 The UFC realizes it is 134 and not 133 in Rio right?

I believe they do. That's why this Philadelphia event, 3 weeks prior is 133.

Finally, they put together a fight for Lil Nog that makes sense.

 Why thank you, captain obvious.

Why then, for the love of Thiago Silva, are Vitor and Lil Nog on 133 and Wanderlei on 132?!?!?!?!?

Sick fight and finally a nice match for Lil Nog. He will win this, most likely with a TKO.

They can't put every Brazilian on the Rio card. They have to think about other events. Phone Post

Lol @ thinking he doesn't have a chance.

Rich has the better standup, he'll either KO Lil Nog or win a decision.

"Lol @ thinking he doesn't have a chance.Rich has the better standup, he'll either KO Lil Nog or win a decision."


Rich's chin is questionable. He may have more going on in that area in the past but not so much now. he doesnt have the wrestling or the ground game for nog
rich has some hand speed but nog is a more intelligent and polished boxer.
he is able to look for and take advantage of holes in his opponents game pretty quickly.
and if rich tries rely ons leg kick he is going to be taken down.

 Sounds like Rog by KO.

Rich has seriously one of the toughest roads of anyone ever since the first Anderson fight.

Anderson Silva
Jason MacDonald
Yushin Okami
Anderson Silva
Travis Lutter
Matt Hamill
Dan Henderson
Wanderlei Silva
Vitor Belfort
Chuck Liddell
Forrest Griffin
Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
 
Out of his last 12 fights, 8 of his opponents have held major belts. 3 out of the other 4 have fought for a major title, and the other one has a win over the longest reigning LHW champ of all time.

Rich is the man. Great matchmaking. Can't wait too see this fight, and im glad we get too see lil nog in a different style fight then the smothering wrestler bullshit. Watching bader eat low kicks and right hands all night and then get takedowns with a minute left and win the round sucked watching for lil nog fans.

I would like to see Rich pull this one out. This fight is a better fight for Nog, Rich is not a wrestler, so Nog can relax and let his hands go.

It's going to be a great fight. I think Rich will take it by TKO in the 2nd round.

Ace has a couple more wars left in him.

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

More solid matchmaking by Joe Silva and co.

Much like Vitor/Sexiyama.

Very fine matchups while having such a deep talent pool.

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.
