All of Nog's losses have been to bigger, stronger wrestlers.
Loss Dan Henderson
Loss Fedor Emelianenko (Not a wrestler, but used GnP to beat him)
Loss Josh Barnett
well he obviously beat henderson in that fight, lousy decision in my opinion.
Fedor and Josh Barnett both have backgrounds that have emphasized submissions and defense in their base styles. Barnett's form of wrestling is fundamentally different than Cain's. Also hes better on his feet than Cain, which is the way barnett beat Nog, on the feet. When they had a grappling war Nog edged barnett.
Cain hasnt been challenged with his bjj defense at all yet, and because of that, i cant just assume cain is good enough to defend subs and transitions from Nog, as almost no one is.
