Junior dos Santos will defend his title against Alistair Overeem in the middle of the year. What are your thoughts about that?

Cigano wins via knockout, I’m sure of that. He’s a lot faster, knows how to move, he won’t get that knee, and he’s much more complete and has much more stamina, and that’ll make a great difference. Overeem has never defeated someone as big as Cigano.

How do you see Overeem’s evolution since Pride, where he fought names like Shogun, Arona and your brother, Rogerio?

Alistair Overeem is a lot bigger, stronger, more explosive, but not big enough to beat Junior dos Santos.

I never knew!

He is sure as hell more dangerous and skilled than those guys put together though
Haha no he is not. Imagine the type of fighter you would have if you combined the best qualities of Mark Hunt with the best qualities of Brock Lesnar.  

One of the best chins/hearts ever + high level stand-up, combined with massive size + athleticism + wrestling


He would reign over the HWY division for his entire career if a fighter like that existed

This is going to be similar to the Buentello fight. Reem via double underhooks.

Questioning Nog on a JDS fight is like asking Richard Dawkins if he is an atheist.

Here is a tip Interviewers, ask an unbiased source ....it gives so much more credibility to the interview. Should be asking Nog about his arm, when he plans on fighting again, and say the words Frank Mir and watch his facial expressions.

JDS is a better fighter in most every way, i don't remember his ground game. compare his fights to the Reems fights and you can see the Reems weakness matches up to JDS strengths quite well.

Big Nog hasn't seen the 2012 model, yet.

Stop reacting off the title and read the actual quote.

It's obviously no surprise Nog picks JDS over Overeem but I still think he is right. JDS (I don't think) will not have to much problems Overeem.

It will be a good fight.

For the 450K watching.

Had it been Brock versus JDS it'd be 1 million or close.

Unless they stack the card, it won't do big numbers.

Both fighters are big.

Neither are big stars. Phone Post

If they're smart, they'll show it on Fox. Ride the wave of the Brock beatdown.
