"It would be a good fight. Forrest is an aggressive guy who fights on his feet, and I like that. He also has excellent Jiu-Jitsu and absurd wind. It would be a really good fight." -Antonio Rogerio Nogueira

I completely agree with Rogerio. I think this would be a really interesting fight. If Nog wants it, why the hell not? You know Forrest is game. They are both coming off of pretty good wins, especially Nog. I'd definitely be excited for this fight.

Intersesting fight of two fighters with similar styles.
It is funny that the two guys Blackhouse fighters would like to fight are Griffin and Mir.
Though for completely different reasons.Griffin because they respect the hell out of him and Mir because he can act like a douchebag at times but still a legitamite and dangerous oppenent.

"idk what everyone else has been smoking"

What have you been smoking that has you thinking Forrest would "wreck" Lil Nog?
I can see the fight being really competitive, I can see Lil Nog getting the KO (although I wouldn't predict that), but I cannot see Forrest wrecking Lil Nog.

I suppose my argument depends what was meant by "wreck" but I would say that Forrest hasn't wrecked any one in a long time (and isn't likely to do so against Lil Nog). He beat Rampage but that fight was close. Maybe one could safely say he wrecked Shogun but I don't think that would be an apt description.

I'm not saying you are wrong because Forrest COULD wreck Lil Nog (and you are entitled to whatever opinion you like) but I don't think he WILL wreck Lil Nog....and I haven't been smoking anything today.

Lil Nog by KO. I'd be shocked if it ended any other way. (Unless Lil Nog subbed Forrest)

Of course, this is a great fight for Nog...he is better than Forrest everywhere and a win over him would put his name on the map in the US (if it isn't there already).

I would love to see this fight. Nog needs an opponent with name value to make him known to the casual fan and I'm sure it would be exciting. I think Nog would win it wherever it went though. Standing or on the ground. He is better technically and has more finishing potential. The only place Forrest might have an edge is conditioning. Because it would be three rounds (and might not even go that long) I doubt it'll be a factor.

Nog would destroy Forrest. Like some of the previous posters have stated, I think Nog is just trying to put himself on the map. Beating someone with such a house hold name would just give him some star power -- or thats what he is hoping for.

I think the fight would be 2nd rnd ko for nog.

So I assume the plan is go have Lil' Nog beat all the top contenders while Machida and Shogun have a best of five series?

Okay.

That is my only problem with Lil Nog is that he is top competition but he wont fight for the title as long as the current champion holds the title. LAME! 1 more reasons to hope for Shogun to destroy Machida. (The other reason being because I hate Machida!)

This is a good fight for Lil Nog, not so great a fight for Griffin after fighting everyone under the sun for Dana lately.

Do you guys remember Shogun vs Lil' Nog? If you haven't seen it was one of the most exciting fights in MMA. And it was such a close fight all the way through. I'm going to watch it again tonight in homage.

I think that would be a great fight. Based on recent performances, Nog the Lesser would be my pick. I can definitely see this being a close and very hard-fought bout, though.

"absurd wind" Sorry, just made me think of Taco night.
Anyway, Close fight if you ask me . I thunk Forrest would be wise to try to work from the clinch and ake him down here. He has good sub D , but I am not so sure about his takedowns, although you would think after 3 years of training with Randy he would be good at them. I think Nog has much better hands, Forrest better kicks, but i give the edge on the feet to little Nog based on power. Tough fight to call and one I would really like to see.

Clean crisp counter punching from nog wins him the fight. He throws less punches, lands more and should land the harder shots.

rogerio is better standing and on the ground. i'm thinking lil nog would pick forrest apart. not saying ol forrest couldn't pull something out of his ass he's been known to do that from time to time.

I totally missed that.....what a sweet fight that could be! I think he'd have to get past Shogun though.....wow....the rematch!! That would be.......EPIC!!!!
