I can't believe everyone counting Rich out. If Sokoudjou can do it, Rich certainly can. Nog lost the first round standing to Phil Davis, who is not a striker. He also was getting outstruck by Edwin Dewees until he landed a huge combo. He was nearly Jason Brilz's first standing KO win. Who has Nog knocked out? Luiz Cane? Ace by KO.

More solid matchmaking by Joe Silva and co.Much like Vitor/Sexiyama.Very fine matchups while having such a deep talent pool.

Lol at everyone thinking Franklin has standup that can even compare to Rogerio's. Nog will tool him.

This is a great matchup, but also sucks since I'm a big fan of both guys.

 Good fight, I think Nogueira takes it via a narrow decision ala Hendo/Ace.
