Big Nog getting knocked out in training?


Is Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira's UFC 102 Training Camp for Randy Couture Really Going Well?

At the press conference call Nogueira emphasized that he is feeling the best he has in years:

    "I'm 33 years old, and I have a lot to do in my career still," Nogueira said. "At least, I've got to fight a couple of more years.

    "I know I'm still young and feel healthy. I still feel when I fight I'm very competitive. ... I'm in the best shape since 2005. I feel very good, and I did not feel like (that) in the last four years."

But rumors are swirling that his camp hasn't gone well and that he has been knocked out repeatedly in sparring sessions, a far cry from the iron-chinned Minotauro of old.

I don't think that guy gives Nog enough credit. I think he'll win by submission.

 What's the chance this is just propoganda to get Randy to try and focus on the stand-up as opposed to the G'n'p. Ala Frank Mir faking injuries before fights?

Considering where and who he trains with, is it really THAT surprising?
