My thoughts-

Frank Mir-

1) Krysztof Soszynski (or however the hell you spell it)
2) Junie Browning

Big Nog-

1) Ryan Bader
2) Efrain Escudero

What about you guys?

Nogueria really seemed to really like Bader, it would surprise me if he didnt pick him top 2

I think you have the number ones right but I could see Phillipe Nover going after Junie. I think those are the 4 best fighters personally so I'm just going off that.

Yeah, that was my thinking in writing Bader for Nog's first pick. I think Nog could teach him a whole hell of a lot, but to be honest I'd rather see him work his striking a bit more if he's going to win the show. Mark my words in saying that no one on the show will be able to out-wrestle Bader. That is, unless Jimmo makes it back in somehow

Yeah, but just go look at videos of his wrestling matches online. The man is a phenomenal wrestler and athlete in general. He works hard as hell, too. He's absolutely BEAST for 205 lbs. One of the biggest 205 lb fighters I've ever seen

Yeah, thats one reason i'd like to see him with Nog, seeing as how he has the better standup of the two coaches, and coaches like Anderson and Lyoto never hurt either. I do see them trying to turn him into a Paulo Fihlo-like fighter during the course of the show
