He said recently he rushed his rehab because the fight was happening in Brazil (more specifically rio, his hown town). And seeing him at the weigh in pudgy, disoriented and a decreped version of the Nog in Pride...I really think its wise to bet on Schaub as much as its going to suck watching another hero go down. I just think its time for him to go if he doesnt at least put up a good fight where he doesnt take much damage, he says he's fighting injury free but right after that he said he rushed his rehab...If he gets brutally KO'd or outclassed by Schaub do you think retirment is imminent?

I'm thinking he won't retire, even though I think he should if he loses this fight. If he does retire, it will probably be due to the old "Chuck" treatment, where Dana sits him down and talks him into it.

NO.

I do not want to see Big Nog retire at the hands of Schaub. If he wants to retire, he needs to campaign for notable opponents like Fedor, Crocop, or Mir for his retirement fight.

I find it hard to believe that any Athletic Commission would even allow him to fight if that were the case.

I heard his original eyes were switched out with his less talented brothers eyes. You saw Minority Report. Makes sense with the long layoff. Our technology just isn't up to speed yet, so his recovery took longer than a few hours.

He's had such a long lay-off that I think he fights at least one more time after he gets put to sleep tonight.

Had a feeling he'd win. Schaub just isn't that good. But think he should have retired anyway on top.
