Been wanting to see Nog/Werdum 2 for a long time

Big Nog looked really good at the weigh-ins. His last fight against PeeWee Herman he looked a tad on the sloppy side. This should be a great fight. I'm looking forward to alot of these fights but I'm most excited for this fight.

If Werdum wins I think he should get the Cain vs JDS winner. That'll be quit a long break between fights if the UFC grants him the next shot at the belt.

while i do have werdum winning a UD, i think hes WAY overrated and will absolutely get DESTROYED by either Cain or JDS

Werdum by decision or late tko? That's what I am thinking but I wouldn't be horribly shocked if Big Nog pulled a rabbit out of a hat though. I don't think Werdum is overrated as someone had mentioned. I think he is legit top 5. I actually have him right behind Cain and Junior. I think he should beat Nog in their rematch and would beat Overoids if they ever fought again.
