    I agree. GnP stoppage. Nog looked like shit v. Herring, most of the fight v. Sylvia and utter shit vs. Mir. Nog is far, far from unbeatable for Couture.

    I'm a firm believer in Nog and his camp said that he wasn't 100% during the Mir fight, he just had knee surgery, so I'm hoping he comes in prepared, as long as he's prepared and he doesn't look like he did against Mir I'm sure he's gonna submit Couture, I know Couture is great with gameplans but what is gonna do keep the fight on the feet the entire three rounds? I'm sure Nog will find a way to put it to the ground, when he does, Couture will be finished

    I don't see Couture losing. It was said Gonzaga would be able to submit Couture if it went to the ground. I know Nog isn't Gonzaga, but I just don't see Couture losing. And as far as no Knock out power goes, didn't one Couture punch knock big-ass Time Sylvia down to the ground? And Frank Mir knocked Nog down several times from punches that weren't thrown with extreme power...

    If even a shadow of the Nog who fought Mir shows up.... Couture stops him. Nog needs to do a 180 from his Mir fight if he wants to get back on track.
