Big Nog is going to spank Pee Wee I got Nog by KO but all this talk of BJJ makes me think Nog is going to hunt for a submission

Didn't Pee-Wee get caught masturbating in a movie theater?

"I'm going to submit him but not with a jiu jitsu submission."

--"What style are you going to use?"

"Um...pain?"

I would suggest that everyone on this site take his words to heart and go with Herman by sub for their Playground pick.

I say there's a lot better chance Herman gets his walking papers after this one. He's not submitting Big Nog.
I guess you have to love his enthusiasm but Herman would've been better off saying I'm gonna Knock Big Nog out. Far more realistic, but I still doubt it.

Not everything originates from jiu jitsu just because it's taught in classes today. Multiple submissions used in jiu jitsu originate from among others, Judo, Sambo, Submission Wrestling, etc.

Obviously Herman trains submission offense/defense in some fashion but that doesn't mean he has to take jiu jtsu classes to do it.

That said, he's obviously being facetious.


Helwani "I heard from your manager that your grappling coach used to train Nogueira and Anderson right?"

Herman "I don't know, he's from Brazil"

I've never liked the Nogs - so I'm rooting for Herman to knock him out.

Awesome that Herman is picking the round & the method!

To be clear, I wasn't complaining about the statement.

I just thought the quote was funny.

Maybe Submission due to strikes but a TKO is more likely if he were to win.

Herman is really being counted out here. Nogs arm is not 100% and I think Nog is close to retired.

It's not like Nogueira has had one knee completely reconstructed, and major surgery on the other knee along with major surgery on his hip to remove bone fragments along with recovering from a snapped arm all in the last year and a half.

If he had, then I would definitely question his health.
